Artist Opportunities from Lawndale Art Center: DeadlinesApproaching!
The Big Show 2015
Application Deadline: June 3, 2015
(5 PM - Central Standard Time)
The Big Show
2015 will be juried entirely online! In an effort to eliminate the burden of hundreds of artists bringing their work to Lawndale over two hot summer days, we're trying something new in 2015. Artists will have until June 3, 2015 to submit up to three works online via submittable.com
for consideration for the exhibition. All artists will be notified by email of the juror's decision by June 17, 2015. We hope this will allow more artists to apply and save all participants time and energy.
The Big Show is Lawndale Art Center's annual open-call, juried exhibition. It has been an important venue through which emerging and under-represented Houston area artists gain exposure since the show's conception in 1984. The Big Show was formerly the East End Show, sponsored by the East End Progress Association, at Lawndale's original location.
Each year Lawndale Art Center invites a guest juror to select from work submitted by artists living within 100 miles of Houston. Artists are invited to submit up to three works of art, not previously shown in Houston, for a chance to be included in the exhibition and a shot at $3,000 in cash awards.
All application materials are due by May 31, 2015 (5 PM - Central Standard Time).
