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: shoeboxsubmissions@gmail.com
Include on each JPEG: Name, title, size, price

No mail-in work. Work must be dropped off in person.

Deadline for submission May 19, 2019 10pm pst

A portion of sales will be donated to the National Eating Disorder Association. https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/
Artist will receive 50% of sales.

We will be promoting the event heavily on social media as well as doing PR. It is going to be an awesome show!!

From womensmarch.com…

“First, we marched. Now we Huddle. We will gather together in our neighborhoods all over the world to define our next steps, and envision how to transform the energy we saw at Women’s Marches into local and national action.

Huddle (n.) – a small group of people holding an informal conversation”

I was part of a recent huddle in Los Angeles. It was an amazing experience to feel like we aren’t alone in our thinking about the current political climate. We talked about what is going on in our country and what we could do to make a difference.

This is one of my next steps. I am curating a mail art show at Shoebox Projects in September 2017.
