Hello and thank you all for your generosity and desire to submit a print to our online print sale for Life Support Japan.
Because of the overwhelming response to our call, the gallery is getting submissions every few minutes, we have currently over 200 artists waiting in the que to go up onto the site. We will be rotating works over the coming days. We hope to catch up enough in the next few days to be able to warn you when your print will be released.
This is what we are asking artists who wish to participate to commit to -
Produce an edition of 10 images, on paper no larger than 8.5x11. I am asking you to produce the prints. If you cannot, please contact us and we will see if we can help out on that. I cannot at this time say that will happen, so we are asking for you to commit to producing the images.
to send us a jpg - we ask for the following information and format.
jpg label - artist last name_title_year.jpg
we need the Title of the image, Date produced and how the print will be printed.
please send the jpg to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will only ask for the printed materials if they sell. The gallery will contact you and ask you to send them to us in Santa Barbara where we will pack and ship them to the purchasers.
if you have any questions about this - please contact us via email. I can't handle all the phone calls for this and the gallery business. We will get back to you, but it may take us a few hours.
We plan on having this be a long term project, not a short term fix to help Japan. To this end we have a website that we are producing, life-supportphoto.com. Because this happened so quickly, we haven't yet finished the website. When we do, we will let you all know.
Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this huge outpouring of support in this effort to help.
I am so grateful to be part of this tremendously generous community.
