Creative Nonfiction call for artists, illustrators, Pittsburgh Pa

Pittsburgh-based artists only
Deadline: March 31, 2011

Creative Nonfiction is currently seeking Pittsburgh-based artists to illustrate its summer issue, #42. The application period for #42 is open through March 31, 2011.

We will consider various media (e.g. line drawings, watercolor, collage) and welcome all styles of interpretation, providing they are well suited to a print format. The artist chosen will work closely with CNF editorial and design staff to create 8 to 10 original designs to be featured on the cover and interior of the magazine.

This is an excellent opportunity for illustrators (student and professional) to have their work prominently featured in a literary magazine with an international circulation of 7,000. The artist chosen will also be profiled prominently for at least three months on CNF's website, which attracts nearly 10,000 visitors per month.

Interested artists should email a resume and three low-resolution jpeg samples of their best work to information[at]creativenonfiction.org no later than March 31, 2011; a link to an electronic portfolio is also preferred. Selections will be made by April 15, with work taking place between April 15 and June 1.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
