Prime - the art and lives of senior artists

Artists who are over 65 from anywhere in the world are invited to send an image of one artwork (any medium, any size, any date) and also one recent pic of themselves doing whatever it is that they do, which may or may not be what is expected from someone over 65!
(Don't use a photo taken before your 65th birthday, O.K.?)
All work will be exhibited on the Virtual Tart website during October 2008.

12 of the works will be selected (viewers can vote) and a 2009 calendar will be printed using those images (and the images of the artists).

All participants will receive a calendar.

Note: because of the shape and size of the calendar horizontal-format images will suit better.

(You can see the images chosen for the similar Global Artists for Peace calendar here.



A list of those artists who will be taking part in the show is being compiled HERE.

Interested in taking part?: Send your images ... your artwork and a recent pic of you that you're pleased with (on CD-ROM or as a jpg file attached to email).
I'll need good resolution images for those works selected for printing, so send 300 dpi if you can.
email details of you and of the work to dale @ tart.co.nz (remove spaces)

I'm happy to include on your page:
your thoughts, your philosophy, your activities,
a link to your own website,
size, medium, price if you want (your email address will be there, so buyers can contact you directly. No commission taken.)
Oh, and your postal address so I can send you a calendar.

The small legal bit:
By taking part in this exchange artists are agreeing to allow their image to be shown on the Internet.
Copyright of the work remains, as always, with the artist, but participants agree that if their work is selected as one of 12 images, calendars will be printed and distributed.
Full acknowledgement of the artist will be given on any use of their image.
