Call for Artists: 2 Shows Fall 2011

The Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild
announces a call for artists to exhibit in two gallery shows

Natural Progressions

at the Lireille Gallery in Oakland CA November 21, 2011 – January 7, 2012
(Reception: December 2, 2011)


Sacred Geometry and Beyond

at the Z Folio Gallery in Monterey, CA
November 2, 2011 – January 9, 2012
(Reception: November 6, 2011)


Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild is excited to present two gallery exhibition opportunities this fall, from November to the beginning of January.  You may enter either or both shows,  see attached entry form.

Many of our members have been looking for new exhibit opportunities, so not only is this an opportunity to enhance your resume, but also a chance to market work in a gallery setting.  All pieces submitted to these shows must be for sale and priced with commissions to the gallery in mind. (Z Folio:  60% Artist/ 40% Gallery,  and Lireille: 50% / 50% ).   Both of these galleries have an online presence: view Lireille Gallery at: and Z Folio at:

We will run these shows concurrently,  gathering work for both shows at collection points here in Santa Cruz and Monterey,  so you need not contact either gallery directly.

The themes are listed above and may be interpreted as you wish.

Further information will be posted here as it becomes available.  All entrants will receive additional information.  The MBMAG co-chairs for these concurrent exhibitions are Barbara Banducci and Melissa Offutt.  Barbara Banducci will
process the entry forms.  The entry fee is $40 for for both shows if you sign up before June 15 and after that, $50 until July 31.  Entry fees are nonrefundable and you must be a current, paid-up MBMAG member.   Additional information is on the attached entry form (below).
