CALL FOR ART: Beginning Middle End
Every great story has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Dyer Arts Visionaries (DAVe) announces an unprecedented, three part show series to capture it all. We want to see your great stories.
To that end, we are accepting submissions for THREE concurrent shows for Fall 2017. The Beginning starts at WildRose Brewery in Griffith. The Middle lands at Sip in Highland. The End concludes at Paul Henry’s in Hammond. Three venues. Three towns. Three related themes. One epic series.
Artists may submit up to three (3) pieces per location. Work will be initially juried by a DAVe curatorial team. Fees: $5/accepted artwork for DAVe members and $10/accepted artwork for non-DAVe members. Membership must be current at time of submission.
