CAC call for artists

Passing this along:

The Contemporary Arts Center is now accepting submissions of work for East Side Projects, rotating monthly two-week projects in the gallery’s front window space facing Charleston Boulevard.  This is an ongoing call open to contemporary artists working in any media.  Site-specific work for the space is also encouraged.  Artists must be current CAC members (defined as dues-paying members starting at the $25 level) in order to be eligible for consideration.  To become a member visit or contact the gallery.  We encourage artists to visit the gallery to see the space.  Please note that the window receives a generous dose of Las Vegas sunshine.

Our first call honors Las Vegas Pride 2010 and will coincide with Pride events scheduled for downtown. The mission of Pride is to “…….to educate the community by invoking, promoting, 
and celebrating lesbian/gay/bisexual/
transgender pride.”  We are seeking work informed by a queer aesthetic that explores identity, gender and sexuality and supports the Pride mission statement.   The following events are scheduled for April: Artrageous Vegas Art Extravaganza, AFAN’s AIDS WALK Las Vegas, April 25th.  Annual Pride Night Parade is April 30th and  Pride 2010 Festival May 1st.

Submissions must include a proposal, current CV/resume, artist bio/statement, disc with JPG images of original artwork (1 MB or less please) and image reference sheet (including artist, title, media, dimensions, and filename).  Send SASE for return.
