Appleton Creative designed the Appleton Awareness Gallery to raise awareness and support for local causes through art. For the upcoming exhibit, Appleton is enlisting the creative expertise of local traditional medium artists to highlight the youth supported by the Zebra Coalition. The Zebra Coalition is a network of organizations that provide services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and all youth (LGBT+) ages 13 to 24.
As a community-driven organization, we’re opening our exhibit to local artists to help raise awareness for the Zebra Coalition’s cause and for the artistic community as a whole. The work chosen for the gallery should be relevant to the organization’s mission and make a powerful statement to the public about the Zebra Coalition. Art must meet the following requirements to be considered for entrance.
Please submit a digital image of your art to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, January 4, 2016. New works are preferred, and all artwork should relate specifically to the cause. In your submission email, please provide the following:
– Contact information

– Description of art should include your name and the name of the art piece. Also provide a written explanation about why this cause appeals to you, how it relates to the art or how you hope this piece of art impacts the youth at Zebra Coalition.
– Finished art pieces must be framed in a professional manner. If it is a painted piece on canvas, the sides must be painted or the piece must be framed.
