Fabulon, a Center for Art and Education in Charleston, SC, Calls for Entries for “TRIBUTE” – Deadline Aug. 21, 2017

July 31, 2017

So many tragic losses of great musicians in the most recent years. Each week it seems another icon from the classical rock era or maker of the epic album has passed. The legacy of poetic lyrics, our only consolation.

As part of Charleston’s Poetry festival, Fabulon Gallery will host a show of work inspired by music because it plays such an important role for many visual artists. It’s in our soul, it moves us, and it translates into our images.

A certain song can take us to a special time or place in our own history. Maybe it’s the beats, tunes, musicians, instruments, or lyrics. Perhaps it is just one line from a song? Or the entire life of the artist. Do you have your own theme song? Do you have one song that gets you in your artistic groove?

Pay tribute to your favorite inspiration. We will accept portraits, even Elvis on velvet.

Ideally we seek poetic music that becomes inspiration for an image.

Please no copyright infringement. It is the responsibility of the artist to do the research. As a gallery we do our best to protect your copy rights; please do the same for our musical artists.

Send up to five images that reflect this theme. We will choose up to three for the exhibit and sale. Artists must send a statement connecting their work to the theme.
All work must be for sale. The gallery receives 40% of the sale. Artist is responsible for delivery and pick up of artwork. Artwork may be brought to the gallery in person Tuesday-Saturday 10-5pm, or shipped using FedEx or USPS only (NOT UPS) with shipping labels both ways. No packing peanuts, please.

Artwork must be in hang ready condition with wire method only, no sawtooth hangers will be accepted. Each piece must have a label firmly affixed to the back, stating name, title, and contact information. Artwork must have been created within the last 2 years, not derived from copyrighted images, and not created under the direction of an instructor. We will accept images of work in progress, with the understanding it will be finished by the deadline.

Deadline for submission is 8/21/17, artists will be notified by 8/31/17.
Work must arrive by 9/29. Work will be on display from 10/1/17 through 11/19/17. Artists’ Reception on 10/21/17 5-8pm.
