Forgotten Works

The Forgotten Works Challenge, now in its 10th year, is open for submissions. Forgotten Works is an open group show in which 50 participating artists are given 30 days to produce 30 pieces of artwork. The organizers provide each artist with a set of canvases, and the artist must return the exact same canvases within a month. Any late entries, or entries with less than the full number of pieces, are rejected. The art will be on display through January at the OK Hotel in Seattle, where every piece is on sale for $40.

The show itself is a mixed bag of course, but the concept is great and the organizers are wide open to weird ideas. For information on participating, contact producer Charles Holzhey.
