Queering the arts - Gay City Health Project plans new eclectic art series

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

In September, Gay City Health Project will unveil its first season of Gay City Arts, 'UpClosePersonal.'

The intent of the project is to present challenging, dynamic, and excellent Queer art across a wide range of disciplines. Gay City invites LGBT artists to present their work in the group's new performance space, the Calamus Auditorium.

Through Gay City Arts, Gay City collaborates with local LGBT artists to galvanize an audience for Queer arts, foster the development of LGBT artists, and facilitate artistic excellence that is accessible, including the promotion of new works.

Currently, Gay City has put out a request for proposals in search of artists that are willing to get 'up close and personal.'

According to Gay City Marketing and Communications Manager Robert Roth, theater, dance, performance art, music, spoken word, film, video, new media, and interdisciplinary projects are all welcome.

EIGHT TO BE CHOSEN
Gay City officials tell Seattle Gay News that the Gay City Arts Curating Council will select eight artists to be featured in the first season of Gay City's new program.

The council is made up of five local Queer artists: Syniva Whitney, Nick Sahoyah, Cody Blomberg, Sean Ryan, and Manny Cawaling. They are looking for the first set of artists to be the inspiration and the vision for future endeavors of Gay City Arts.

'We're very excited about the launch of our first official Gay City Arts season,' said Peter Jabin, Gay City's deputy director. 'With 'UpClosePersonal,' Gay City stays on the cutting edge of building LGBT health and wellness through the arts.'

WEDNESDAY WORKSHOP
Gay City Arts will host a workshop for artists on Wednesday, June 12, from 5 to 7 p.m., where artists can get more information about the program as well as see the Calamus Auditorium - the space that they may get to work with. It is located in the Pike/Pine corridor of Seattle, which was recently recognized by ArtPlace as one of the top 12 art communities in America. The auditorium has been used by organizations such as Washington United for Marriage, the Northwest Network, and the Queer Teen Ensemble Theatre. It will also be available as a community space for other organizations while serving as the home for the Gay City Arts season.

DON'T DELAY
Gay City Arts will be accepting proposals until Sunday, July 7. This is an opportunity to propose performances and events that showcase the Queer experience. Heartfelt, challenging, hilarious, experimental - the possibilities are endless. Out of the eight artists chosen in total, four will be 'presented' by Gay City. Those four will have full access to Gay City's gallery space, with all costs covered. The remaining artists will have their projects be 'sponsored' by Gay City. The sponsored artists will get the use the space at a reduced rate and receive marketing support for their projects as part of the Gay City Arts season.
