Blue Line issues call to artists

‘Art in Public Places’ applications open
-A +A

Blue Line Arts has announced a new “Art in Public Places” program, created to give the Roseville community more exposure to the visual arts. Blue Line has partnered with the Roseville Civic Center, Paramount Equity Mortgage, the Downtown Roseville Library and Sutter Roseville Medical Center to provide ongoing art exhibitions featuring established and emerging local artists.

Each venue has varying amounts of artwork they are able to display. Two-dimensional work needed includes 20-30 pieces for the Roseville Civic Center, four to five pieces for Paramount Equity Mortgage, 10-20 pieces for the Downtown Roseville Library and 10-20 pieces for Sutter Roseville Medical Center.

To enter work, artists should upload up to eight (additional images accepted for $5 each) quality photos that they feel are the best representation of their artwork. The photos submitted do not have to be of the artworks the artist plans on displaying; rather they are used to get an idea of the artist’s style.

Acceptable entry file types are jpg, gif, bmp, png and pdf. Maximum file size is 3 mb; minimum file size is 10kb. Images must be at least 150 pixels wide.

Only two-dimensional artwork will be considered. Open to artists at least 18 years old who are members of Blue Line. Visit www.rosevillearts.org/support/signup3.html for more information about memberships. Open to local and regional artists. Artists must be able to bring artworks in person to the venue. Blue Line is unable to accept shipped artwork. Artwork must be appropriate for a public venue (i.e., no nudity or religious or political references).

There is a $25 entry fee for members and non-members of Blue Line. Artists will be prompted after submitting artwork to pay this entry fee via Paypal or over the phone. Along with the submission of photos of your artwork, artists should note to which venue they are applying (may apply to more than one venue), and include a current resume. Submissions will be reviewed once a month. Submit artwork by the 15th of every month.

Artists may apply once a year for the “Art in Public Places” program. Submission will be kept on file for one year. Artwork will be accepted on a rolling basis. A representative from Blue Line will contact the artists if their artwork has been selected for display.
