There's a serious grip of opportunity with the

City of Tempe Community Galleries

. They're looking to fill

seven art shows at three different galleries


Interested? Read on to find out what you need to do before the deadline on Friday, October 29.

Application for the following costs a measly $20. The single fee covers multiple applications. All exhibitions will run in 2011.

Connections Café Gallery
This gallery wall is located at the Tempe Public Library in their on-site café. Your application may result in one of three shows scheduled throughout the year. There is no specified theme and artists will be chosen by a jury panel.

Tempe Public Library/Youth Library Gallery
Also located at the Tempe Public Library, this is the site's proper gallery (not just a wall). The art should relate to multiple age groups. Two shows are scheduled with the themes "Art of the Pencil" and "Eye Candy."

Tempe Post Office Gallery
This gallery offers some great exposure. The gallery is a small series of window displays at the post office on Mill Avenue. Four artists will be selected for each show. "Made by Hand" will display fine arts crafts pieces from March 11 to July 6 while "Photos of Tempe" will display, um, photos of Tempe from July 8 to November 2.
