CALL FOR ART! Smart, an exhibition of wit, ingenuity and guile

Time to show us just how clever you can be!

EDIT: Thanks again to everyone that submitted to the call for art! We've posted the final list for all of the participants here!

We have another call for art! But you'll have to be quick because we don't have a ton of time for the open call! Take a peek at all of the details below and submit your name, email and website links in the comments by Wednesday, March 27th to be considered!

SMART, an exhibition of wit, ingenuity and guile
will be featured May 17 - June 7th at Light Grey Art Lab
and is being curated by Amy Ng, the fantastic founder of Pikaland.com!

Amy has always been a huge advocate of illustrators and the creative process and she's teamed up with us to put together an exceptionally fun and clever show! We are so excited to be collaborating with her and we can't wait to see how this show comes together! If you haven't had a chance to peek at her awesome blog, check it out, here! You can see she's no stranger to clever work! Amy will be hand-picking the artists that will join us for this show and we're super excited about it!

Have you ever looked at a piece of work and said "I wish I thought of that!" or at second glance said "I see what you did there?" Well, this show is all about the surprise and delight we receive from really crafty, clever pieces of work! The theme of the month is all about intentionality and content. It's all that extra time we put into thinking about how we surprise ourselves as artists!

We're looking for ideas that will have us going "aha!" Might you juxtapose several opposing themes in an interesting way? Maybe you've got an idea that uses a hilarious double entendre? Are you reinventing how we see an otherwise everyday topic? Or are you creating a narrative image that is just.... well.... smart.

We're looking for some great artists that are up for the challenge.

Since we don't have a ton of time for this call, we want you to know that if you are interested in joining us that we would need final artwork from our participants by Friday, April 26th. If you are up for it, please post a comment below with you name, email and website.
We will respond to all participating artists on Thursday, March 28th and we will post a blog shortly after.

Do you have any questions? Please let me know!
Send me an email at hello@lightgreyartlab.com and I'll get back to you asap.
Hope you can join us!
