What and Why
Wild Goose Creative, in partnership with Yay Bikes! announces a call for entries to a bicycle-inspired poster show called Pinchflat 2015: 30 Local Artists / 30 Prints / $30 bucks a print.
All posters will be created by artists in Columbus or central Ohio. Artwork included in the poster show will encourage bike riding, celebrate the art and craft of bikes, or invite thought about bikes as an important way to get around our fine city of Columbus. Artwork might also be designed to persuade people to get on a bike in the first place!
Posters should be printed with any of the following methods; silk-screened, etched, lino cut, or letterpressed. Posters sizes can be either 11×17 (12.5” x 19”) or 18x24 (19”x25”). Each poster will be priced to sell at $30 and will be displayed along with 30 other posters. Artists will be responsible for having their artwork printed (33 posters for the show (30 for sale and 3 for display)) and delivered to Paradise Garage (921 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43201) for exhibition and sale. Wild Goose Creative and Pinchflat will retain the right to handle sales of posters for the duration of the exhibition.
25% of proceeds will be retained by Wild Goose Creative and 75% will be the artist’s commission on the art work.
