Solar Eclipse & Astronomical Art & Lit Reading at FFOYA House

August 4, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Bowling Green will experience a once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse on Aug. 21, 2017. In celebration, the FFOYA House Art Gallery will display an art show for the month of August on the theme of the solar eclipse and all things astronomical, astrological, galactic, solar and lunar. The show will open with the BG Gallery Hop on August 4, 5-9 p.m. along with a literary reading.

We are seeking visual artists to participate in the art show, writers to read their original creative work during the literary reading, and businesses and other organizations who would like to partner on the event as sponsors.

ARTISTS: The theme is open for interpretation. All mediums and styles are welcome. We encourage experimental and multimedia work and installations. To be considered for the show, please email ffoyahouse@gmail.com with Solar Eclipse Art in the subject line no later than July 20. 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. FFOYA House seeks to help working class artists make a living from their work, so we welcome artists to make and sell prints or other items to sell along with the original work. Art must be ready to be displayed by July 26.

WRITERS: FFOYA House will be holding a literary reading along with the art opening during the BG Gallery Hop event on Aug. 4. Poets and writers interested in participating should email a note of interest with “August literary reading” in the subject line. While encouraged to explore the theme, writers are welcome to share any original work during the reading.

BUSINESSES: We are also seeking businesses and local organizations to partner with us as sponsors of the show and future BG Gallery Hop events at FFOYA House. Email ffoyahouse@gmail.com.
