Call for Artists!

Share your view of adventure!

We want to see/read your perspective!

The button below will take you to the Google Form to submit your art for inclusion in the first ever Art Adventure Club Zine. 

What Adventure Looks Like:

an Art Adventure Club Retrospective zine catalogue series

The Art Adventure Club's own Call for Artists!

Art Adventurers respond to the prompt, "What Adventure Looks Like."

THE VISION: 

The COVID-19 Pandemic gives us a unique opportunity to capture history through the lens of the Art Adventure Club (AAC). What DID adventure look like for AAC members during this pandemic? 

 

This first volume will kick off the AAC's long-term zine catalogue project. As the collection grows over the coming years, our hope is that we will be able to look back through it all to see how we have grown and changed, or maybe we will find that adventure doesn’t really change? 

 

We are excited to showcase a sample of your work, your view of adventure, in this collection! It is amazing to see a cross-section of current artists of all levels, styles, 

 

ART EXPECTATIONS:

Please submit your artistic response to the prompt, “What adventure looks like during the COVID-19 pandemic.” The piece you submit must be created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic - while your work does not need to be COVID-19 or pandemic specific, we do want this to be a retrospective of your view of the concept of adventure during this time in our lives. As this publication is for print, all visual art forms, including written word, will be accepted. 

 

Before submitting, please ensure that your work does not use any copyrighted logos (i.e. sports teams, beer brands, businesses, etc.), or likenesses (i.e. Patrick Mahomes, Quinton Lucas, the person who serves as a the president, etc). 

 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the inclusive nature of AAC, we respectively ask that you err on the side of caution by not including explicit content in the work you submit for this publication. Submissions displaying messages of a derogatory, hateful, violent or sexually explicit nature will not be included in AAC publications, artists will be notified of this decision. 


BENEFITS

Our plan is three-fold:

  • Benefit to artists: 

    • Provide a catalyst or creative prompt for artists of all kinds to create adventure focused art. 

    • Provide a unique platform for participating artists to showcase one piece of work from the specified time frame. 

  • Benefit to Art Adventure Club: 

    • Each zine will serve as a historical record keeping device during a specific time frame, by compiling artwork (of all kinds, from a variety of artists) that answers the question, “What Adventure Looks Like.”

    • An outward facing product that can double as a recruitment tool for AAC members. 

  • Benefit to patrons (anyone who purchases/receives the zine):

    • Provide a tangible, collectible catalogue of art in a unique format that AAC zine patrons can use to learn a bit about the participating artists and hopefully become a patron of a specific artist(s) in the future.
