City Lights Gallery is issuing a “call for artists” to particpate in its second “SameSex” show, a gay art exhibit scheduled for late spring.
Which, of course, begs the perennial question, What is gay art?
That’s up to the artist.
“We are intentionally not providing a specific description of this theme, thus encouraging artists who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or otherwise supportive of this community to offer their interpretation,” City Lights program director Suzanne Kachmar’s call states. Anyone who went to the first SameSex show can tell you that the jury (which I am on) is not concerned with frightening the horses.
“SameSex” is scheduled to open the last week of May, with an artists’ reception in June.
Submissions in jpeg form are due by April 6. For more info email firstname.lastname@example.org.
