Treebute is a Tribute to the Trees. Trees are the lungs of our planet. We have recently learned that trees communicate and cooperate with each other using their network of roots.* How do you feel about our trees? Let's honor them with this Treebute!
Squeeze Art Collective is curating the art component of The Green Prize Festival again for 2017. It will be held on Earth Day - Saturday, April 22. Because this festival is sustainability focused, we appreciate all efforts to create works on found objects (planks of wood in the alley, old furniture you were planning to throw away, etc) to reduce our impact on the planet.
ELIGIBILITY AND RESTRICTIONS: The call is open to all artists in the Long Beach and surrounding areas. The work must be tree themed. All forms of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, graphics, digital and installation art, video, etc. are eligible. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older to apply.
EXHIBITION: Chosen artists will be featured in a group exhibition at The Green Prize Festival at Houghton Park, Long Beach on Saturday, April 22nd. The exhibition will also be displayed on the Squeeze Art Collective web site, Facebook page, Instagram, and YouTube Channel.
EXHIBITION TERMS: All works in the show must be for sale. The Collective will take a 40 percent commission* on all sales. Work must be priced at $50 or above.
*Subscribing Squeeze Artist Members get a reduced commission of 20 percent. Join us to get that rate.
NO ENTRY FEES: There is no entry fee.
WALL RENTAL: Each wall has 4x4' display area and is overall 6'x4'. Rent a wall here.
DISPLAY: Artists may display as many pieces as will fit on a 4x4' wall space. All hanging works must be able to hang on a nail and must come with appropriate hanging hardware to the weight of the piece (i.e., there must be a wire on the back of your painting, plus it has to come with hanging hardware.)
IMAGE USE / COPYRIGHTS: Artist retains all copyrights to submitted images and represented artwork. By entering the show, artists selected to exhibit grant Squeeze Art Collective rights to use the selected image(s) on printed materials, social media, and the Collective’s web site for promotional purposes only. Squeeze Art Collective and Roxanne’s Latin Bar and Grill retain no copyrights or usage rights outside of promoting the artists and their work.
NOTIFICATION: Artists will be notified of acceptance or non-acceptance no later than April 15, 2017 at midnight. Notification will be made via email.
LIABILITY WAIVER: Because Houghton Park is not primarily a gallery, we have to operate in an "at the artist's discretion" policy. As a public park, the art will be near beverages and the public. Although we will take the highest care in your work, utilizing all our resources to promote and sell your art, making sure that it is taken care of, we unfortunately can't be held responsible if anything were to happen to it. We are not a primary functioning gallery and don't have the insurance to cover any theft or damage. If you have any questions or concerns about it, we are open to dialogue and suggestions.
DEADLINE: The final entry deadline is April 14th, 2017. Entries must be submitted via email by this date.
Deadline to fill out the submission form is Friday, April 14th at midnight.
