Artist Call – Sheltered: an art benefit for animals at risk

Sheltered, an art benefit for animals at risk in our communities, is seeking artists for a juried exhibition to be presented at the Davis Arts Center, Davis, CA.

The five-week show is open to all residents of the US, 18 years and older. The theme of the show is “shelter.” Artists are encouraged to interpret the theme broadly from their own unique perspective. All art mediums will be considered (painting, drawing, photography, multimedia, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, etc.) Works can be abstract, symbolic, realistic, representational, pastoral, urbanesque, minimalist. We want to see your vision! A percentage of net sales (artists can choose from 50% to 100%) will be donated to national and local nonprofit animal welfare agencies selected by organizers as Beneficiaries.

Entry Deadline: July 31, 2014
Event Dates: 10/10/14-11/15/14
Opening Reception: 10/10/14

Sheltered seeks to raise awareness of the staggering number of homeless animals who will never find shelter. In addition to the art show, lectures, workshops, clinics, and other outreach activities are planned. The events coincide with Adopt a Shelter Dog and Adopt a Senior Pet months. The opening show and reception will be included in the 2nd Friday ArtAbout in Davis.

The Exhibition will be curated by Philadelphia-based artist and professor Ryann Casey.
