Call for entries: Art for Africa @ the Emerson

In the Spotlight by June CourcheneThe Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture is hosting Art for Africa, an exhibition that will display works of art inspired by Africa. Art for Africa strives to increase involvement of the artist community in global events, and aid in the recognition of visual expression as a force that can instigate and create change. This show is a fund-raiser for the Uganda Orphans Fund, a local organization committed to improving the lives of Ugandan Orphans. Your participation in this art exhibit may make a difference in the lives of African children.

All artists who have created wall-hung artwork that is in any way inspired by Africa are invited to submit work to Art for Africa. Each work must be ready to hang, either framed or canvas stretched on substantial stretcher bars with a professional appearance. The Weaver Room is an uninsured space, therefore artists show at their own risk. If there is a sale, the artist will receive 60% of the retail price at close of the exhibit and 40% of the sale will be donated to the Uganda Orphans Fund.

Smiling boy 72 by Tiffany LilleguardMontana State University art student, Felicia Reynolds will jury the submissions. This exhibit is her thesis project. You will be contacted to pick up your work if it is not accepted. All accepted submissions must remain hanging in the Weaver Room for the duration of the exhibit.

Submit artwork to Felicia Reynolds in Room 215B, across from the Weaver Room in the Emerson on Wednesday, April 9th from 3-8pm.

The exhibit will run April 21 – July 31, with the Weaver Room open every day from 9 am – 5pm unless an event is scheduled. The Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture is located on 111 South Grand Avenue.

For further information contact Felicia Reynolds at (406) 585-4639 or felicia.g.reynolds@gmail.com.

    Awesome stuff! Keep up the good work. My wife and I live in Uganda helping orphans. We work for an Orphan Program called Feed His Lambs. It’s great to see others help fight for Uganda! You can check out our blog at:
