Call to Artists: LAL Project Space: Deadline: April 11, 2009

Call to Artists: LAL Project Space

LAL invites artists to apply for an exhibition in the Project Space for its 2009-2010 calendar year.

The mission of the Project Space is to exhibit installation and new media work that is engaging, challenging, and experimental in both concept and execution. The Project Space, located in the basement of the historic Loudoun House, is 29’ x 20’ with concrete and brick walls that are painted white, and a concrete floor that is painted gray. There is one doorway (45” x 81”). The ceiling has exposed pipes and ductwork; the ductwork is 74” from the floor, the fluorescent lights are 84” from the floor. The basement also houses artist studios and storage spaces. Exhibitions will run for approximately six weeks, beginning in July 2009. The artist will be entirely responsible for the installation and removal of their artwork, as well as solely bearing the financial responsibility of any and all supplies and travel expenses, although LAL will provide a small honorarium. We encourage KY artists and those from surrounding states to apply.

To apply for the Project Space, please send a cover letter addressing the content of your work and the installation that you propose for the space, up to 10 digital images of artwork along with an inventory list of the images, and a resume listing other gallery exhibitions (if applicable). If the work that you would like to exhibit in the Project Space is currently unrealized, include a detailed, written proposal, with drawings or other images if possible.

Application materials are due by April 11, 2009 and will not be returned. Notifications will be mailed by June 2009.
