ARTIST CALL for Made In Brooklyn
THEME: What is "Brooklyn Style"?
Brooklyn, aside from being the largest borough of New York City by population, is where a large cross-section of people of many different backgrounds, cultures, and religions mix it up and exist apace with each other. For some inexplicable reason, Brooklyn maintains a unique flavor all of its own in spite of the increased gentrification and overly pricey property development.
Ouchi Gallery's latest endeavor, Made In Brooklyn, explores what makes Brooklyn so BROOKLYN by asking artists of all disciplines to design a T-shirt as a piece of artwork with Brooklyn being the central focus. Part exhibition, part challenge, Ouchi asks gallery patrons to vote on the work they feel embodies Brooklyn the most. The chosen representative will then have their work printed on a T-shirt and sold online via Ouchi Gallery's own Ouchi Brooklyn imprint.
HOW TO APPLY
Artists and designers wishing to apply and participate will be asked to create their unique work on an 11" x 14" sheet of poster board using our template. Templates, which include a frame, will be available for pick up at Ouchi Gallery in person. All entries that are not selected will be placed in a database for future consideration. There will be a $50 entrance fee to help cover processing of applications and expenses. Artists interested in applying can e-mail Ouchi Gallery at email@example.com.
Gallery patrons will be able to vote via dollars. The audience votes for their favorite artwork by placing a dollar in each respective artist's receptacle. The more dollars, the more votes. The victor will be determined by the amount of dollars their work raised. Best yet, all artists get to keep the money that was used in voting on their respective works.
