The Santa Fe Arts Commission Community Gallery announces a call for artists in New Mexico who utilize recycled materials in their work. The Community Gallery, in conjunction with the City of Santa Fe’s Solid Waste Department and the New Mexico Recycling Coalition, is planning an exhibit for the Fall of 2010 that features work from local artists who use recycled materials that are normally destined to become waste. The exhibit is tentatively scheduled to run from September 24 through December 31, 2010. Over 30 artists will be selected to offer a full range of work that expresses the positive impact(s) of recycling on the environment. In conjunction with the exhibit, numerous community events will educate visitors on the importance of recycling and offer resources to promote recycling in the community.
Any interested artists should submit an artist portfolio of their work to Rod Lambert, the Community Gallery Manager on or before June 30, 2010. Portfolios should consist of 5-10 printed images of the artist’s work (on standard digital print paper) and an artist statement, resume and/or bio. Portfolios should be addressed to Community Gallery, PO Box 909, Santa Fe, NM 87504. Please specify that you would like to be considered for the Recycled Exhibit.
