Bowling Green Black Lives Matter is taking over the FFOYA House gallery for the June 2 BG Gallery Hop. We are seeking visual artists working in any medium on the theme of “Black Lives Matter.” We are looking for work that reflects the experience of people of color and that celebrates their bodies, minds and souls.
To be considered for the show, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with BLM Art in the subject line no later than May 10. Send jpg images of completed work or work in progress along with the following information: name, medium/materials, size, price or NFS, whether prints are available, special hanging/display instructions and a description of how the work relates to the theme. Preference will be given to artists of color, so please specify, and note if you would be willing to donate a portion of the sales price or the sale of prints to BLM. FFOYA House seeks to support working class artists and help them make a living from their work, so we encourage artists to make and sell prints along with the display of original work.
We will be holding a literary reading along with the BG Gallery Hop on June 2. Poets and writers interested in participating should email a note of interest with "BLM literary reading" in the subject line.
