call for submissions: hot 1" action button show + swap

As we were leaving the ECI show, we ran into Jim from Hot 1" Action. I wanted to go to this event last year, but somehow missed it. Here are the deets:

Saturday May 27, 2006 (8-11pm)
Gallery Gachet, 88 E Cordova, Vancouver

Hot One Inch Action is the unique one night only show of original art, music and social interaction. We take 50 of Vancouver's hottest artists, Vancouver's hottest live music and DJs and Vancouver's hottest most discerning art audience and gather them under one roof. We present the original work of fifty different artists on one inch buttons. These one inch buttons are displayed on the gallery wall and the audience is offered the opportunity to buy randomly selected buttons in bags of five. If the bag purchased does not have the desired button, you are invited to trade with the people around you. How bad do you want that button? To help encourage the trading, there's live music from Trike and reasonably priced beverages.

We are now accepting submissions! The deadline is noon (12pm) on Friday May 12, 2006. It's free to submit and if your artwork is one of the 50 chosen, you will receive 5 FREE copies of your button — and be envied by all at Hot One Inch Action. Chosen artists will also have the option of ordering additional buttons.

Go here to submit a button design and for galleries from past years.
