Although I'm sending this to all the club members, it only applies to people that have taken a class from me at some point.
Becky and I have partnered with GrassRoots Fair Trade to provide my students with an opportunity to show, and sell, their work. Jill Dean, owner of GrassRoots, is committed to encouraging and promoting local emerging artists. Using GrassRoots as the venue each month she plans to showcase a different artistic medium. Jill would like to begin these shows this April with photography.
This first exhibit is limited to work done by students (former or current) of Gutierrez Photography.
The opening reception for this show is scheduled for Friday, April 5th. This does not give us much time to put things together.
If you are interested in submitting work for display send me a digital copy of the piece (or pieces).
· Size the file so that it’s long edge is no more than 1800 pixels in length.
· Provide the finished, framed dimensions for each work. Those works selected for the show will hang from nails or hangers embedded in the wall. You may mat and frame your work any way you would like, so long as it looks professional and the piece will hang easily
· There are no restrictions on the subject, location, or date of your work
· All submissions must be family friendly
· You may elect to offer your work for sale. If you do, provide the price you’re asking.
· The deadline for getting your digital files to me is Sunday, March 24, 6:00pm AKDT.
From the submissions I receive, Jill, Becky, and I will select the photographs that will be included in the show.
if If someone is interested in purchasing your work, GrassRoots will put them in touch with you. The two of you will work out the details of the sale. GrassRoots will not take a commission on the sale.
If you have any questions call me at[masked] or email.
GrassRoots is committed to providing Alaskans with an alternative way to shop that ensures that the producers creating each item are fairly treated and paid.
They carry jewelry, scarves, handbags, home and kitchen decor, toys, stationery, and food, all of which is Fair Trade certified and come from third world countries throughout the world. Every item has a unique story behind it; each represents... a group of people who are now receiving the opportunity to support themselves and their families with dignity. From paper flowers woven out of recycled phone books by women in the slums of Bangkok to soda can jewelry crafted by persons with physical disabilities in Kenya, all of our items are unique and enable individuals to lift themselves out of poverty.
