Arts: Calls for Submissions in Portland

A couple of great ongoing calls for submissions coming out of Portland so if you or an artist you know is in the area, check these out:

SPACE Gallery is seeking proposals for visual installations for its 538 storefront window exhibition space.  It's a unique three dimensional space which gives an artist plenty of room to trick out with an unconventional installation. There are large street facing glass panels (85″ high x 110″wide), a window platform (179″ long, 26″ deep, 17″ tall) and the back wall (centered on the platform, 96″ tall x 122″ wide). Also, this location gets lots of foot traffic so you're work WILL be seen. No deadline listed. For more information visit http://space538.org/blog/2012/05/16/call-for-submissions/.
Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center in Portland has an ongoing call for submissions. The nonprofit arts organization highlights the work of local and regional, American and international artists focusing on challenging and emerging ideas in contemporary art. Disjecta's Curatorial Committee reviews proposals from artists and organizations, choosing programs for their artistic strength and cultural and/or social relevance. For complete information visit http://www.disjecta.org/getinvolved/artists.php.
