Dig (Bound Brook, NJ)

This Deadline Expired: Monday, February 19, 2018

March 18th to April 26th., 2018
Opening Reception Sunday, March 18th, 2 to 5 pm
Existentially these are challenging times for free thinkers. We are continually bombarded with information designed to influence our every thought, feeling, and action. With perfect algorithmic efficiency, a trepidatious flow of tweets, alternative facts and fake news exudes an overwhelming sense of disturbing uneasiness. The lines between relevancy and irrelevancy, understanding and confu- sion, sense and nonsense disappear, as does trust, leaving us in a state of starvation for the truth. Fortunately for artists, our right to
free speech is still intact, so we can seek out the truth and DIG DEEPER.
For this juried exhibition we’re asking artists to define the idea of digging in any way, shape, or form. Some suggestions might include: exploration, research and analysis, investigation, excavation, as in mining, fracking, drilling etc., gardens, shovels, tunnels, pits and pipelines, of course bones, graves, buried treasure, dirt, and assorted holes of all sorts are welcome. As always, all media is accepted.
Eligibility
1. Exhibition is open to residents 18 years or older, living in NY, NJ and PA.
2. All media will be considered and must be original and by the artist.
3. We prefer that work be hand delivered to the gallery, but will accept pre-paid shipment of work preferably through the Post Office with return packaging to and from the gallery.

Relationships
(I always say) are never easy:
especially those between
color, shape, texture, space . . .
and tension.
The relationship of the part to the part,
the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
what materials I use is all important.
I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
pieces to help communicate a connection
between the individual and
the universal whole.

In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
printing press plates which I sand,
cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
about energy and light, patterns and
motion, all influenced by the microcosm
of life forms, biology, and a
hint of satire.
