Hope is Never Silent: Queer Art Across Texas

Hope Is Never Silent has partnered with regional advocacy groups to curate a traveling exhibit -- a moveable museum of sorts -- that will give voice to Queer Art.

This traveling juried exhibition seeks to reflect this pivotal artistic movement within the Civil Rights Movement.

Queer Art Across Texas is expanding the range and depth of knowledgeabout contemporary Queer Culture.

The exhibit will be enhanced by a number of pamphlets that allow visitors to witness the creative process in the context of myriad factors - an amalgam of gender, racial, ethnic and sexual - that have ultimately changed America forever.
No pride march would be complete without celebrating its own rich artistic and avant-garde culture.
Indeed, what is a celebration of Culture without Art?
And what better way to celebrate Culture than with Art?

The show has been selected to participate at:
The Houston GLBT Center in Houston, June 20 – July 7, 2012.
Charles Adams Gallery in Lubbock, August 3 – Sept 8, 2012.
Juror’s choice, at the Ilume Gallery in Dallas, September 19-28, 2012.

The juror, Patricia Earl invites all Texas LGBTQ artists and their allies to submit work for consideration and be a part of our moveable museum. Together, with all our voices, “Hope Will Never Be Silent.”

Only Two-dimensional work will be accepted, maximum size of 60 x 60 inches. All work must be “ready-to-hang.” Works on paper are to be framed with secure hanging wire or d-rings (frame not required for stretched canvas). Saw-tooths and other hanging devices will not be accepted. Plexiglas must be used instead of glass for framing.

Deadline for entry form, CD, and $25 entry fee is April 27, 2012 (postmarked). On June 4, 2012 accepted artists will be contacted by e-mail.Works accepted into the exhibit must be received between June 4-15, 2012.
