Call for Art

Below is a call for art from Holly Elkins, the Gallery’s curator.

“’Til All Are Fed”
The Gallery at National Avenue,
1515 S. National Ave., Springfield, MO

PROSPECTUS
The Gallery at National Avenue, a gallery committed to social justice and community outreach, presents “’Til All Are Fed” an art exhibit to benefit Ozarks Food Harvest, opening September 30, 2011.

Founded in 1983, Ozarks Food Harvest reaches more than 155,000 individuals and distributes 8.5 million pounds of food annually. For every $1 donated, The Food Bank provides $10 worth of food distribution.

The Gallery at National Avenue’s June exhibit, “Art for Haiti,” saw sells of over $3,000 in art and allowed us to donate approximately $1,000 to Community Coalition for Haiti. We hope to do even better for Ozarks Food Harvest.

We are looking for both 2-D and 3-D original art of all styles and medium that speaks to the theme of “’Til All Are Fed”… harvest, bounty, hunger, food, etc., both representational and abstract. You are limited only by your imagination.
