It seems that Folio Weekly is getting into the art game. Posted over at Jacksonville Confidential is a call for submissions for The Folio Weekly Invitational Art Exhibit ’09.
The flier says the show will open at a site still being determined in March, to coincide with the paper’s visual arts issue. It also says “This very important show will set the standard for the local art scene.”
I can’t help but wonder if the cart is way out there in front of the horse...according to an email I sent over to Folio, they aren’t even sure who is juroring the event yet.
However, for those interested in participating, submit 5 samples of your strongest works by January 31 to:
Art Director Folio Weekly
9456 Philips Hwy, Suite 11
Jax, FL 32256
