Hot opportunity


Kutztown University’s Sharadin Art Gallery Director Dan Talley sent me this open call listing which sounds like a great opportunity. Artists in Philadelphia, Reading, Allentown and surrounding areas are eligible to apply.

The show’s called Torrid and it’ll explore the notion of extreme heat — both physical and psychological. Talley’s looking for all variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, installation, and new media works. Literalists and metaphoricals sought here. If you make work that’s hot or that’s about hot, this show’s for you. Here’s more information.

Deadline for submissions: October 1, 2004. For more information email

If you don’t know the gallery, I’ve been there. It’s a nice big space. The show I saw included several large sculptural installations along with more intimate scale sculpture and paintings and the space handled it well.
