Call for Entries Artists - For Climate's Sake!

Art Show at Clementine Café - January 2011

Sponsored by Climate Action Alliance of the
Valley

Climate Action Alliance of the Valley (CAAV) is soliciting art works
for a show at Clementine Café for the month of January 2011. Climate
Action Alliance of the Valley is a local grassroots group dedicated to
limiting the human impact on climate in order to protect the future of
Earth and its inhabitants. In addition to advocating to our
legislators that they vote according to the science of climate change,
we work to educate ourselves and others about the effects and
immediacy of climate disruption.

Because of humanity's dependence on fossil fuels and the effect this
has had on our environment, we feel urgency about the need to change
the ways we live in order to decrease the pace of warming.

CAAV is soliciting art work reflecting this urgency. Personal
reactions to climate change threats are often emotional, and are an
essential component of what we learn and wish to pass on to others.
Art can convey our emotional responses to this crisis, and we invite
you to submit work which expresses this.

All entries are welcome, but space is limited. CAAV Show organizers
will accept up to30 entries depending on the size of the work. The
space at Clementine can accommodate art appropriately mounted to be
hung flat against the wall, in most cases, with the use of wire and
eyehooks.

All you need to do is:

1. Submit a picture of your art work and its dimensions either to: 1)
Page Shields at page60@comcast.net; Lynn Smith ( if you have a Mac
computer) at tracksmith@aol.com ;or send it to Cathy Strickler at 1225
Hillcrest Dr., Harrisonburg, VA.

2. Deposit your art at the home of Cathy and Charlie Strickler
(address above) on:

Dec. 18, 19, or 20, along with your signed "agreement" which is
attached below. Also, attach a label to the work which includes your
name, the name of the piece, the medium used, and the price if you
intend to offer it for sale. Selling art is between you and the
purchaser, so please include contact information on the label also.

Installation of the art will take place on Jan. 2, and it will be
taken down on Jan. 30. You may pick up your art at Clementine between
10 and 12 AM on January 30, 2011.

There will be an Official Opening for the Show held on Friday, Jan. 7,
from 5-7PM. You are invited to this event and may invite others to
attend with you.

If you have any questions about this Show and/or this information,
please contact: Page Shields at 540-746-8494 or by email at page60@comcast.net.
