BAY AREA FIGURATIVE RENAISSANCE - A book of work inspired by BAMG models - Deadline DEC 31
Oct 5, 2010 --
A book of Bay Area artist's works inspired by models of the Bay Area Model's Guild.obj12geo11pg1p14.jpg
We hope the publication of this book will create an historical and memorable display of the flourishing Figurative Renaissance in the Northern California, San Francisco Bay Area and showcase the Bay Area Models' Guild's influential role in this Renaissance. This juried selection of art will celebrate over a half century (1946 -2010) of collaborative work between art models from the Bay Area Models' Guild and Bay Area artists.
We also wish to provide promotional value for the artist who graciously allow us to publish their art. To enhance this aspect, the book's appendix will (at the artist's option) list their contact and website information. We are planning wide commercial distribution of this first edition.
How to submit artwork for publication.
• All art must be done from Bay Area Models' Guild models.
 Open to both 2-D and 3-D works.
 One to three (maximum) entries of figurative art work
 Open to all media (charcoal, ink, oils, acrylics, clay, metal...)
 Fee: $5.00 per entry, payable with entry. Nonrefundable. (3 works - $15)
Jury Panel
The artwork will be judged by a panel of art instructors, artists and gallery curators local to the Bay Area.
Selected Art Work
Notification of selections will be in February 2011. At that time selected artists will need to provide a high resolution image. This should be a digital file of approximately 300dpi at 8 x 10 size (2300 x 3200 pixels). Color should be RGB. We will attempt to assist artists who have difficulty providing the necessary high resolution artwork at a cost to the artist.
All selected artists will need to sign release forms. We reserve all rights of placement, size, and location of work displayed in the book. As with all color printing, colors may vary slightly, but every effort will be made to reproduce colors accurately - based upon the jpg file.
