Do you like to draw, or paint, or just sketch and doodle? Well, if you do, you will want to enter this art contest sponsored by The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – The Abbey of St.Joan and Vermillion Art Gallery for a chance to have your art featured on the Sisters’ “Condom Saviour” packaging!
All artistic skill levels are encouraged to participate. In the Sisters’ spirit of non-judgment and fundraising, the winner will be determined by how much money a particular submission can raise through direct donation and silent auction. Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned popularity contest, huh?
Beginning October 1st, 2011 artists can register (with donation) and pick up their submission packets at Vermillion. Submission packets will contain a list of rules, image requirements, a release form and a canvas. Vermillion is located at 1508 11th Ave, Seattle.
Submissions are due by November 5th, 2011.
This is an all-age contest and event. There is no cover charge. Donations at the door will be gladly accepted. Artists under 18 will need a parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to enter.
All proceeds from “OMG! Who Arted?” go the Sisters’ “Play Fair!” program.
In 1982 as San Francisco’s health scene had hit crisis levels, registered nurses Sister Florence Nightmare and Sister Roz Erection joined with a team of Sisters and medical professionals to create “Play Fair!”, the first safer sex pamphlet to use plain sex-positive language, practical advice and humor to educate people on the responsibility of their sexual health.
The Abbey of St.Joan continues the duty of teaching the message that everyone has a responsibility to themselves and their sex partners to stay safe and Play Fair. “Condom Saviors” and “Passion Packs” carry supplies and helpful information, all of which are free for the asking.
