Deadline:  Monday, April 30 at 6 p.m.

Tempus Projects announces their summer open call for submissions. ‘Sunistra’ is a multi-media, juried art exhibition focusing on the sinister side of the Sunshine State.

The exhibition title is a portmanteau of “sunshine” and the Latin word “sinistra” and reflects the often-idyllic, often-nightmarish dichotomy Florida embodies in its natural, social and political climates.

This exhibition will runs May 19 – July 6.

ELIGIBILITY – The call for submissions is open to all artists, working in any media. All forms of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, printmaking, performance, video, film, audio and digital or graphic art are eligible for review.

Jurors are interested in seeing each artist’s perspective on the theme and how they develop these interpretations  of “Sunistra.”

SUBMISSION FORMAT All images should be submitted digitally with a completed submission form and corresponding entry fees.

JUROR – Christopher Jones, Curator of Photography and New Media at The Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota.

NOTIFICATION – Artists will be notified of acceptance or decline no later than Friday, May 4. Notifications will be made via e-mail. Accepted works must be received by Friday May 11. Accepted artists will be contacted with details for artwork delivery.

COMMISSION – There will be a 40% commission on any sales made during this exhibition or from the TEMPUS PROJECTS website.

ENTRY FEE – There is a non-refundable $20 entry fee for three digital image files; $5 for each additional file. Submit as many works as you wish.
