Hiya everyone. I'm posting to put out an artist call. I'm just a homeless artist guy and somehow I have been set up to have an exhibition at a coffeshop/gallery next month! I've been meeting alot of nice people. The theam/tital of the show is Minnesota Mediocre. I think it's a joke aimed at big time new york Artists and other folks that think minnesota art is mediocre, so we are going to have a pretence shatering show. The idea is to show something "mediocre" or meak in your reletive opinion. Something you can sell for a very modest price thus introducing yourself in a nice way to people who might not have ever bought art before. Here is what my friend Jaime wrote for us:
Looking for artists to produce and provide 5 artworks for sale in an Uptown Pocket gallery.
The works need to be ready to go out the door. Framed and wired for hanging.
They need to hit the following price breaks:
$25.00 to $35.00.
$36.00 to $50.00.
$51.00 to $85.00.
$86.00 to $150.00.
25% of the sale price goes to the gallery which is a not for profit venture.
You will be part of the MM movement that is attempting to make art affordable to the average Minnesotian.
