The Creator and The Muse
We are publishing another issue of portraits. Check here for the previous issue which features portraits of artists and poets. For this issue we are opening it up to our members which includes artists, poets, writers, and collectors.
This call is open to members of our platform. Either the creator or the muse must be a member. For example a member may have their portrait executed by someone outside the group and it may be submitted. Or a member of the group may execute a portrait of an artist or poet outside of our group. Or two members may collaborate. Poets may also contribute a poem based on someone’s artistic work. Anyone who is a member may be the muse to a creator who is not a muse.
This will be a publication and virtual exhibition unless we find a physical venue to show the works.
Artists may not post the works in progress online or final images of completed portraits. We would like like to unveil all the portraits in the issue so the sitter also should not see the finished portrait until the publication and virtual or physical exhibition is online or hung.
Members should take photos or videos of the process and include in the folder. Read our general guidelines before submitting.
Works may not have been completed before January 1, 2019.
The deadline is October 1, 2019.
The deadline for press consideration is August 1, 2019.
For this call anyone who qualifies and participates will be included in the publication. No rejections.
Publication will take place sometime in December 2019. The format for the publication will be available online and a PDF will be available to download. No print-on-demand will be available for this issue.
The works must be available to sell through the venue selected.
If you are a member please use the universal submission form. If you are not sure what this is, the link is posted in the Patreon page or ask Didi Menendez.
If you are not a member then ask your subject who is a member to email you the link to submit.
All mediums are accepted including photography, digital renderings, painting, poetry, other writings including articles about an artist’s work, drawings, video and anything else you feel qualifies as a well defined portrait of the subject.
Are you a member or is your subject a member? If yes proceed.
Folders should contain high resolution images, 4 point bio, process photos, and a statement from your muse that you have been granted to right to portray their likeness in a portrait for this publication.
Keep the final portrait to unveil in the publication and/or exhibition venue’s. Do not show process images on Instagram or social media. If you are a creator and a member then the work will be eligible for sales. If you are not a member then the work will only be published.
Is the work available to sell through the venue confirmed? If no, then thank you for reading through the guidelines.
