Low brow pop art group show in hollywod on october 1st 2009.

So, I have a cool spot in Hollywood that is letting me do some shows. The place is cool, and I'm really trying to convince the owners to make it a full fledged art gallery. Well, for the next several months, I'll be organizing some shows for myself and for several different groups and artists. Please come by and check it out, along with this months show.

Here are the filers for the show. :) Also look it up on art slant.

reminder to the participating artists, deadline to turn in work is September 28th.

Open call to artist for our next show!!!

Greetings esteemed comrade and fellow artist.

Curator and artist Leftyjoe, would like to formally invite you to participate in the 3rd installment of "Mawnstirrs and Rowboughts" at a new location that will soon rise in the underground art world and hopefully become an esteemed art Gallery.

Our year long show "Mawnstirrs and Rowboughts" or also known as "Monsters and Robots" is a group art show featuring some of California's Promising artists, some well established names and some undiscovered talent.

Our show pays homage to the two most influential icons of human culture. The world over, people dream and fear the denizens of the imagination, Monsters and Robots.
We'll be inviting you to show us your perception and interpretation of either subject. Choose any character or concept you want. Your pieces can be parodies, homages, or tributes to any known or personally original character.
There is no limit this time on what you can submit.

No sculptures nor digital work will be allowed.

Please make all submitted work wall ready. (meaning completely ready to hang)

Attach the art release sheet and contract to the back of your piece with the following information
-name of artist
-title of artwork
-date executed
-value of art
(Disclaimer) Be advised, based on research, the value of fine art has significantly dropped, due to the economic crisis. On the other hand 'Pop art' is becoming more popular because it's less expensive, so just be price conscious. Thank you.

For submissions:
Contact Curator Leftyjoe : 626-623-9757

Send images of pieces for submission or send a brief description of the work you will submit. All are welcome, I just want to see that everyone is on the same page regarding the theme of the show.

There will be a one time $20.00 submission fee to new artists entering work into the show.
(If you are a previous member, and will be hanging the work from the past shows, no fee is required, however, if you are a member bringing new work, the fee applies. Make checks payable to Joe Torres. Cash will be accepted.)
