BAC's Call For Artists
The Bossier Arts Council is thrilled to announce that we will be handling the artwork at two Community Trust Bank locations one in Bossier (2790 Airline Drive) and one in Shreveport (3400 Line Ave). We are currently looking for artists to display in both locations. When asked why an artist would like to take part in this opportunity Steven Belk, BAC's Gallery Coordinator responded, "We feel that art should be a part of everyday life and a bank is at least a part of everyone's week! We want the community to be more aware of the talent we have in our region and want to seize every opportunity to display our artists work".
Those selected to exhibit will be featured on our blog, website, facebook, and BAC will also send out a press release to local media. Each exhibition will hang for three months. Participating artists will have their work displayed at both bank locations at the same time. Steven estimates approximately 10-15 pieces (depending on size) for each exhibition. "This is a wonderful opportunity to get you work out there and exhibit in a non-traditional space" Belk said. "Not to mention you are helping BAC foster its mission to 'enhance the quality of life and to develop a cultural identity'".
Those interested in participating should email a resume, artist statement, and 3-5 images of art work to Steven Belk at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15th. If you have any questions please call 741-8310 and speak to Steven.
