Finding the Beauty in Grayscale

Call For Submissions

Date: October 12th, 2018

Concept: We are (hopefully) moving from a world of stark black and white choices to one of gradients of gray. We are (hopefully) increasingly acknowledging that we live along a gradient with one another rather than across a line of demarcation, divided from each other by incidents of birth and chance. We ask artists to consider our graying world as a matter of beauty. Please note we are not requiring the entire work to be grayscale.

By Who: Waco Pride Network is working to foster an open, positive, and compassionate LGBTQ community in Waco Texas. We work towards this goal by holding events that unite, promote, commemorate and celebrate this community. We are mindful of our past, active in the present, and hopeful for the future.

Why: In 2017, the Out on the Brazos Planning Committee came together to relaunch Waco Pride after ten years of dormancy. What began as a picnic grew to an event that hosted between two hundred and four hundred people in Cameron Park. This year the Waco Pride Network was formed as the organization to plan and execute Waco Pride events in coming years. We are planning to formally launch the non-profit on October 12th, 2018 at the Out on Austin event.

Where: The gallery will be hosted at Cultivate 7Twelve, but the auction will be part of a larger event, Out on Austin. We are planning to engage large portions of the Austin Avenue District with this event.

When is submission due: October 1st, 2018
