1st Group Exhibit a Success!

I'm happy to report that Poppy & Prime's first group art exhibition, "What We Knew When We Were Small," was a great success! We had many more times people than expected, and sold quite a number of pieces at the show.

About $500 will be donated to various charities on behalf of the artists and the collective. Thanks, once again, to all who participated. We hope to be posting more info about our next event, soon!

CALL FOR ARTISTS - What We Knew When We Were Small

Announcing a Call for Artists!

What We Knew When We Were Small is the first group art show curated by and including the work of the founding members of Poppy & Prime, a California-based artist collective founded right here in Los Angeles. The art show will take place on Thursday, September 20th, at a venue in Downtown Los Angeles. Some proceeds from the show will be donated to charity.

What about your childhood do you remember?
Are your earliest and fondest memories of childhood vivid or vague?
How did you perceive the world when you were a kid?
What things do you miss the most? Want to convey to others?
What or who shaped you the most when growing up?

We are looking for artists that are willing to show works that reflect or represent the above themes, in any format. To apply to be an artist in the show, reply in the Comments section below and include a link to your work (website, portfolio, tumblr, Facebook, blog, etc.). You can also email cheryl@cherylpanlilio.com with your info. Artists of all disciplines are welcome to apply. Entries are due by August 24th.

We will contact artists directly, so don't forget to include a way we can reach you. For those accepted and who choose to exhibit, a $25 fee is required to be a part of the show, to cover venue costs. All artwork for the show must be completed prior to Tuesday, September 18th (so we can prep the space and provide previews of your work), and no single piece can measure larger than 20 square feet total. We'll post a follow-up about the call after the 24th.

Thanks, and share the call on your Facebook page, Twitter feed, or any other social media you use. Just telling your friends about it in-person works, too!

I'm excited to announce I'm starting a new artist collective. Although starting with SoCal artists, the idea is to get people from all over the state to get together and exhibit artwork, hopefully for a good cause, too.

Here's the spiel:

Art. For Good. Poppy & Prime is a California-based artist collective bringing together creators fromd ifferent disciplines, dedicated to cultivating interest and respect for the arts and to raising money for charity.

That's it... for now and not for long! We'll start posting artist bios and website links, as well as other cool things like a Call for Artists for our first exhibition. Stay tuned!
