Call for Artists: One Pride, Two Art Shows!



June is coming and we are bursting at the seams with pride! St. Pete Pride is just around the corner and we are celebrating with two shows in one night. That's right, there's so much pride it cannot be contained under one roof so I'm curating sister-shows across the street from one another, hosted by Cider Press Café and The Emerald Bar.
You won't want to miss out on these celebrations.

PRIDE WITHOUT PREJUDICE
The Cider Press Cafe, St. Pete and curator John Gascot invite Tampa Bay artists to submit entries for their upcoming exhibit Pride Without Prejudice. 
This group exhibit celebrates the vast diversity of the St. Pete/Tampa Bay community. We invite artists (LGBTQ and Allies) to submit expressions and depictions celebrating LGBTQ Pride as well as gender, orientation and racial equality. Keyword: DIVERSITY!
Eligible Tampa bay area artists may submit up to 5 quality images (at least 500x500 and no larger than 1000x1000 pixels) of available works. Each entry should measure no less than 6" x 6". There is no size limit and medium to larger works are encouraged and welcome. Medium to smaller (easy to travel with) works are also encouraged as the exhibit will run during St. Pete's Pride festivities, which attract large number of tourists. All work must be properly wired and ready to hang upon delivery.


Pride Without Prejudice will run from June 4, 2018 through July 1, 2018. Commission split is 30%,with 70% to the artist. Please submit images along with Title/Medium/Size info for each to: jgascot@gascot.com
Submission deadline: Friday, May 25.
Acceptance emails will be sent by Monday, May 28.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 9, 6-9 pm.
