Hospice of Santa Barbara Seeks Photographic Submissions for Gallery Exhibit

The deadline is June 10 to enter proposals exploring grief, loss, life-threatening illness or end-of-life

Hospice of Santa Barbara invites regional artists, either individuals or a group, to submit their photographic hanging works for consideration for the Leigh Block Gallery at Hospice of Santa Barbara. Art that explores grief, loss, life-threatening illness or end-of-life is desired, as are themes reflecting one’s journey after a loss.

Hospice of Santa Barbara introduced the Leigh Block Art Gallery in January 2010. To date, six exhibitions have been on view at Hospice of Santa Barbara.

The deadline for submissions is 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 10.

These exhibitions are to be an expression of Hospice of Santa Barbara’s vision and commitment to heal the fear of death, confront the loneliness of grief and honor the healing power of compassionate care as we learn to live and love again after loss. The exhibitions will run quarterly: July to September 2011, October to December 2011, January to March 2012 and April to June 2012.

Artists interested in submitting must send a cover letter and a disc contacting images or proposed work and a current resume. Groups may also be considered for one exhibition. Click here for detailed instructions for artist submissions.

The Hospice of Santa Barbara Art Review Committee may choose two to four exhibitions from the entries submitted for the 2011-12 calendar years and will consider creativity, aesthetics and appropriateness of concept. Each exhibition will be on view for approximately three months.

For more information, call K.C. Murphy Thompson at 805.563.8820.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
