The Governors Island Art Fair is accepting submissions for its 4th annual exhibition in September (2nd-25th). Governors Island Art Fair is dedicated to promoting independent artists. Governors Island is only 800 yards (a 5 minute free ferry ride) from Lower Manhattan, and even closer to Brooklyn. It is, perhaps, the very last great expanse of undeveloped space for public use in New York City.
The call for submissions is open to all artists with 2D, 3D, video, sound, performance and installation works. Artists can submit up to 5 JPG, MP3, MP4 and FLV files, also a resume/CV. Artists must set-up all artworks themselves or make arrangements for installation. To offset administrative costs, there is a $20 charge to apply to the fair. Once accepted there are no other required costs. Participating artists have the option to have their work published in the show catalog for $20. Art handlers are available for a fee. The deadline is July 3rd, 2011. For submissions and guidelines please go towww.4heads.org
