Calling all artists!
Evolution is hosting an evening of events for the first night of the South End Art Hop on Friday, September 6th and we are looking for community members who would like to participate in this year’s event! We are looking for:
- 10+ artists to showcase their work around the studio. These artists would be featured in our program with a bio and description of their pieces. Deadline for bio’s are July 6th, so please let us know ASAP if you are interested in being one of our featured artists!
- Sculpture and/or jewelry artists. We don’t charge artists and they can be listed in our group show for free, so it’s a great opportunity!
- Performance artists to perform between live music set breaks. In the past we have had fire dancers, belly dancers, and a hula hoop performance troupe. We are hoping to coordinate a similar schedule this year. There will be a 30-minute time slot around 8-8:30 available for a performance, and likely another slot earlier. Please let us know if you are interested!
- A Henna artist or facepainter. We would love to have one of these! You can charge your own rate and set up in our event space.
- A photo booth or a photographer interested in creating a photo zone for the event.
- An artist to facilitate/lead/co-create an art project for the community to participate in! Past projects included paint by numbers, candle making, collages, and a community mandala. I think it would be great to have an herbal station, where people can learn to make a tincture, salve or something of the sort! We can pay artists to run a 2-3 hour station from 6-8 or 9pm.
If you are interested or have recommendations, please email event’s coordinator Kayla@evolutionvt.com with links or attachments of artwork samples/ videos/etc. Thank you!
