Let Me Eat Cake, Too!!
We’re coming back for seconds!!!!
On view during the Blue Roof Studios Arts Festival June 22nd (special preview June 20th)
Deadline for submissions May 19, 2019 10pm pst
After our very popular exhibition last July at PØST at the Bendix Building, “Let Me Eat Cake Too” will be on view at Blue Roof Studios during their Arts Festival in June.
Curator, Kristine Schomaker is looking for more luscious, yummy desserty art to share with the community.
“I have always loved the Baroque and Rococo. This show may be a celebration of food, the sustenance of life but it also has an underlying current of how food is used for comfort as I am discovering while working through a life of disordered eating.
“Let me eat cake” may be an homage to those who are able to overcome adversity. It may be sweetness overload or a diabetic coma. It may be a commentary on the state of the U.S. Right now. It may be just a way to bring together many friends and celebrate the life we are able to live in Los Angeles.”
We are accepting all-media. Please no larger than 36×36 inches. We would love to include performance artists this time around. We are accepting proposals for both Thursday preview and Saturday Arts Festival dates. Must be family friendly. (3D work must have shelf or pedestal)
Please email up to three high res images for consideration to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Include on each JPEG: Name, title, size, price
No mail-in work. Work must be dropped off in person.
