Raices Taller 222 Art Gallery & Workshop
"Dia de los Muertos"
November 2 - November 16, 2019
CALL TO ARTISTS
Raices Taller 222 Art Gallery & Workshop is looking for community groups and individual artists to participate in our annual homage to Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead, a cultural celebration in the tradition of the Hispanic southwest. Paintings, sculpture, photography & mixed media work will be considered as well as personal tributes and remembrances in the form of altars & ofrendas.
Please consider the following when submitting work:
Dia de los Muertos is our traditional celebration of our raices (roots) in southern Arizona. It is also our gallery’s annual anniversary. In order to keep the celebration sincere and non-commercial, we are asking artists to refrain from submitting images not traditionally associated with Dia de los Muertos as celebrated in the Hispanic Southwest and Mexico.
Examples of non-traditional images include photos of parades, images portraying zombie calaveras & skulls with sewn mouths as well as inappropriate images for children and families. Remember that Dia de los Muertos is not Halloween.
Submitted entries should adhere to and reflect the traditional and celebratory aspects associated with Dia de los Muertos. Please keep in mind that the work will be more suitable for our celebration if it incorporates the styles, symbols and general meaning of Dia de los Muertos.
ARTWORK SUBMISSION INFORMATION
Submit In Person - by bringing in artwork you would like considered to the gallery on Monday, October 28 or Tuesday, October 29, 2018 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.
