From Atim Oton, owner of Calabar Imports:
"After the and after we rebuild, I am a PHOENIX....so, I plan to curate an exhibition called PHOENIX RISING and I am Seeking Artists for a RELAUNCH/REOPENING EXHIBITION at Calabar Imports.
"Phoenix represents a REBIRTH
"A mythical bird that never dies, the Phoenix flies far ahead to the front, always scanning the landscape and distant space. It represents our capacity for vision, for collecting sensory information about our environment and the events unfolding within it. The Phoenix, with its great beauty, creates intense excitement and deathless inspiration."
Tentative Dates: August 15 - September 30, 2011
Please send an artist statement, 3 images to be considered for the exhibition. More details firstname.lastname@example.org
