Call for Art: Petrified Forest Gallery (London, ON)
The Petrified Forest Gallery is a new space in London, Ontario dedicated to presenting work by emerging or obscure artists. In particular, we are interested in things which do not normally get much play in galleries such as erotica, work with highly questionable or disquieting political implications, examinations of rural life, images of adolescence, things you probably shouldn’t actually show people, obsolescence and crude painting. We are a small, zero budget, non-funded, non-commercial gallery which seeks to make work available to a broader audience.
Sound and video works, photography, text pieces, miniatures, textiles, works on paper or board are encouraged, but basically anything which you can mail and we can mail back is welcome. Various collections of unusual objects and artifacts will also be considered.
If you are interested in showing with us, please send us a note about the work you would like to exhibit along with a link to your website, or a copy of your CV accompanied by some medium resolution images. You can email your submissions as well as any burning questions that you have to thepetrifiedforestgallery@
