Event Selection
Black velvet paintings of Elvis Presley or dogs playing poker are kitsch and we all know it. But, what if we reinterpreted that tacky-but-luxurious material into something relevant for today? That is exactly what we are asking artists to do. Submit your kitschiest velvet work for consideration into this exhibition and help the audience see this medium in a new light. All subjects, techniques, media and styles are encouraged although black velvet must be utilized in some fashion. Peel back the seedy side of this lost art form and show us what you’ve got!

Deadline to receive this submission is April 13 by 4 p.m.
