South End Verses Call for Works Now Open!
South End Verses at C3Lab invites all artists, designers, photographers, writers, social entrepreneurs, and community activists to submit up to 3 SAMPLES of art work or 2 one-page samples of writings for the upcoming art collaboration of the South End Verses Collaborative Public Art Project. This project highlights creative works and words from people in the Charlotte community. From fine and graphic artists to all classifications of writers, one visual artist and one wordsmith will be chosen then paired together to collaborate and create a NEW outdoor public artwork piece that will visually communicate and reflect their shared vision of the state of Charlotte and the community today.
The South End Verses Committee will select two collaborators from the sample submissions who will have a month and a half to work together to create and produce the NEW public art piece.
Must be over 18 years of age
Must reside (at least one year) within Mecklenburg or the surrounding counties
Call is for creatives working in the visual arts (including painting, printmaking, illustration, assemblage, collage, fiber, photography, drawing, sculpture, installation), graphic designers, writers, poets, journalists, community activists and any actively engaged wordsmiths in the community.
Deadline to submit art or literary sample work is Friday, February 22nd, 2019. Please submit your name, email, phone, a short bio about you & your work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
C3 Lab accepts exhibition proposals for solo, group, and curated exhibitions on an ongoing basis. Submit one (1) PDF file that includes a detailed proposal, up to 10 images of proposed work, and artists’/curator’s CV or bio to Micah Cash, Artistic Director, at email@example.com.
While we receive a high number of proposals for a relative few exhibition spots, we will respond to all requests and keep all proposals on file for two years.
Artist & MakerSpace Studios at C3Lab
Being a creative hub in South End, C3Lab supports the efforts of artists at all stages of their careers by offering affordable artist space. To sustain the local arts community, C3 provides common spaces where artists can meet, socialize and collaborate, learn together and have creative dialogue about art being created, exhibit their current works and/or WIP and thrive in their artistic practice. C3 hosts an art exhibit each year featuring all the artists in Gallery C3.
