Call for Phoenix Artists: The Hive Looking for Coronado Neighborhood Creatives

Residents of the historic Coronado District are usually pretty proud to tell you where they live. The neighborhood located just outside downtown Phoenix is home to 1920s bungalows and 1940s ranch homes, one of the larger city parks, plus a plethora of diverse businesses and residents, including artists.

In recognition of its talented neighborhood artists, The Hive is looking for Coronado-based creative types to showcase their work at the "2013 Greater Coronado Art Show," which will open on Third Friday this September.

The gallery is part of a multi-use, repurposed mid-century building that includes micro-businesses as well as artist studios.

Submissions for the Coronado show are accepted through August 3. Artists must live in Phoenix south of Thomas Road, north of Interstate 10, and between Seventh and 20th streets.

There's no cost to submit work, which should be less than a year old and never publicly shown previously.

Artists can include up to three JPEG files (1000x size maximum) in an email to [email protected]. Those selected will be notified by e-mail no later than August 18.
