Call For Artists

The 60/40 Series presents: Outspoken, a benefit for BikePGH

Our goal is to inspire and subsequently tap into the creativity of local artists in accordance with Bike Pittsburgh’s vision of establishing our city as increasingly safe, accessible, and friendly to bicycle transportation. All art work that results from the culmination of our collective efforts will be displayed and offered for sale to the public at large during the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Spring Gallery Crawl on April 29, 2011. Outspoken will be taking place in a space donated to us by the Trust at 805/807 Liberty Avenue in the heart of the Cultural District. Proceeds from all art sales will be split between the individual artists and BikePGH, 60/40, respectively.

Call for submissions: We are seeking contributions of original works of two- and three- dimensional design. Artists may submit up to 4 pieces, of which 1 must be bicycle themed. Limited series prints are also welcomed. Show space will be designated on a first submitted, first placed basis. All submissions will be previewed as they arrive and offered for sale online at http://www.sixtyfortyseries.com leading up to the show on April 29th, 2011.

Deadline for commitment to the Outspoken show is April 14th, 2011, by which point a description of the proposed submission with accompanying .jpg/sketch/draft along with name, email, and phone # should be sent to: submissions@sixtyfortyseries.com

Deadline for submissions to Outspoken is April 21st, 2011. Framed, finished works, fully ready to be hung and/or displayed should be delivered to the location as indicated in the commitment email.

The 60/40 Series is curated by Ben Smith, Kelly Carter, and Dave Baach, all of whom can be reached at submissions@sixtyfortyseries.com

For more information on our beneficiary, Bike Pittsburgh, please visit their website at http://www.Bike-PGH.org

Our show on April 29, 2011 is the first in a series of benefit art sales the 60/40 Series intends to hold on behalf of local advocacy groups and non-profits working to better the community we call home. Pittsburgh.

We look forward to your participation.

Seeing interest from crafters early on, jewelry makers, ceramic artists, and knitters/clothing designers in particular. We’re definitely interested in work of that nature, and your contributions are most definitely welcomed.

Thanks for clarifying, spinballer! I missed that bit of info the first time around, and 60/40 is a common split in the fine arts world, with the gallery getting the larger chunk.

This sounds like a great project!

It goes without saying there should be a ride to this from Dippy.

You may have thought of this but you should definitely grab a parking space out front and make a mini art PARK like PARK-ing day. Artparking.

And a bike corral.

dj kevin/SPAM_ONE/Kevin Graham

he had a Sesame Inn menu on his fridge with the yin yang lookin fish logo… I mentioned that since we were thinking of a round flyer maybe a play on the symbol would be cool. Immediately he started talking about using Penny Farthing’s, wheels to wheels, to accomplish the effect. I left while he was tinkering with that, and the next day what you see is what he’d come up with. Cooking up a flipside too, stay tuned.
