Hospice of Santa Barbara Calls on Local Photographers for Public Art Opportunity
Deadline to submit proposals is June 10th
May 5, 2011, Santa Barbara, CA— Hospice of Santa Barbara invites regional artists, either individuals or group, to submit their photographic hanging works for consideration for the Leigh Block Gallery at Hospice of Santa Barbara. Art that explores grief, loss, life-threatening illness, or end-of-life is desired, as are themes reflecting one’s journey after a loss.
Hospice of Santa Barbara introduced the Leigh Block Art Gallery in January 2010. To date six exhibitions have been on view at Hospice of Santa Barbara.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 10, by 4:30 p.m.
These exhibitions are to be an expression of Hospice of Santa Barbara’s vision and commitment to heal the fear of death, confront the loneliness of grief and honor the healing power of compassionate care as we learn to live and love again after loss. The exhibitions will run quarterly: July – September 2011, October – December 2011, January – March 2012, April – June 2012.
Artists interested in submitting must send a cover letter and a disk contacting images or proposed work and a current resume. Groups may also be considered for one exhibition. Detailed instructions for artist submissions can be found at Hospice of Santa Barbara’s homepage at www.hospiceofsantabarbara.org.
The Hospice of Santa Barbara Art Review Committee may choose two to four exhibitions from the entries submitted for the 2011-12 calendar years and will consider creativity, aesthetics and appropriateness of concept. Each exhibition will be on view for approximately three months.
For more information, please call K.C. Murphy Thompson at (805) 563-8820 or visit www.hospiceofsantabarbara.org for complete instructions.
The mission of Hospice of Santa Barbara, Inc. is to provide care to anyone experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness, or grieving the death of a loved one.
