Harry Dean Stanton Fest 2013: Call for Artists

During the month of May, Lexington’s State Theatre Gallery (adjacent to the Kentucky Theatre) will host a display of Harry Dean Stanton- inspired art in conjunction with the 2013 Harry Dean Stanton Festival. Deadline to submit Art for consideration for this exhibit is April 1, 2013.

Harry Dean Stanton Fest 3 is scheduled for May 31 through June 2, 2013 in Lexington, Kentucky.

Festival organizers say “Painting, sculpture, woodcut, etch-a-sketch–we are open to all mediums,” as long as Harry Dean Stanton’s face appears somewhere therein.

Selected work will be displayed in the theater throughout the month, and 100 percent of art sales will go to the artists.

In order to submit: please send a high-res jpeg image of your original HDS artwork, along with dimension descriptions, to lucyjonesky@gmail.com by April 1, 2013. There are no submission fees. Artists will be notified by April 10, 2013 if their work is chosen.

Limitations are:

1) All pieces must be able to fit through the doors of the Kentucky Theatre.

2) All pieces to be hung from walls must have hooks to accommodate the State Gallery’s hanging system. Please feel free to e-mail for details. All smaller freestanding pieces must have pedestals or stands.

3) Delivery and pick-up of unsold items are the responsibility of the artist.
