Shift Space on MySpace

Hey, we're on MySpace now!

I'm trying to get the page up and working on a level similar to the blog but right now I'm getting the ubiquitous MySpace "unexpected error" message every time I try to post something.  Anyway, add us to your friends please.

I'd make the URL more specific, but due to the necessity of thinking ahead I don't want to do that just yet.

And don't forget to come to the opening this Friday, and of course remember Annette still needs submissions for the October show (scroll down for info).

Muddy muddy...

Shift Space X Photos Added!

Sort of...

I've got some of the pictures of the work up, I'll get to the rest as soon as I can and I'll try to get names up as well (TypePad sort of makes doing that rather time consuming though).  I've also got pictures from the reception that I'll post as soon as I can get them all scanned and formatted and everything, and I'll put together a new banner as soon as I go out and buy a new mouse for my computer.

Okay, we good?  Stop complaining.

Oh and don't forget about the call for entries that is still going on for next month's show.  I'd host a .pdf entry form, but it doesn't seem that TypePad wants to let me do that, so just contact Annette.


Call for entries! That means you!

Happily Ever After: An Art Exhibition and Benefit for PALS Animal Rescue

Friday, October 27 through Saturday, November 11, 2006

Artists working in all media are invited to submit up to three entries for the benefit exhibition Happily Ever After: An Art Exhibition and Benefit for PALS Animal Rescue to be held at the WSU Shift Space Gallery, 326 S. Commerce, Friday, October 27 through Saturday, November 11, 2006.  Works submitted for consideration should explore themes related to both the necessity for rescue organizations such as PALS in contemporary society as well as the mission of PALS to carefully match the personalities of animals with the lifestyles of their potential families to create a successful living environment for both pets and people.  Potential subjects might include documentation of unique pet personalities, examinations of the benefits and/or threats of human-animal relationships, narratives on the joys and challenges of living with pets, commentaries on animal abuse or recent political legislation to protect animals, or investigations of pets and pet products as accessories or commodities in the modern market.

Artists should submit entries for consideration as digital images on a CD accompanied by the completed application form which can be obtained by contacting Dr. Annette LeZotte via e-mail at or via phone at 978-7710.

CDs and application forms should be mailed to Dr. Annette LeZotte, Wichita State University, Schoolof Art and Design, 1845 Fairmount Box 67, Wichita, KS 67260-0067.
