From Wailoa Center:
ARTISTS ON THE Big Island
Wailoa Center is poised to open to the public in July……however we have an empty gallery!!!!!!
Our next scheduled exhibit is Abstract Only! which was moved from August to October 2020, sponsored by Hawaii Island Art Alliance. Information on Abstract Only! coming soon to CaFE callforentry.org
But for now, we want to display your art! Here is the deal……. I will be accepting applications from June 1st to June 19th. You will need to email a request to email@example.com. First come first serve!
· You would get to set up your own pop-up gallery in one section of the gallery (There are 10 sections) from the alcove to the railing, for a minimum of one week to a maximum of two weeks. The thought is, we will rotate the pop-up exhibits so our community can come visit multiple times, having a different experience each time.
· This is a free opportunity for you to show your work and connect with members of our community. Social distancing and masks will be required for both artists and visitors during any interactions.
· Professional artists and amateur artists are welcomed. All medias, two and three-dimensional, original artwork only.
· You would need to install your art, make your own labels, promotional materials and be responsible for any repairs to your area.
· Art displayed must adhere to State Park rules of NOT displaying images of nudity, politically charged or religious subjects
· You will be required to stay with your exhibit while your exhibit is up or appoint a representative on your behalf.
· You can use the space for demonstrations or as a studio space (if not messy) so people can see your process. Tables and chairs can be provided.
· You may have your work for sale by taking orders or personally arranging the sale off site of Wailoa Center. A small donation to HIAA, a non-profit that helps support Wailoa Center, from any sales would be greatly appreciated and used to help facilitate future programing
· Installations of the first round of pop-up exhibits will start July 6th. Rotations will extend into the middle of September, closing on September 11th. The actual installation of your exhibit should occur on the first day of your exhibit
- Once the call closes, I will be submitting press releases about the artists and happenings related to the various Pop-Up events.
I know there are a lot of artists making and creating master works of art during the recent quarantine, so let’s see it in person, rather than sharing it on social media. This Pop-Up experience is design for artists to create their own display from start to finish, promote themselves however they want. Each artist will be required to be present on site during their exhibit or have an appointed representative on site who can talk about the art and the process. I understand that it is a huge commitment of time, that's why there is the option of one or two weeks. I'm encouraging artist to work on their art on site and demonstrate their process if they want. This opportunity is about artists making connections with the public and with other artists. The process of making meaningful connections with each other during these crazy times is more important now, than ever!
Hope to make this happen!
Feel free to share, I'm sure I missed someone, somewhere!
Aloha & Mahalo for your support of art and culture in our community,
