**DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL MONDAY, MAY 4TH, 2009**
Happy Spring everyone!
On Friday, May 8th, 2009, Slideluck Potshow together with Eat-Ins.org and LeftSpace studio will present the chillest Bay Area arts event of the spring, Slideluck Potshow SF II. So pull out your iPhone, boot up your Blackberry, open up your Google Calendar, or page through your datebook and PUT THIS DOWN NOW. Seriously, if you miss this event, you'll be kicking yourself all year while your friends reminisce about "that awesome slideshow night."
And what is this Slideluck Potshow thing anyway? Well, it's a potluck slideshow. What else? Slideluck (as it's affectionately known) is a non-profit arts organization that provides an opportunity for artists and art-appreciators to gather together, eat free food, make new friends, and enjoy great art just because we can. Here's how things usually go: You show up with food and beverage . . . you talk to cool people about interesting things . . . then you watch an outstanding series of slideshows by photographers and artists from the Bay Area and beyond.
So where do the slideshows come from? You and people like you submit artwork! The SLPS SF II slideshow will feature emerging and established Bay Area photographers and artists along with a selection of international artists. The theme for this Slideluck is NOURISHMENT and photographers, painters, and artists of all kinds are encouraged to submit cohesive, creative, and thought-provoking pieces that speak to NOURISHMENT of all kinds — physical, spiritual, environmental, creative, etc. One half of the show will be unthemed, and General-topic entries will also be accepted. Please visit the Slideluck Potshow Network website (http://network.slideluckpotshow.com/group/slideluckpotshowsanfrancisco) for submission guidelines. Past contributors to Slideluck Potshow include: The Guggenheim Foundation, Elliott Erwitt, Todd Hido, Elinor Carucci, Martin Schoeller, Alec Soth, Chris Buck, Spencer Tunick, Martin Parr, Nina Berman, Vincent Laforet and many others.
The SLPS SF crew is excited to be collaborating with Eat-Ins.org, a resource that helps people organize and participate in Eat-Ins. Eat-Ins are also potlucks, designed to bring people together, to strengthen communities, and to broaden the food movement. To get people talking and thinking about the food we bring as well as the images we see, we are extending our theme of NOURISHMENT to food items also. We ask that you write down the ingredients of your dish for people with restricted diets -- and now we invite you to include an extra sentence about how the food you brought NOURISHES you, be it your grandmother's recipe, a favorite comfort snack, or super brain food.
