Call to artists: The Artistry of Hope Show: Deadline: April 1 2009

The Artistry of Hope Show

A Call to Artists....

Come join us in celebrating the 10th anniversary of "Danita's Children". For the past 10 years Danita Estrella has devoted her life to taking care of orphaned children in Haiti. Her sacrifice and determination to see these children prosper has been an incredible exercise in love, faith, and courage. This April the 18th we have the opportunity to help her continue her journey by taking part in a one night show at Davis Art Advisory's downtown gallery, THE SHOWROOM that illustrates our own perspective of hope.

The "Artistry of Hope" will draw in hundreds of donors, celebrities, and people that just want to make a difference. We hope that you will be compelled to create works of art that inspire others to help make the world a better place for the children of Haiti.

Here is how it works: To be selected as an artist for the show, you must submit 3 examples of your CURRENT work to for jurying. These pieces do NOT have to be hope inspired, just work that represents what you are currently doing. We accept small file digital photos through email or a website link. (Work is selected on the opinion that it works well with the other artists and the theme of the night as a whole.)

If you are selected to be in the show:

Each artist can submit up to three pieces of artwork for the show, but there is no guarantee that we can hang all three pieces. Please be prepared to take home any remaining work and/or your packaging, etc. All work needs to be hang-able upon delivery. Because this is a fund raiser event, a percentage of the sale will go to the children. We want this event to be a win for everyone, so we are giving the artists the option to donate 50%, 75%, or 100% of their sale, which goes directly to the children in Haiti and is tax deductible.
