Call for Art – Fauntleroy Fence Project at The Whittaker, located at Fauntleroy and Alaska St.

Submission Deadline: March 1st, 2014

Exhibit will run: Indefinitely

Open to the students of West Seattle High School, Chief Sealth International High School and Seattle Lutheran High School interested in the Arts.

Twilight Gallery & Boutique is excited to partner with the development team of Lennar and Weingarten, along with local community members to curate the surrounding area of Fauntleroy and Alaska St., to feature some of our emerging local student artists. We are always thrilled to have the opportunity to extend the reach of art outside of the gallery and into the community.

Many emerging artists find wonder and inspiration in the area in which they live. The Pacific Northwest has been a muse for many artists as they reflect on the landscape, the history and the culture in which they grew up or migrated to. With that in mind, we seek artwork inspired by the surrounding landscape that we view and experience in our daily lives here in West Seattle. We encourage work that speaks to the spirit of adventure, exploration and wonder – from our local neighborhood parks, beaches, trails and stunning city view – to our scenic mountain views of the Olympic Mountains and the Cascade Range. What inspires you about the local landscape? What are some of your favorite scenic views? Do you have a secret trail that you love to explore? Which local beach makes you happy and inspired? Where do you return to again and again with family and friends? What do you discover just out walking in some our most vibrant neighborhoods?

Chosen artwork will be professionally scanned, printed and featured on the fencing at
4755 Fauntleroy Way SW. Twenty-five student artists will be chosen to participate. Artwork will be featured for the duration of the development project.

Size restrictions: artwork must be no smaller than 8.5″ x 11″ and no larger than 11 X 17 and be able to lay flat for high resolution scanning.  Art work will be enlarged to
