Every year, Independent Living Resources hosts a wonderful ADA celebration called “A Roll In The Park.” This is the second year that ILR will also offer an arts exhibition as part of the event.
If you are an artist with a disability, please consider applying to show your art at A Roll In The Park.
Below is some information about the exhibit. Please contact Sarah at 503-232-7411 x 325 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to receive the full artist application.
Roll in the Park Art Exhibition at Independent Living Resources
Our mission is to build awareness through the sharing of art from the disability community and to create opportunities for independence by providing a business possibility through the selling of this art.
Thank you for your interest in our Art Exhibition. We hope we can include everyone who applies. If we cannot do this due to limited space, we will make every effort to be as fair as possible.
To create diversity in artist and artistic styles our selection committee will include 3 members of the disability community and 2 active equity community advocates.
There will be both spots for disability organizations and individual spots. The tables are 5’x2’. If you will not need that much space please let us know how much space your display will require so that we can create space for others.
We are excited to provide this opportunity for you to display and or sell art. We will be unable to provide any support for selling art at the event but artists who attend the event or send a representative to stay with their work are welcome to sell at the event. Artists wanting to sell work who are unable to attend are also welcome to provide business cards for negotiation of sales outside of the event. All proceeds from art sales go directly to the seller who will be fully responsible for all financial transactions in selling their art.
Work accepted includes, but is not limited to:
2D Media: watercolor, oil, acrylic painting, photography, printmaking, drawing, mixed media
Ceramics/Tile/Mosaic Glass Sculpture Jewelry Textile Wood/Metal Crafts Book Arts Tactile
Applications MUST BE RECEIVED no later than Monday, August 5th, 2013. No exceptions!
For artists who would like help with the application or do not have digital images or photos of their art work or themselves we will be having an Artist Open Call Afternoon on MONDAY JULY 22nd from 2 – 4pm at Independent Living Resources (1839 NE Couch Street) where the exhibit will be held in September.
