Artspace's Radius 250

Call for Entries
Postmark and Online Deadline:
April 15, 2011

THE WHAT? A major art show featuring artists working within a 250-mile radius of Richmond. Why that area? Because it takes in some of the Mid-Atlantic and some of the Southeast, and juror Leigh Anne Chambers knows there are a lot of good artists out there, and she wants to find out who you are.

THE WHO? Fine artists working in two or three dimensions, or in digital and video mediums. The only limitation is that they must work (create) within a 250-mile radius of Richmond. This includes Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Washington DC, Baltimore, and everywhere in between. If you aren't sure if you fall within the target area, check the map on the front of the prospectus to find out.

THE WHEN? The show will run June 24 through August 21, 2011. Postmark and online deadline for submissions is 11:59PM Friday, April 15, 2011.

THE WHERE? The show will occupy all 3,000 square feet of artspace gallery in Plant Zero, a renovated industrial building in Richmond's Manchester Arts District.

PRIZES. PRIZES UP TO $1000 and a solo exhibition in artspace's Helena Davis Gallery will be awarded at the discretion of Ms. Chambers.
SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS. Up to 3 digital images on CD at 300 ppi and 800 pixels for the longest dimension, or up to 3 minutes for moving images on DVD.
