CALL FOR ART: "Less Than Three" (The Heart Show)

The snowflake show from December was so much fun that we've decided to do another ornament exhibit for Valentine's month! Sponsored by Braden and Rachel of the Seattle Arts Coalition, we present: "Less Than Three [ ♥ ]"


The materials:
Laser cut hearts (provided by us, c/o Bellevue Fine Art Reproduction )
Ribbon for hanging (provided by us)
Your imagination (be creative and have fun!)

The challenge:
Create your own unique heart(s)!
(Up to 4 per artist)

There will be two shapes, an anatomical heart and a graphic heart. The only stipulation is that you use one or both of the original heart ornaments as the base of your creation, and that they can hang from a ribbon on a wall so that we can display them at the 1st Thursday Art Walk. (This doesn't mean your design has to be 1-sided or even flat; feel free to 360 it!)

Tuesday, 14 January at Trabant Coffee and Chai in Pioneer Square

On or before Wednesday, 5 February at Trabant in Pioneer Square by 6pm

Thursday, 6 February

Trabant has a sign up sheet for your name, contact info, and the # of hearts you're making. When you bring your pieces in, please include name, title, and price (if for sale; consider Trabant's 40% cut). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE include business cards in case people looking at your work want to see more of it. If you don't have business cards, ask us; we know a guy.

If you are not a Seattle local, you are still welcome to participate! Just message one of us with your name and address, and we will send the hearts to you! Once they're decorated, just send them back to us by February 5th, and we'll include you in the show!

Please post pics of your completed hearts here or send them to Braden's email: Pics we receive by January 31st will be featured on the flyer!
