CALLING ALL ARTISTS - June 2016

Janus Theatre Company is seeking artist submissions for its summer show ShakeScene: The Lunatic, The Lover, The Poet. We are looking for Shakespeare-inspired art for a group show to be held at the Elgin Artspace Gallery. This show will be an interactive celebration showcasing Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream and its enduring popularity.

The show opens Friday, July 15, 2016 from 6pm – 10pm at Elgin Artspace Lofts, 51 South Spring Street, Downtown Elgin, and is part of the Elgin 400 Shakespeare festival, a variety of Shakespeare-inspired events throughout downtown to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the writer’s death.

All applications must be submitted by July 7th, 2016 and include the artist’s name, address, name of art piece, size and price of work, special instructions and medium of artwork.

  • Artists are responsible for their own transactions for any of their art hanging on the wall.

  • Artists keep 100% of the profit.

  • All final art must be framed and/or ready to hang.

  • Artists may submit multiple pieces.

  • If you are submitting a 3-D piece, indicate if you will need a pedestal (we have a limited number)

  • After submitting application, you will receive a confirmation email. Drop off times for final art are Thursday, July 14th, 10am-9pm.

ShakeScene is an exhibit that will be produced in cooperation with Wicked Whimsy Studio to present an experience that celebrates one of Shakespeare’s most iconic plays with a sense of humor and fun. The goal is to offer something informative and fun for people who love Shakespeare, as well as offering an entry way into the world of Shakespeare for those who are not quite sure what they think.
