Description

The Maple Valley Creative Arts Council is delighted to invite artists, designers, and even those who may not consider themselves traditional artists to submit design proposals for an exciting new mural project. This mural will be prominently displayed at the Maple Valley Historical Society, and we are thrilled to open up this opportunity to creative minds from all walks of life.

We are calling for submissions that will transform the two sides of the Historical Society building into a captivating visual narrative. The primary goal of this mural is to educate and engage the community by depicting the rich history of Maple Valley and the legacy of the Maple Valley Historical Society itself.

The ideal mural should be representational, offering a clear and vivid portrayal of historical events and figures. It should also evoke a sense of nostalgia, with a realistic vintage aesthetic that pays homage to the past. Included in the design should be some of the images provided in the accompanying photo packet, which serve as key historical references.

The artwork must be crafted using materials and techniques that ensure durability and longevity in an outdoor environment. This means utilizing exterior paints or other suitable processes that can withstand the elements and preserve the integrity of the mural for years to come.

We encourage you to bring your unique perspective and creative flair to this project, helping us celebrate and commemorate the vibrant history of Maple Valley.

Description

ArtsWest seeks artists of ALL AGES to exhibit their artwork in the C-shaped Gallery that is also the lobby of the theater. It is the mission at ArtsWest to produce artistic events that provoke conversation, incite the imagination, and use live theater as a powerful agent of change. We are seeking artwork that enhances our 2024 - 2025 theater season entitled The Family of Things.

APPLICATION: By applying to be in this exhibit, you agree to the terms and conditions stated in this form.

Email the following (or mail equivalent):
1. Completed Information form to: Corinne Park-Buffelen corinnep@artswest.org
2. Attach up to 6 Hi Res JPEG files of artwork or please provide a link to your portfolio or website.

LENGTH OF EXHIBITS: Exhibits run concurrently with our theater production dates – ensuring that both our visual art and theater performances play to clean spaces and maximum audiences. The length of these exhibits vary between 4-7 weeks in length.

SIZE RESTRICTIONS: We do not restrict the size of the artwork as long as it can be safely displayed.We have a STAS gallery hanging system so work must be able to be mounted on a STAS hook.
It is possible to dedicate a small space for ceramics and sculpture. No video installations.

GALLERY: Located inside ArtsWest, 4711 California Ave. SW, Seattle WA, our Gallery consists of 100 linear feet in a C-shaped configuration. Hours: Thursday – Saturday from
2 - 7PM and Sundays from 11AM to 3PM.

SUBJECT MATTER:
We are a professional theatre and gallery in West Seattle. Our goal is to marry what is on stage and what is in the gallery to allow our community to experience the themes, ideas, and cultural identities through 2 mediums: visual art & performance. This is not to say that the visual art should draw direct parallels to the theatrical productions, but inherently compliments it through the programming of the gallery.

SEASON 2024 – 2025 : THE FAMILY OF THINGS:
“Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting– over and over announcing your place in the family of things.” – Mary Oliver, Wild Geese
Mary Oliver is beloved as one of the great poets of the natural world. Throughout her life, she gave us messages in bottles about how we might find our place here, asking questions like “Who am I?” and “Where do I belong?” Finding answers to these questions can seem like an impossible quest, but in Wild Geese, Mary Oliver gives us a place to start: “You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.“

This season is about some humans, the softest animals, striving to let themselves and each other love, which, as Mary shows us, is the only path to belonging. Through it all, we’ll hold the hope that love will show us the path to belonging and allow us each to find our place in the family of things.

For more than twenty years, we have been showcasing how music, film, fashion, video games, sports, and more spark those connections and create a lasting cultural impact.

MoPOP provides both a physical space and an emotional and intellectual opportunity for people from any background to explore, find and build community, and recognize their own creative potential. This applies not only to our guests, but also to our staff — be it in designing an educational program to engage the next generation of creators, trying to reach a new audience with a marketing initiative, preserving an artifact in our collection, or providing excellent customer service to a visitor. If this sounds like something you’d be into, we’d love to hear from you!

MoPOP’s Mission and Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility
Our mission is to make creative expression a life-changing force by offering experiences that inspire and connect our communities. A nonprofit grounded in five core values — open arms, creative exchanges, light bulb moments, pursuing excellence, and excitement — MoPOP is actively committed to ongoing learning in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA). In partnership with our community, we hope to also develop safe spaces for their application. This includes taking steps to continue increasing our awareness of institutional “-isms,” as well as uncovering and undoing the ways they show up in museum culture. We recognize this is a process that requires intentionality, energy, and resources, and we are developing a DEIA framework that can cultivate a work environment and museum experience that is truly welcoming for all.

We are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace, and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We believe that having staff, interns, and volunteers with diverse backgrounds enables us to better meet our mission and encourage BIPOC, women, and LGBTQIA+ individuals to apply. We acknowledge that our work to build safe spaces and better systems for traditionally marginalized groups is ongoing and will require constant vigilance and expect all MoPOP employees to be part of our DEIA journey.

Please do not enter if you cannot drop off and pick up your work at Graphite on these dates and during these times. You may have another person pick up or drop off your art for you. Graphite has limited open hours and accommodating requests for alternate pick up dates makes additional work for our staff and volunteers.

Presentation and Framing
Please consider the presentation of your art (i.e. framing, matting, mounting, cleaning, etc.) prior to dropping off at Graphite.
Reminder - there are only two weeks between notification of acceptance in show and art drop off.
Proper framing is very important.
The gallery can not exhibit works that are improperly or poorly framed. Framed works must have proper wiring for the weight of the work (saw tooth hangers, glass clip framing, and frames with cardboard stands on the back are not accepted).
Please do not use eye-hook screws which stick out on the back of your frame as these will scratch our walls.
All quality framing and matting choices will be accepted if the artwork has been accepted, but plain white/off-white mats and plain black frames are recommended/preferred.
Frames should be clean with no nicks.
If special hardware is required for installation, please include this with the art at drop off.
3D works will be displayed on pedestals.
For this show specifically, works on actual doors may be entered. Doors will be leaned against gallery walls unless another display method is imagined and can be accommodated. Please communicate directly with the gallery director with questions.
Graphite aims to always present high-quality exhibitions with professional-level presentation. Works should look clean, finished and as professional as possible.

The Curator has the right to reject any work based on its presentation after drop-off if it is deemed unacceptable.
