Whitehot Magazine sponsors for myartspace.com London Calling 2009 Competition
Palo Alto, CA-- myartspace.com, an online venue for contemporary art, has announced a partnership with Internationally-based Whitehot Magazine for the site’s upcoming juried art competition, London Calling 2009. London Calling is an art competition open to artists worldwide. The competition involves a juror panel from The Tate Modern, The Hayward Gallery, and the Barbican Gallery all in London. Fifty finalists will be selected and three winners will have their work represented at the Scream London in June 2009.
Located in the heart of the West London art district, Scream London is just a moment away from Sotheby's, Cork St and the Royal Academy, and rubs shoulders with some of London's most established art galleries in the traditional hub of the capital's art market. The gallery is run by Tyrone Wood, son of Ronny Wood of The Rolling Stones, as curator. Scream is focused on contemporary art. The Scream Team has quickly developed a reputation as being an innovative gallery. Scream has exhibited works by Robert Indiana, Matty Small, Ingrid Baars, Rene Ricard, David Montgomery, among other artists. Notable guests and patrons have included Tracey Emin, Claire Danes, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Beverly Knight, Meg Mathews, and Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones.

The coupon will be offered through the magazine’s site, www.whitehotmagazine.com from April 21 through the contest deadline of May 15th.
