:: my Atlantis :: call for entries :: july 30 ::
:: one night opening party and exhibition ::


open to all mosaic artists - work must be hand delivered for this event or shipped insured to:

my Atlantis
1890 Bryant Street #207
San Francisco, CA 94110

only two dimensional pieces may be submitted (due to the 'cocktail-ish celebration opening party' nature of this particular fish and goose soiree, we're going to keep everything on the wall this time!) we have established our shipping process earlier than expected, so we are opening this up for artists who would like to ship their work back and forth. artists will be responsible for paying shipping charges both ways.

size limit is 36"h x 36"w x 2"d

weight limit 50 lbs.

entry fee : $15 per submission, and there is no limit to the number of submissions you can make. a separate check must accompany each submission. if any one of your submissions is not accepted, your entry fee will be returned for that submission.

the jury ::
julia di biasi / www.juliadibiasi.com - julia owned and operated three galleries in boston, massachusetts prior to becoming the founder of 'my Atlantis' and her charitable organization, 'my Atlantis'. she has juried several dozen art exhibitions and has been responsible for exposing many new, up and coming artists to the gallery world.
bloum cardenas / www.bloum.net - born in bali and schooled in both france and the US (Parsons School of Design), bloum has spent her entire life closely tied to the art world. bloum's love of plastic bags and the message they carry with their colors and words is evident in her paintings. They seem to her a reflection of our world. "...At this intersection of pragmatism, politics, metaphor, and marketing lies the work of Bloum. Incorporating bags from a wide range of sources, her paintings speak of daily errands and philosophical issues..." - Laura Richard Janku
carol bevilacqua / www.duro-design.biz - carol has been doing graphic design, illustration and painting for over 25 years. she has been working 18 of them as a senior artist at the university of california at berkeley. carol is also a very talented mosaic artist and makes her own ceramic tiles which she adds to her unique and colorful pieces.
