ARTCRANK PDX 2014 will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Portland area artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $50 each. Admission is free.
UPDATE: ARTCRANK is returning to Portland for our sixth show. We’re excited to announce that after five years in the Pearl District downtown, we’re moving across the river to hold the show at Velo Cult, a bike shop-coffee shop-bar on Portland’s east side. This is going to be fun. But first, we need some poster artists.
CALL FOR ARTISTS
We have extended our submission deadlines, and are now accepting artist submissions for our 2014 show. Please note that we have a strict locals-only policy, and will only consider artists who live and work in the greater Portland area.
To be considered for the show, send three digital samples of previous art and design work (URLs, JPGs, PDFs, etc.) to us via email.
While we definitely look for experience with screen-printing, letterpress and other craft printing techniques, your samples do not need to be posters and/or bike-related — just work that shows your skills and style.
Please do not submit proposed/spec poster designs — only artists who are selected for the show will be asked to create new work.
The Call for Entries will close on Saturday, August 16 — submit your samples today!
Please check back for updates, and follow ARTCRANK on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest news. And if you’d like to see photos and videos from previous events, connect with us on Flickr and Vimeo as well. See you soon!
