CALL FOR WORK – ROBERT HARTMAN  – AIRBORNE – CAL ALUMNI SHOW

As detailed in this announcement, the department will be hosting a memorial retrospective exhibition for Professor Emeritus Robert Hartman 1926 – 2015.

As part of this exhibition, we are asking former students and other Art Practice alumni whose artwork was influenced by Robert Hartman to submit their work for inclusion in a show to be shown concurrently with Airborne in the small Worth Ryder space.

This exhibition is for Cal Alumni of the UC Berkeley Department of Art Practice who were influenced by Professor Robert Hartman. We are looking for no more than one work each. Works in any medium are welcome, but it should relate to your experience with Professor Hartman, and/or his artistic interests. All works should be finished and ready to show (i.e. framed, if needed).

THIS CALL FOR WORK HAS CLOSED!

To apply, please send an email to BOTH Director Farley Gwazda: gwazda@berkeley.edu AND Eleanor Freed eleanor@eleanorfreed.com . Include in the email:

An image of your work, less than 2MB, as an attachment or link to a website. A snapshot will do.

Your name, address, phone number, website (if you have one), and years you were at Cal.

Info for work: Artist name, Title, Year. Medium, Dimensions, and if it is in a collection or courtesy of a gallery. 

Special installation needs (i.e. a monitor, pedestal?)

Brief, informal explanation of how you knew Robert Hartman, and how his work influenced yours (not for publication).

Email subject line should read “Robert Hartman Submission”.

This email must be received by 11:59pm, Friday, February 5th, 2016. Incomplete applications cannot be considered.

If your work is selected, you will be informed promptly. Decisions about which works to include will be made by Worth Ryder Art Gallery Director Farley Gwazda, whose word is final. Professor Hartman taught for 30 years, and earned widespread popularity through his gentle nature and insightful criticism; it is likely that we won’t be able to use all the work submitted. We ask for your understanding in these matters.

All selected work must be dropped off at Professor Hartman’s residence in Oakland between 10am and 5pm on Tuesday, February 9th, 2016. Unfortunately, due to limited staffing, no exceptions can be made, so if you are unavailable at this time, please coordinate with a friend to make the drop-off. You will be sent the address via email.

Thank you for your interest!
