Who’s exhibiting and opportunities for artists

Call for Art: Re:Birth

Mission Statement:
Re:Birth will be an art exhibition on June 21 and 22 at ISU Design on Main Gallery and Dg’s Tap House in Ames. We are planning to incorporate 2D and 3D visual art, a/v art, installation, digital and analog music composition, spoken word poetry, and live music presentation. Our goal is to provide a new outlet for all interested Central Iowan artists.  Within this community we want to foster a sense of mentorship; to have up-and-coming artists (who may not have access to more well known art forums) present their work alongside their more established peers.  But mostly, we want to facilitate a broad and inclusive conversation about art that will encourage people to contribute as much as they can to the artistic community.
Call for Artists:
We are looking for local visual artists to contribute work for an art show going on in Ames called re:BIRTH 
The visual art portion of the show will be held at the ISU Design on Main Gallery on June 21-22.  It is free to submit and display. We will accept three submissions from each artist anytime before June 16. This is not a juried show, we just want a solid representation of local visual artists.
For submissions, we would appreciate:
Artists name
The price of the work should be included if it is for sale  (pieces will not be insured, and all sales are between the artist and the buyer)
Also include hanging/display specifications if needed (we would appreciate hanging wires on the back of 2D work, but we are open to pieces that need more accommodation)
We want the process of artists contributing to be as informal as possible, so please feel free to contact us at with any questions, concerns, or anything that’s on your mind.
