Call for Artists from Girls Gotta Run Foundation, Inc.

The Phoenix Gallery in NYC has invited the Foundation to mount an exhibit in their Project Room from September 5 thru September 29, 2007. This will also be “Fashion Week” in New York and the beginning of the art season.

The Phoenix Gallery is the oldest co-op run gallery in NY. It is located in the heart of the Chelsea art district. There are two main galleries and the Project room. All three spaces, which open into each other, will have an opening reception on September 6. Artists from the Phoenix Gallery will also be invited to participate, if they choose.

The Project Room is a small space, approximately 12’ x 12’ x 12’, therefore we are asking that “smaller” works no more than 20” x 20” be submitted for consideration. Small sculptures can be accommodated also. The art works will be hung salon style and will be sold “cash and carry” so that new works may replace others as they are sold. As people seem to buy art “on impulse” up to about $300, we would prefer most pieces to be priced at $300 or less. At least 50% of the sales price goes to the Foundation, but the Phoenix Gallery will not take any commission. The works should feature or be about shoes, but be creative. They don’t have to be representational.

The show will be listed in Gallery Guide of NYC, on the Phoenix Gallery web site, and on, that can link back to the GGRF home page and your images on our site. The GGRF Shoe Art Gallery also links to the artists’ own web sites.

Up to two (2) works per artist, up to 20” x 20” If framed, done professionally, marked with title, price, medium. At least 50% of sales goes to GGRF.

Work to be shipped or delivered between July 17 - August 3. The gallery is closed from August 4 – September 3. Final selection and hanging will be done by the Phoenix and GGRF on September 4.

Exhibit Dates: September 5 – September 29, 2007
Opening Reception: September 6, 2007 6 – 8 p.m.

If you are shipping by Fed-Ex or UPS, please note when the gallery is open on the shipping information: Tues – Sat 11:30 – 6 p.m. and include the Gallery phone no.

Phoenix Gallery, 210 Eleventh Ave @ 10th St, Suite 902, NY, NY 10001
