I'm not affiliated with this, and I'm in general against "entry fees" for exhibitions of lowbrow art, but for the rest of you sodomites, Mormons, wiccans, and D&D players, I thought you'd want to know:|
Call for Entries for Jack T. Chick tribute exhibition
Call for Entries
Painters of Blight
Curated by Erin Norlin, David Miller and Kipling West
Opening July 9, 2004
In conjunction with the "Painters of Blight" show (art based on the work of Thomas Kinkade, the "Painter of Light") we are announcing an open call for a group exhibition focusing on religious tract cartoonist Jack T. Chick. Work should comment on or be inspired by the comics and religious world-view of Jack T. Chick, who for years has been proselytizing his fundamentalist and extreme Christian faith though intense eight-page comic pamphlets. For more information on Jack Chick, visit www.chick.com.
The focus of the exhibition will be on hangeable art, but curators will consider work in all media, including video, sculpture and performance art.
Send proposals along with $10 submission fee by mail to:
Painters of Blight
4710 Aurora Ave N #101
Seattle, WA 98103
Or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (use www.paypal.com to send fee electronically)
Deadline for proposals is Friday May 28. Curators will respond by email by Monday, June 7. Finished work for the exhibition must be delivered by Thursday, July 8.
"Painters of Blight" will open Friday, July 9th at James Crespinel Studio in Seattle (next door to Roq la Rue Gallery) and run through that weekend. The show will open the same night as the July Roq la Rue show (artist/s TBA) and will be a high visibility event in Belltown!
Art will be picked up by the artists Sunday, July 11.

I saw that on the seattlecacophony list today. I think this certifies his status as a Pop-Culture Icon [tm].
(I'll admit to being fascinated by his weirdness, enough to track down a copy of Imp #2
, which was all about him. There's a book out now, too.)
AAAIIIEEEEEEE!!!! Haw haw haw!
