Call For Art for the 10th Annual DAMNED Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness

July 17, 2017 by

damned -adj. 1. condemned to eternal punishment.
2. detestable; loathsome. 3. complete; absolute
Within the word, it is easy to envision devils and hellfire. However, it also reflects the eternal condemnation of self and the subtle mind against itself. It may reflect the emotional trappings within the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps the binding tendrils of our deepest longings or deprivations.
DAMNED is an exhibition of those extraordinary artists who know that without darkness, there is no light, that beauty does reside within the repulsive and enlightenment within our darkest hours. This art may be the one true reflection of self that make us balanced within our personal damnations...or possibly it is an expressive visual therapy...or simply a sign that there is amazingly inexplicable inside without comparison.
Artists of all mediums from anywhere in the world are welcome to submit their work for DAMNED. There are no restrictions on genre or content but the more deeply personal and powerfully introspective, the better. There are no fees to submit and the deadline is September 13 2017.
For further information and to submit, please visit: www.thatdamnedshow.com/call
For further details on the DAMNED Exhibition, please visit "www.thatdamnedshow.com" or email us at "damned@thatdamnedshow.com".

Experience great art, groovy music, fantastic food and the best beer at the 6th Fine Art Fair! Local artists, artisans, music, and a grassroots community vibe is the focus of the annual event. The fair has moved to a new location this year, the greenspace across from the city's oldest local bar, The Stonehouse.

Saturday, August 12 from 10 am to 9 pm is the date and the fair is FREE to attend with free parking. Food will be provided by The Fargin Chef and local micro-brewed beer will be available.

40 visual art/artisans showcasing sculptures, jewelry, metalworks, and paintings will be featured – not mainstream product vendors - in order to keep the integrity as an “art fair.” Some of the many artists and artisans featured are Zacariah Messiah's unique spider art, Detroit-themed purses and art by Crafty Cop, handmade gothic jewelry from Creature Creations, photographer Laura Grimshaw, and the organizer of the Fair - artist Julie Fournier - will also display her paintings from her Smiling Eyes Studio.

Local music will also be showcased with 11 diverse acts performing during the day. The 2017 music line-up features hard rockers Liz and The Luckouts, metal from Blackmail, punky trio The Zotz, blues by Michigan Basement blues band, a Sex Pistols tribute band called Fabulous Disaster, and psychedelic art rockers Spaceband.

Liz and the Luckouts
The Detroit Fine Art Fair will be held on Saturday, August 12 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The NEW location is across the street from The Stonehouse Bar located at 19803 Ralston St. in Detroit.
