CALL TO ARTISTS: Surreal Salon IV - a nat'l juried exhibition
Presented by Baton Rouge Gallery center for contemporary art (BRGCCA), Surreal Salon IV is aimed at engaging audiences in a multi-sensory art experience and shedding light on the growing popularity, and exceptional quality of the pop-surrealist/lowbrow/contemporary surrealist movement. This exciting and irreverent movement has come to the forefront of American contemporary art in recent years and Surreal Salon IV will celebrate all the reasons why.

This exhibition will be held from January 3 26, 2012 at BRGCCA. All artists over the age of 18 living within the United States, its Commonwealths and Territories are eligible. Artists submitting work for consideration may do so one of two ways; either online at http://batonrougegallery.org/pages/sureal_salon.html or via mail (delivered to the gallery's street address). All submissions must be received by the gallery by midnight on November 17, 2011. Artists must review the Surreal Salon IV Prospectus to ensure compliance with all guidelines related to this exhibition.

On Saturday, January 21, 2012, BRGCCA will host a costumed soiree in honor of Surreal Salon IV from 7 11 p.m. This will be an exciting evening of visual art, live musical performances, surrealist games and costumed attendees channeling their own pop-surreal visions. The event will be held at BRGCCA inside Baton Rouge's historic City Park (1515 Dalrymple Dr.).

The work selected by the exhibition's juror as “Best in Show” will be displayed in an upcoming issue of BOTH Juxtapoz Magazine and Hi-Fructose Magazine. The artist's work will appear (w/ title, medium and dimensions listed) along with their name & website and will be recognized as “Best in Show” for Surreal Salon IV.

SPECIAL GUEST JUROR - CASEY WELDON
The Special Guest Juror for Surreal Salon IV is artist Casey Weldon. Currently a Southern California resident, Weldon graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. His unique works have ben exhibited in galleries throughout the U.S. including Gallery1988 (Los Angeles, CA), Trifecta Gallery (Las Vegas, NV), C.A.V.E. Gallery (Venice, CA) and Distinction Gallery (Escondido, CA) among others. Weldon's work has also been published in such notable publications as Juxtapoz Magazine, Hi-Fructose Magazine and Vanity Fair (Italy). Weldon's time is divided between commercial illustration work and his own distinctive fine art. The line between Weldon's commercial illustration work and his distinctive fine art sometimes blurs when he draws on widely recognized figures—as in his work for the “Quentin Vs. Coen” show (Bold Hype in New York City) and his off-kilter portraits of actor Bill Murray, “Murray Time.”
