Souvenirs of Summer 

National call, open to all artists 18 and older.  All media shall be considered.

This will be the third version of a show Fabulon hosts about the significant and symbolic transitions of summer’s end.  Each year in late August, artists regroup after vacation adventures to show recent work and commemorate the new gallery season.  Between years one and two we saw fewer scenes of the sun fading on the beach and the last of the vine ripe tomatoes to portrayals of the feelings that the changing seasons evoke, gathering indoors and hunkering down for winter.

This year we seek deep themes of transition and the passage of time.  For some it is a new beginning associated with starting school, but for others it is bittersweet evidence that children are growing up and venturing out.

What conjures up a sense of nostalgia? What have you lost?

What do you hold most dear? For what do you long?

Encaustic Show: Wax Poetic

Who could resist such a title especially since October is Charleston’s first city wide Poetry Festival called Free Verse.

Fabulon will curate a juried show of encaustic work with and without Poetry as a component. The main goal is to bring encaustic work to the people. Show why artists are enthralled. Show the best it can be. Elevate from the crafty, decopauge, or crayon connotation it has in some minds.

Send up to five images per entry that use the medium of encaustic.  We will choose up to three for the exhibit and sale.  Artists must send a statement about their work.

All work must be for sale.  The gallery receives 40% of the sale.  Artist is responsible for delivery and pick up of artwork.  Artwork may be brought to the gallery in person Tuesday-Saturday 10-5pm, or shipped using FedEx or USPS only (NOT UPS) with shipping labels both ways.  No packing peanuts, please.

Artwork must be in hang ready condition with wire method only, no sawtooth hangers will be accepted.  Each piece must have a label firmly affixed to the back, stating name, title, and contact information.  Artwork must have been created within the last 2 years, not derived from copyrighted images, and not created under the direction of an instructor.  We will accept images of work in progress, with the understanding it will be finished by the deadline.

Deadline for submission is 8/21/17, artists will be notified by 8/31/17.

Tribute

Artists' Reception October 21

 So many tragic losses of great musicians in the most recent years. Each week it seems another icon from the classical rock era or maker of the epic album has passed. The legacy of poetic lyrics, our only consolation.

As part of Charleston’s Poetry festival, Fabulon Gallery will host a show of work inspired by music because it plays such an important role for many visual artists. It’s in our soul, it moves us, and it translates into our images.

A certain song can take us to a special time or place in our own history. Maybe it’s the beats, tunes, musicians, instruments, or lyrics. Perhaps it is just one line from a song? Or the entire life of the artist. Do you have your own theme song?  Do you have one song that gets you in your artistic groove?

Pay tribute to your favorite inspiration. We will accept portraits, even Elvis on velvet. 

Ideally we seek poetic music that becomes inspiration for an image.

Please no copyright infringement. It is the responsibility of the artist to do the research. As a gallery we do our best to protect your copy rights; please do the same for our musical artists.
