'Weather or Not' call for entry - 'Weather or Not' asks artists to consider the many possibilities that face the world as we enter 2012. This calendar year has increasingly become the subject of theories and speculation, many based on the ancient Mayan calendar. The rash of recent natural and weather related disasters begs the question: does the world now stand on the verge of a cataclysmic transformation, a period of individual / collective spiritual transcendence, or are things likely to continue as they've always been. All mediums will be considered including, but not limited to: 2-D/3-D works, installations, performance, video and digital media (the gallery does not provide screens or projectors for display of video or digital media). $15 for 3 works, $7 for each additional submission, max 5 entries per person. Images should be 1200 pixels on the longest side, 72 dpi, jpegs. Videos should be less than 20mb and saved as an .mpeg. Files should be saved as lastname_firstname_#.jpeg/mpeg. Payment may be made by check or money order. Please make payments out to Indigo Sky Community Gallery and mailed to 915 Waters Ave., Savannah, GA 31404. Images and entry forms can be submitted two ways: Emailed to; CD with images and entry form mailed to the gallery with submission fee. Submission deadline Friday, December 2, 2011- Submission deadline (mailed entries must arrive by this date). Work can be hand delivered on Friday, January 6, 2012 from 11am - 4pm.
