Teen Angst Art Show

timthumbI am doing an art show with the wonderful Hot Art Wet City gallery. This is a show I’ve dreamed about doing for a decade and it’s finally happening!

Here are the show details and the call for submissions from H.A.W.C.

Teenage Wasteland
August 7-10, 2013
OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday August 7 from 7-11pm
2206 Main Street, Vancouver

Sara Bynoe hosts an art show of embarrassing art by adults made when they were teenagers. Inspired by Teen Angst Night and her book Teen Angst: A Celebration of Really Bad Poetry, this show features pieces of art (sketches, paintings, sculpture, etc) created between the ages of 10-18. The show highlights the stories behind the work and the angst that went into them. Teenage Wasteland includes an audio tour with background interviews with the artists and live performances related to the work throughout the week.

Call for Submissions
We want your angsty and embarrassing art for “Teenage Wasteland.” We’re not interested in your photo-realist painting of a swan, we’re looking for angsty and expressive teenage art.

  • The work must have been created by you when you were a teenager (aged 10-18) and you must be over 21 years old to submit
  • You should be embarrassed of the work now
  • You must be willing (and available) to talk about your piece in July for audio tour recording and potentially in front of a live audience at the show in August

Please email a JPG of your piece to teenagewasteland@hotartwetcity.com along with some background information about the piece: why do you still have it, how old were you when you created it, how do you feel about it now, what’s the story behind the work, etc. This is a juried show. Artists selected to participate will be notified after the deadline. Submission deadline: Wednesday July 4, 2013 at 12pm
