Dark Art 2020
The Syzygy Collaborative Art Project is proud to present the 4th annual Dark Art exhibition.
This show features the very finest and most notorious collection of juried artwork in SWFL, all dedicated to the spirit of horror, macabre, and darkness during the Halloween season.
The exhibition opens during Art Walk on Friday September 4th from 6 – 10 pm at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center. As always, the opening reception is an immersive experience with music, live performances, live art, and entertainment in addition to spectacularly spooky original art.
Join us as we celebrate all things dark. Costumes are encouraged.
This is a free public event. All ages welcome, *however* the burlesque act starting at 9 pm is an 18+ show.
TO SUBMIT ARTWORK FOR CONSIDERATION, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES:
*Artists may submit up to FOUR pieces for consideration. (There is no submission fee)
*All media is accepted, including sculpture. There are no size restrictions, so long as the piece will fit through standard doorways and is ready to display. (3-dimensional pieces must be display-ready, either free-standing or wall-hanging)
*Please send quality images (no more than 3mb in size) labeled appropriately for identification purposes (ex: lastname_title.jpg) attached to an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
*Make sure to include the following in the email body:
Artist’s name(s), Title, Medium, Dimensions, and Retail price (include 40% to venue, artist retains 60% of sales) for each submitted work.
Please mention “Dark Art 2020” in the subject of the email.
IF YOU ARE MISSING CRITERIA YOUR SUBMISSION MAY NOT BE ACCEPTED.
*Artists not from the SWFL area are responsible for any and all shipping costs for the delivery of accepted artwork and the return of unsold work.
*Pending acceptance, artwork must be ready to display. 2D work must be ready to hang with hanging wire or appropriate hardware, and sculpture must be free-standing. Pedestals can be provided for small-scale 3D works. Any works not display-ready upon the drop-off date are subject to rejection!
*Artwork must have been produced within the past 12 months. Art previously exhibited at Dark Art will not be accepted.
**Most importantly, artwork must adhere to the theme of ‘dark art’. This includes, but isn’t limited to: monsters, magic, witches, zombies, creatures, nightmares, surreal hellscapes, skulls, spirits, ghouls, demons, devils, ghosts, etc. The purpose of this show is to encourage artists to explore these themes and the darker spectrum of thought and imagination.

We look forward to seeing what you produce, dark artists!
