HUDSON GUILD SEEKS VISUAL ART WORK FOR \"Jazz and Art\" EXHIBIT IN 2009
Generations of visual artists have been influenced by jazz. Likewise numerous musicians and composers have been drawn to the visual arts as an additional means of self expression. The connection between these two art forms has produced some of the most exciting and important art of the 20th century. The spirit of jazz music - its originality, improvisation, spontaneity, and emotional content - is evident in much of the visual art created today.
Hudson Guild is seeking artwork for an exhibit entitled Jazz and Art, scheduled to run from April 19 through June 3, 2009 at the Hudson Guild Gallery, 441 W. 26th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues in New York City . Included will be art produced by visual artists whose work has been influenced by jazz, as well as work by jazz musicians and composers who create visual art. If you meet either of those criteria, please submit jpegs (low resolution), slides or photographs, along with a brief bio and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to Jim Furlong, Director of Arts, Hudson Guild, 441 W. 26th Street , NY , NY 10001 . Deadline for submissions is February 1, 2009.
