You can still sign up for the Love in the Cloud show below!
Welcome to the Modern Era, where just about everything is created, document, duplicated, procured and stored in the intangible ether of the internet- with prevalence of social networking and dating sites, even love can be distilled from the bits and bytes!
When contemplating how to do the fabulous, uncensored open-call non-juried Love show this year lacking a gargantuan space and without the usual team, ever crafty Launch Pad Administrative Director Sara McCormick proposed an utterly modern solution: We will do the show on the internet, where space is near infinite, and potential for exposure is as vast as you make it!
And so with no further ado, we welcome you to Love in the Cloud!
We are thrilled to invite you to participate in this no size constraints, no holds barred Love Show, open to artists everywhere working in any media. We humbly invite you to make work responding to the multi-faceted enigma of Love: romantic, tragic, plutonic, confused, abused, enthused– don’t make me keep rhyming here, you get the idea– and send in a high-quality.jpg with information about your piece and we will post it up on this here website and promote it via the facebook and twitter and through our email list and on printed showcards, etc, and you will hopefully do the same, and we will all rejoice in the interconnected digital web of love that we’ve made! And Maybe sell some art as well.
There’s no fee to participate in this show, and work doesn’t have to be for sale, but if you choose to sell your work the Love Show will take a 5% commission which we will donate to a local Portland arts non-profit, yet to be determined.
For examples of how the show will look, see last years art here…
After you sign up below, you will receive an email with instructions on how to submit work.
(fyi. we will never, ever sell or share your information at all ever, except within the context of this show)
