Ahh, the year is coming round is time, my friends, to begin preparing for the weirdfest that is Hunter's Moon. Its an exciting time as we figure out who is coming, where they are going and what they are doing. Preparations have begun, meetings have been had, notes have been scribbled lest they be forgotten, and babies have run screaming from one room to another. (And all at the same time.)

There is a call-out below for those of you inclined that way. You can see more of last year's art trail here and the previous year's here. And here is a link to the festival site for good measure.
Come out you strange artists! Crawl from beneath the carpet and make your merry way to Carrick on Shannon!

Hunter's Moon Festival Art Trail is seeking submissions from artists in all disciplines

Hunter’s Moon is an intimate festival that gathers together an eclectic mix of outer and experimental art, film, sound, workshops and music across the town of Carrick on Shannon, Co. Letirim.  Returning for its third year with a line-up that will include Rhys Chatam (USA), Paul Metzger (USA), Consumer Electronics (UK), Zomes (USA & Sweden), Jennifer Walshe (Ireland) plus a mix of international and Irish acts, Hunter’s Moon Festival embraces the outer boundaries in audio and visual and creates an engaging space for entertainment and creativity.

The Art Trail has been a vibrant part of the festival for the last two years. This year we are accepting submissions for work in any discipline and on any theme.

Selected artists’ work will be shown in various venues throughout the town, including vacant shops and The Dock Arts Centre, with a map of the art trail and a printed programme produced for festival-goers.

Applicants must be available to deliver and install their work during the week prior to the festival and to collect work on the Monday afterwards. Any work sold will be charged a commission of 15%.  Artists will be in charge of the transport, installation and deinstallation of their work.

The festival runs from the 25th to the 27th of October 2013.

Applicants must submit proposals by email to: huntersmoonart at gmail dot com 

Applications must be accompanied by a short artist’s statement, proposal of intended work/s with photographs where applicable, and examples of recent work – this can be image attachments c. 1MB in size or links to a website or blog.

For more info on the festival and last year’s art trail, including a map and programme, see under “Archive 2012”.

We look forward to hearing from you.
