Alter [awl-ter] verb (used with object) 1. to make different in some particular, as size, style, course, or the like; modify: to alter a coat; to alter a will; to alter course. 2. to castrate or spay. Okay, let’s not go that far...lol!
Do you have a pair of shoes, a single shoe because the mate misteriously disappeared? Are you willing to sacrafice a pair you just love and can’t part with, maybe give it a little facelift, update or a complete re-vamp? Let’s not discriminate here, we like other forms of footwear too...bring on the boot, sneaker or perhaps a slipper? There are no limits as to how far you can take this idea. Just put the creative hat on and go to town!
Come share your work and enjoy other works inspired by the shoe (footwear). This is a show sale, which means, if you would like to sell your work add the price with your submission or if you just can’t part with this new creation, then just show it off and submit as NFS.
Works accepted for this show are up to two pieces in any 2-D (painting, mixed-media), 3-D medium. Perhaps you would also like to incorporate a pedestal if you have that one stray shoe?
Showing: Sat., Sept. 13 thru Sat., Oct. 11, 2014 Place: ACE Room C Gallery at the Quadrant (2nd floor)
Works must be accompanied with Artist Name and Contact Information. Along with description, medium used and price. Example: Robina Middleton - robinax_designs@ yahoo.com “Down by the Sea Shore” mixed-media, shells, sand, pearls, glass, lace, etc. $00.00

The Lehigh Valley Vanguard:
“The Lehigh Valley Vanguard is a progressive visual and literary symposium of Lehigh Valley intellectuals and artists. We try to feature narratives that speculate on the state of our current society and the betterment of its future: locally and globally.”
What we are looking for:
We are currently seeking visual art work, op-eds, book reviews, short fiction and poetry that fits the mission of the publication for inclusion in our introductory issue, launching April 2014.
The Vanguard is primarily an online publication. However, in an attempt to preserve the intellectual culture of our time in an archive, with every online issue 100 print copies will be issued. This will serve as a time capsule of our regional, progressive intellectual culture.
Op-eds and book reviews should be around 1500 words. Short fiction will be evaluated case-by-case.
Poetry should be around 200 lines or less.
Art work should be submitted with an artist statement and a description of the artwork.
This is an opportunity for subversive artists and writers seeking an outlet in alternative new media. The Vanguard is sponsored and cross promoted by Raging Chicken Press.
Deadline to submit: March 17th, 2014
