National bicycle art party ARTCRANK is coming to Seattle for the first time this year, and they are looking for Seattle artists to get involved and submit posters.
ARTCRANK is a show of bicycle-inspired poster artwork that introduces people to talented local artists and sends them home with affordable, original works of art. Since our 2007 debut in Minneapolis, we’ve held shows in bike-lovin’ cities like Portland, San Francisco, New York, Austin, Los Angeles and London. And this year, we’re finally coming to Seattle. As of now, we’re deep in negotiations with a prospective venue, and won’t be announcing a show date until we have a final agreement. But in order to have a poster show, we need poster artists.
CALL FOR ARTISTS: We are now accepting artist submissions for our 2013 show. Please note that we have a strict locals-only policy, and will only consider artists who live and work in the greater Seattle area.
To be considered for the show, send three digital samples of previous art and design work (URLs, JPGs, PDFs, etc.) to us via email.
While we definitely look for experience with screen-printing, letterpress and other craft printing techniques, your samples do not need to be posters and/or bike-related — just work that shows your skills and style. Please do not submit proposed/spec poster designs — only artists who are selected for the show will be asked to create new work.
The Call for Entries will close on Saturday, April
