Current calls for artists

Call for artists + workshop proposals: “Construct and Deconstruct: Queer Visual Dialogues” (June 2018)

In honor of the LGBTQ+ History Month in this challenging time for the queer community, the Floy Preslar Gallery will present a juried art exhibit that explores the subjects of identity, sexuality, self-image, and community at the intersection of queerness and other challenges in life.

All 2D medium are welcome for this show, subject to our artists’ guidelines. This call to artists is open to all LGBTQAINP+-identified artists in Oregon and Washington.

In addition, on the show opening day (Saturday, June 2), we will be hosting a variety of workshops and other activities to celebrate the queer art community of Northwestern Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Workshop proposals are also accepted. Each workshop may be an hour-long, 90-minute-long, or two-hour-long, and workshop presenters may charge a fee from participants to cover the costs of materials and labor involved. We are looking for up to four workshops.

Other possible activities currently under consideration include a non-instructed figure drawing session, an outdoor area set aside for artistic photo shoots, and an evening of community celebration with potluck, barbeque, and open-mic.

Deadline for art: Saturday, May 12.

Deadline for workshop proposals: Saturday, May 5.

Art show opening day events: Saturday, June 2.

The show runs from Saturday, June 2 through Sunday, June 24.
