Our guest curator, Aleksey Volchek, wants to see your art and he wants to hear about your Metamorphosis.
Call for Artists
Our first two exhibits represented a cross section of Long Beach's finest artists. For WE Show III, our focus will narrows to changes, metamorphoses. How have you as an artist adapted to changes in your environment, your world? How have you interpreted changes in our ever evolving city, our ever changing world? How has our greater, shared metamorphosis influenced your art and/or how does your art represent adaptive change?
This WE Show will focus in on three to five individual artists with a perspective representing Metamorphosis. If this is you and you are interested in this tremendous storytelling and exhibition opportunity, please see the submission instructions below and submit your art for consideration no later than noon on July 21st, 2015.
About WE Show and Art Submission Guide
