Gay for Eagles

I sent this out to everyone who has contacted me about the show either here, on facebook or via email. I'm posting it here though in case any one hasn't heard yet!

I'll be curating a gallery show of fiber art to be held at the Hotel Hadley Studios in Siler City, NC. The show will open on April 15, 2011 from 6-9pm and will run through May 14.

The title of the show is "Gay for Eagles," based on a military-themed piece by Alexandra Walters. Feel free to interpret this theme broadly (for example, work could in some way engage with themes of war, peace, conflict, paramilitary, black ops, resistance, revolution, etc., possibly as it relates to gender and/or sexuality). I see many possibilities with this theme.

Please confirm your submission to the show by sending me the following information no later than February 18, 2011:
-your name as you would like it to appear in the promotional materials and online
-title of work(s) submitted (up to 5) with all the following information for each piece:
-dimensions (this is very important)
-price if work is for sale (or state if NFS)
-photos of work (or, if you are creating something specifically for this show, a detailed description *with dimensions*).
Once I receive this information from everyone, I can make the final selections of work that will cohere and fit within the space. If your work is selected, I will send you a contract to be completed and submitted when you send me your work. I will ask everyone who is selected to contribute $20 toward the cost of the exhibit, a 15% commission on your sales, and provide a prepaid shipping label back to you.

Please email me at drucillapettibone@gmail.com if you have any questions at all. I appreciate everyone's interest and look forward to putting on an amazing show!
