New members of the Plastic Club step into the spotlight at the club’s Annual New Members Show. The New Members Show allows each of 2017’s latest members — 18 in all — to display up to five works. The usual size restrictions are relaxed, with a 48″ maximum dimension. The new members work in many media, ranging from traditional forms like painting and drawing, to photography, and videography. The show runs from January 7 to January 25. The opening will be Sunday, January 7, from 2-5 PM.
Admission is free. The works are on display in the Plastic Club and can be viewed at the Opening and by appointment.
Artists apply for membership to the Plastic Club by providing samples of their work to the Plastic Club Board, which then votes on whether to grant membership.
The Plastic Club, located on quaint, historic Camac Street, was founded in 1897 to support art and artists. Back in 1897, “Plastic” meant in-progress or changeable.
