ARTISTS OPEN HOUSES
Gemini Print, AOH’s print partners and sponsors, are calling all artists with the opportunity to be the monthly face of the The Gemini Print Group 2018 calendar.
Gemini Print are looking for images in any media from artists making connections with the word Gemini, to feature on Gemini Print’s 2018 calendar, which will be distributed to clients and also sold publicly, with all funds going to the local Brighton Starr Trust charity. Gemini Print is committed to using environmentally friendly print methods, as conveyed in its butterfly logo.
For the calendar theme of Gemini you might like to think about the various connotations of the word: Twins (pairs or doubles), Castor and Pollux, constellations of the hemisphere, astrology. Those born under its sign are said to be: Artistic, Intellectual, Individualistic. Gemini is an air sign – the element of butterflies!
You can enter as many images as you like, the more the merrier!
What’s in it for you?
All artists’ work published in the calendar will carry full artists’ credits. The selected artworks will also feature on Gemini Print’s website & social media pages, linking to each artist’s own site or AOH listing.
Please email images for consideration in JPEG or PDF format, to:
Suzanne Heaven: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for submissions is Friday 3rd November
