Call for Art in Detroit

For artists who are interested in finding out more about art in Detroit and possibly exhibiting there, here is a great opportunity: Hatch Art has just issued a call for entries to  Hatchback, an annual juried group show. The juror is Chido Johnson, Associate Professor at the College for Creative Studies and there is no fee. Hatch is a well respected non-profit gallery and studio space. Like most Detroit art venues, the gallery is open for limited hours but it is clean, well-lit, professionally run, and has a strong following within the city’s arts community. The deadline for entry is March 3.

I showed my work at Hatchback 8 last year, and it resulted in an invitation to show more extensively in TABLEAU: Hardin, Letts, Schaedig, currently on view until February 28.  The gallery is open this Saturday 1-6 and I will be on hand if anyone wants to come and scope it out.
