Call for Artists – Sinners & Saints Art Show
Sinful Retreat and Angel’s Rest is organizing Sinners & Saints – their first themed art show – which will be opening on July 10th! Submit your artworks by June 26th to be featured in this grand display of art!
This art show is open to everyone. The theme is “Sinners & Saints” with a 200 prim limit per artwork, and limited to two entries per artist – one light/good and the other dark/evil. You may submit 2D art, 3D art, or poetry on a prim. The goal is to represent a broad cross section of the SL art community. All entries must be submitted by Saturday, June 26th.
In the wake of the UWA Gratitude Art Show back in November which Chuck Clip curated alongside Mariposa Upshaw, Sinful Retreat and Angels Rest decided to carry UWA’s torch onward into the future in the form of occasional themed art shows. Mariposa has once again been dragged kicking and screaming out of retirement to curate with Chuck again for this – the first themed art show at Sinful Retreat.
Why The Theme “Sinners & Saints”?
Sinful Retreat and Angels Rest are mirrors for each other, highlighting the dichotomy of light and dark in art and humanity as a whole. Hence it is indeed appropriate that the first art show reflect just that. Despite the terminology, you need not think in terms of Christianity. Sure, you could pick one of the seven deadly sins (Pride, Greed, Wrath, Envy, Lust, Gluttony, or Sloth) or virtues (Prudence, Justice, Temperance, Courage, Faith, Hope, or Charity) but the team does not wish to lock you into that in any way.
All are welcome at Sinful Retreat and Angel’s Rest, so if you are Buddist, Muslim, Jewish, Taoist, a Reiki Master, a member of the Church of Satan, whatever your belief system, or lack there of; submit two pieces, each representing your interpretation of the sides. All that is asked from you is one piece for each side. In the event that you only wish to represent one side, please discuss this with Chuck Clip or Mariposa Upshaw, as single entries will be limited to strike a balance.
A casual viewer should be able to interpret the artwork entered as being representative of the theme. Where the link to the theme is difficult to ascertain, this should be referenced in a NC accompanying the work.
Artworks may be 2D, 3D or Poetry on a prim.
There is a 200 land impact limit per piece.
2 entries per artist (one good/light and one evil/dark; please confirm single submissions with Chuck Clip or Mariposa Upshaw)
DEADLINE: Saturday, June 26, 2021
OPENING: July 10th, 2021
The art show will remain for three months, after which, pieces may be cycled in and out as part of the overall environment of the sims.
