Local visual artists and art curators are invited to apply for the next WE SHOW opening at WE Labs in Long Beach, California this spring. WE Labs is a collaborative co-work space in Downtown Long Beach. The walls, tabletops, and even the bathrooms of WE Labs are covered with artwork from local artists. It is an inspiring place to work, meet, and discover. The WE SHOW is a rotating art show with a three month showing for artists, private and public art walk tours, and a giant launch gala are free and open to the public. Here are the calls for submissions:
Call for Artists
Our first exhibit represented a cross section of Long Beach’s finest artists, but as you know, Long Beach has a LOT of amazing artists! So, we are extending our cross section theme into WE Show II before focusing on narrower themes. If you would like to be considered for this WE Show II, please see the submission instructions below and submit your art for consideration no later than midnight on March 6th, 2015.
Call for Curators
Both WE Labs and the Arts Council are very much interested in helping further develop a strong curatorial talent pool in Long Beach. With this in mind, we will be selecting guest curators for each of our quarterly WE Show exhibitions in 2015. The Arts Council will be generously supporting this guest curator with a $250.00 stipend.
If you are interested in this opportunity for WE Show II, please submit a cover letter, resume, a biographical statement (250 words or less) and a short (500 words or less) curatorial perspective statement (how you approach art appreciation) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions must be received by March 4th in order to be considered. Guest curators should expect to commit two afternoons or evenings to this work and be available for the WE Show II opening (April 1st) and our monthly Art tours during the second quarter of 2015.
