2015's Erotic Art Show is just around the corner...If you haven't started creating, it's time to get the creative juices flowing and show us what you got!
You all will be excited to know that this year's show has been moved to April 3rd 2015!! We are hoping that this will make travel easier for those coming in for the show... AND bring in an even BIGGER crowd than ever before!!
Artists from any location (not limited to locally or even Ohio) are invited to showcase and display one (1) erotic piece during the First Friday art walk, April 3, 2015, in downtown Zanesville. Ideally artists should be available to attend the show to talk about and promote their work, and promote erotic art in general.
Artists MUST submit UP TO three (3) pieces to The Erotic Show Committee for consideration. The committee will choose one piece for inclusion in the show. Be creative! We would like to see a good representation of erotic work containing men and women. Photography, painting, collage, multi-media pieces and more all welcome! Remember that this is a show to highlight and showcase the genre and turn viewers on to the pleasures of this art form and all it represents...think "classy and creative". Therefore, in-your-face genitals or "porn" without an obvious artistic reason or element to them will likely be denied acceptance.
Each artist will be asked to sign a contract/liability release holding TAC and the event team harmless from damage to artwork. Note: We will not be publishing a book this year.
The timeline is now set:January 1, 2015 – Up to three (3) pieces of artwork should be photographed and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before February 28th at midnight. March 7, 2015 - Artists will be notified if their work will be included in the show and which specific piece was accepted. March 14, 2015 - $10 entry fee is due to Natasha Oliver or may be sent via check to Natasha Oliver at 856 Putnam Ave. Zanesville, Ohio 43701. NOTE: IF YOUR ENTRY FEE IS NOT TURNED IN BY THIS DATE YOUR SPOT IN THE SHOW WILL BE FORFEITED. NO EXCEPTIONS.
- ART DROP OFF - March 25, 26, or 27th, from 12-2 or 5-7 p.m. If you need another more accommodating time and date please make arrangements prior to that date with a committee member to meet you at the studio.)-ART PICK-UP- April 3rd, 8:30 p.m. - . Please take your piece home with you at the end of the night if it doesn't sell or send a representative to pick it up for you! IF you are unable to attend the event and your art work is in the event you MUST contact a member of the committee to make other arrangements for your work to be returned in the event it does not sell that evening. IF you are mailing your piece please take all precautions to make your piece stable for shipping to diminish damage during transit, also if return shipping is required you MUST make arrangements for that to take place with a member of the committee as well. This will require YOU to pay for the return shipping, in the event your piece does not sell that evening.
What do you get out of this show:
Notoriety - This is the 4th ever erotic show in Zanesville. Last year's turnout was huge (500+ people) and we expect this year to be even bigger. It was publicized all over Ohio and many people have talked about it throughout the year. Great way to make connections and show erotic work that doesn't normally get a place to be seen!
Fortune - Yes, there is an entry fee, BUT hopefully you will be making that money back. The Artist Collective does not take any commission on artwork sold. Feel free to mingle, make connections, and sell.
Other details are in the works, but if you have a question, feel free to write a message on the wall of this event page or email the committee at email@example.com! Thank you and can't wait to see your submissions!
We are excited to see your entries, so start submitting them ASAP!! Let's make this show an amazing jaw dropping night that Zanesville will never forget!
