Artist Opportunities (NEW)
[call for artists]
In honor of Black History Month on February 25th, 2012, Whole Foods-Ponce de Leon will be hosting an “Black History Night” (Official Name: TBD). We are looking for spoken work poets and visual artists: painters, drawers, sculptures to create a “live” piece of work, in house at Whole Foods. The pieces created or performed should be inspired by black history month or impactful in some way about African American history.
That being said; the creativity is yours; we would like to see what you think should be remembered about black history through your work. All we ask is all pieces are appropriate; no cursing, nudity, or slang/street signs. If you wouldn’t show it or say it to a child we don’t want to see or hear it. For visual artists be aware space will be limited, so make sure you can create this piece on a 50”x30” table. No bigger than an average coffee table. For spoken work artists: Please prepare a piece no longer than 3 minutes.
The great thing about this collaboration, the pieces may be sold to customers in house! A 10% portion of the commissions of sale will go to Whole Plant Foundation. Whole Planet Foundation that works with women in impoverished communities to create or expand a home-based business and gives her the opportunity to bring her and her family out of poverty. Two great causes, on one night!
So if you are interested in coming together for a great cause, email Crystal.Williams@wholefoods.com, with your name, a number where you can be reached and the art form you intend to create, and a little bit about why you want to be involved. I will contact back if you will be chosen to take part in the event! If you have any questions or concerns please contact Crystal.Williams@wholefoods.com.

First Friday Art Walk is a free self-guided tour of the Marietta Square’s galleries, museums, cultural venues, restaurants and businesses on the first Friday of each month, April–October. During Art Walk, each venue hosts an artist. All artistic media are considered. In order to maintain the quality of art, create variety, and facilitate the process for local venues to choose artists, we have streamlined the process and require all artists to submit an application and sample of artwork. All submissions are reviewed by a committee for acceptance or denial. Local venues will be able to choose their artist from those accepted. Please note that you are not guaranteed a spot at each Art Walk. There is no cost to submit.
To submit your work for consideration and to find out more about the submission process, please visit: http://www.geekscall.com/assets/ArtistApplicationArtWalk2013.pdf

WonderRoot Index—Weekly Artists’ Booth @ the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market
This market season, WonderRoot will present a new artist or group of artists to the EAV Farmer’s Market Community each week. The Market is open every Thursday night from 4-8 p.m. beginning on April 19th.
We encourage artists, in taking over the Index for a Thursday evening, to create a unique art experience for passersby: Are they buying made things, making things with you, letting you decorate them, playing a game with you? And so on. Simple is perfect. Grand is perfect. Whatever suits the art or art-purpose you will be sharing.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more and let us know you’re interested. We’ll reserve you a Thursday, and help you make it a successful exhibition of your work in a unique context.
We are also seeking artists to create a few installations (temporary and semi-permanent) at the market site. Come spend time at the market and then pitch a site-specific work to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Music at the Market—WonderRoot’s Music Series @ the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market
Every week starting this Spring, there will be music at the market! WonderRoot is helping to find and gather bands and solo acts, new and old favorites, all genres, all ages, from around Atlanta and beyond.
Acoustic music is preferred to be kind to the market’s neighbors, but power and tents can be made available if your sound is softer but still needs electricity. Bands will be paid $50 ($30 cash, $20 to spend at the market). Interested musicians should send samples of their work to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Music at the Market”. Please indicate dates you are available to perform (Thursdays, 4-8 p.m.) asap, as we are planning a month or so in advance.
