Yesterday I saw a facebook post from an old friend about this show that she is entering (6x6x2011 Global) and thought, hey, I should make up a special 6″x6″ format fabric collage to submit. And that is just what I did.
Above is the piece I made especially for the show. I’m still debating on what to call it. What do you think of the title, “Love Me” ?
Think you want to enter this show too? You totally should! You still have some time, the deadline to submit art is May 1, 2011.
Here are some details about the show:
6x6x2011: Global is the fourth exhibition of thousands of original artworks, made and donated by celebrities, international and local artists, designers, college students, youths, and YOU.
Each artwork will be 6×6 square inches and signed only on the back, to be exhibited anonymously. All artworks will be for sale to the public for $20 each to benefit Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo). Artist names will be revealed to the buyer only upon purchase and all works will remain on display for the duration of the exhibition.
Beginning July 1st, the names of artists whose work has completely sold out will be revealed online next to their artwork(s). The 6x6x2011 Online Gallery will be available (www.roco6x6.org) for previewing on May 28th and global online purchasing will begin June 6 at 10am.
6x6x2011 is an exhibition with a twist. It tests the viewers’ ability to identify famous artists’ work. The exhibition also challenges everyone to support the arts by buying what you like, regardless of the signature! Anyone may enter their artwork to be part of this amazing show!
Last year’s exhibition included over 5,000 artworks by 2,000 artists from 43 US states and 22 countries! Over 7,000 people attended 6x6x2010 and over 1,700 artworks have been purchased!
