Dear Tacoma Artists,

This is an important update to our previous announcement regarding the Canvas
Art Collective, a new initiative proudly presented by Energize Tacoma. This
collective aims to celebrate and support Tacoma's vibrant artistic
community by creating a shared space where diverse talents can be displayed
and appreciated.

About Canvas Art Collective:

Canvas Art Collective https://www.energizetacoma.org/canvasartcollective
embodies the essence of a shared artistic space. It symbolizes
collaboration, creativity, and the rich tradition of visual art. Our goal
is to bring together a diverse array of artworks that represent the unique
voices and visions of Tacoma's local artists.

What We're Looking For:

  • Wall Art: We are seeking wall art pieces in various styles and mediums to
    be displayed throughout the studio.

  • Permanent Exhibition: Unlike rotating exhibitions, all selected pieces
    will be part of a permanent collective display, providing long-term
    exposure for the artists.

  • High Visibility: Your artwork will be prominently featured in the
    high-traffic Painting Panda Pottery Studio, which welcomes hundreds of
    visitors each week, offering significant opportunities for exposure and
    sales.

  • Extended Display: Artwork will remain on display until it is sold or
    until the artist decides to reclaim it.

Benefits:

  • Sales Opportunities: Artists will retain the majority of the proceeds
    from any artwork sold. Sales can be made in cash or through digital payment
    methods such as Venmo, PayPal, Square, etc. Once payment is verified by The
    Painting Panda Pottery Studio staff will the artwork be provided to the
    customer.

  • Nominal Wall Fee: A small fee of 10% of the sale price will be charged to
    cover administrative costs and ensure the smooth operation of the
    collective. This fee is crucial as it helps Energize Tacoma expand the
    Canvas Art Collective program and fund advertising for the exhibit.

  • Community Engagement: Be a part of a dynamic community of artists and
    engage with art enthusiasts and potential buyers.

Selection Process:

  • Steering Committee: Artwork will be selected by our steering committee.
    Due to limited space, not every piece or artist can be displayed.

  • Notification: If chosen, we will send you an email stating which of your
    pieces have been selected.

Submission Guidelines:

If you're interested in joining the Canvas Art Collective, please submit
the following:

  1. Artist Statement or Bio: A brief description of yourself and your
    artistic journey.

  2. Images of Artwork: High-quality images of your wall art pieces
    (preferably in JPEG format).

  3. Portfolio Links: Any relevant social media or online portfolio links.

Please email your submissions to energizetacoma@gmail.com by June 21, 2024,
midnight.

Please Note: Space is limited, and the work you submit should be artwork
that you are willing to have stationary in one place for a long time.

We are also excited to announce that we have now set up our organization's
website: Energize Tacoma http://www.energizetacoma.org. Please visit our
site for more information about our programs and initiatives.

Join us in creating a vibrant, collective art space that celebrates the
rich tapestry of Tacoma's artistic talent. We look forward to receiving
your submissions and collaborating with you to enrich our community through
art.

Warm regards,

Herschel Wilson
