Washington Gallery is looking for funny, silly, sappy, quirky, corny, odd, goofy and peculiar musings on love and romance in the form of visual, written or fine art for a show opening Feb. 14 entitled “My Funny Valentine.” The deadline is Feb. 7.
The theme for the art show is inspired by a popular jazz standard written by Rodgers & Hart in 1937 for the musical Babes in Arms: “My funny valentine / My sweet comic valentine / You make me smile with my heart / Your looks are laughable / Unphotographable / Yet you’re my favorite work of art.”
1. Artist’s statement
2. Brief bio (2-3 sentences)
3. One to six pieces (PDF, JPG, MOV, or AVI format)
4. Description of piece (title, medium, dimensions, price)
5. Subject line: My Funny Valentine
All mediums accepted (if video you must provide your own materials and machinery). Pieces must be ready to hang. In most cases, that means eye screws and hanging wire. Pedestals are available for sculpture or other smaller 3D objects.
Submissions must be received via e-mail by Feb. 7. Artwork will be selected by members of the Washington Gallery Committee and selected artists will schedule appointments will the Gallery Committee for drop-off by no later than Feb. 11. Absolutely no physical artwork will be accepted after Feb. 11.
