Plans are well underway for the Harbour City Bears Bear Essentials 15 Program and it definitely looks to be an exciting line-up of events for 2011. One of the events will be the Bear Artspace which is in its third year. This part of the program provides a great opportunity for established and emerging artists to display their work and for the community to see the skills of talented individuals amongst us.
In previous years, we’ve seen fantastic high quality pieces including painting, mixed media, photography and digital artwork.
The exciting news for the 2011 Artspace, aside from the artworks to be displayed, is the fact that Monstrosity Gallery will be the venue for the exhibition in 2011. The launch for the exhibition has been set for Monday 21 February, 2011, with the closing day being Wednesday 2 March, 2011.
So this is a call-out for Artists from the bear community to submit works for the exhibition. The artworks can be bear related, or they can be works submitted by bear artists. If you would be interested in displaying your work, or know of someone who might be, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a Submission Pack will be provided. We are ready to be bear-dazzled by our talented folk.
There were some mighty fine artworks in this last year. In fact, I think that was where my lovely photo of egg-Manky by Brian W-C was originally spotted (and then the lovely sneaky Monster snapped it up for me as a housewarming pressie – bless it). And as an extra bonus, not only do you get some very pervy artworks but they’re gonna be displayed at my mate Phil’s Monstrosity Gallery. You have from now until January 14 to get something submitted. Woof!
