CALL FOR ENTRIES: “Then and Now”

CALL FOR ENTRIES: “Then and Now”

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, August 11, 2018

The Exchange Gallery in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, invites work on the theme “Then and Now”.

This exhibition explores the changes that happen as time moves forward. They encourage artists to submit work that explores how their community, artwork, life, and various other circumstances have changed over time. Artwork can include side-by-side examples or single works that communicate the Then and the Now.

All media accepted, 2-D and 3-D, including video and installation pieces, as long as they fit through the front door. No entry fee. Please price your work for sale (“Not For Sale” work also accepted); artists receive 80% of the sale price, with the Exchange Gallery responsible for sales tax.

The show runs from Monday, the 13th of August, through Friday, the 28th of September, 2018.

The reception will take place 5-9 p.m. on Saturday, August 25th, at the Exchange Gallery, 24 East Main Street, Bloomsburg.

The Gallery is a project of the non-profit Exchange (ExchangeArts.org), run by a committee of artist volunteers to provide a venue through themed, open-call exhibitions and juried or invitational shows that offer exposure to ALL regional artists, regardless of age and level of experience. Gallery exhibitions are selected and scheduled by the Gallery committee and are generally on display for four to six weeks. Opening receptions are arranged in conjunction with other events in downtown Bloomsburg, especially Artspace Gallery openings, typically on Saturday evenings.

Most of their themed shows do not require any entry fee, and all artists’ work goes on display; only rarely do we have to “edit” for space considerations. Artists shipping work must provide return postage and have sole responsibility for any insurance.

Exhibiting artists must sign an exhibition agreement form that releases The Exchange from liability for any theft, damage, or loss. See http://mooseexchange.org/site/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Exchange-Exhibit-Agreement-7-20-16.pdf

Regular Gallery hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Mondays and Fridays, with other hours as posted on the Web site at https://www.exchangearts.org/calendar.

The ever-changing seascape and creatures are the subjects, and I marvel at the minute details, textures, and movements. Through my art, I visually capture an iconic creature engage viewers and remind them of our fragile marine environment.

Mindy Flexer makes magical realist, figurative, oil paintings. She uses observation and invention to explore identity and family relationships, and the way personal history resides within the larger arc of time. Her current work is about our extraordinary historical moment, when climate crisis threatens all life on earth, and climate justice offers the possibility of global transformation to a just and equitable world. Her visual language of a seamless world of people, animals, and place, is the language of the interconnection of all life on earth. Flexer’s paintings speak about climate in a language personal enough for people to hear it. Her goal is to inspire people to action. She hopes to connect people to themselves and each other, so each person can find their place in the mass movement necessary to create a sustainable future. In this way, she sees her paintings aspart of the great web of healing she deeply believes can save our planet.
