Call for Art Work:The Odd Salon

Please forward this to your artist friends.

Somewhat in keeping with the spirit of the season, the Exhibition at PaperWorkers Local for October's Third Friday will be "The Odd Salon." Rather than things Halloween-ish, we're looking for a wider range of odd, strange, unsettling, creepy, surreal and so on. You may not think of your work in this way, but keep in mind that being put in context with odder things can sometimes pull more straight laced work in another direction.

At the title suggests, this is going to be a salon style show. So, we'd like to have a good number of works up.

If you'd like to contribute work on or of paper give us a idea of what you have in mind in an email to Include "Odd Salon" in the subject line.

Work should be dropped at the shop on Monday Oct 14 after 1:00 pm. We'll hang the show on Monday - Wednesday and the opening will be on Friday the 18th.

We ask that in the event of a sale the artist make a donation of 20% to PaperWorkers Local.
