Call for Art: The Rub of Green

1 lb. Gallery Invites You to Submit Your Images to:
“The Rub of the Green”
A Call for Photography Entries

Submission Deadline: Saturday, February 1st 2014

The month of March, in my mind – has always been the calendar’s “green” month. I mean, for starters it plays host to the green-themed holiday St Patrick’s Day, but not long after that – Spring officially arrives, and although here on the east coast of the U.S., things don’t start to really green up until April is well under way – the first signs of tender, new baby plant growth do begin to make a welcome appearance right at the tail end of March.

The color green signifies life, and luck (on the positive end of the spectrum), but it can also connote less favorable qualities like sickness, immaturity, inexperience and envy. And on top of all that, green also happens to be my most favorite color!

For the March Exhibition – 1 lb. Gallery asks that you submit images in which the color green is featured as much or as little, and in whatever fashion you like. Obviously, this is a very loosely themed call for submissions, and with so few confines limiting you – I hope (selfishly) and expect (eagerly) to see green represented in a myriad of different ways…

One Entrant will receive the “Juror’s Choice Award”, and will be the featured artist on the 1 lb. website for the month of March, 2014, as well as the special guest at the “The Rub of the Green” Opening Night & Artist’s Reception” on March 7th, 2014. “Juror’s Choice Award” winners who are unable to attend the exhibition’s Opening Night, have the option of, and are encouraged to Skype with attendees of the event, over the course of the evening. The “Juror’s Choice Award” winner will also receive an archival 8.5″ x 11″ giclee print of one of their images.

Up to 35 images will be chosen from the submissions, and will be on display in the “The Rub of the Green” Exhibition at 1 lb. Gallery from March 5th, – March 29th, 2014. Winning images will also appear on the 1 lb. website, and will be made available for online purchases.
