Play + Inspire Gallery Winter 2020-21 Juried Open Call

Play + Inspire Gallery Winter 2020-21 Juried Open Call

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, December 13, 2020

How are you seeing change, coping with change, and being a change-maker? This broad yet timely question guides curation of this show.

All artists are invited to submit their work for consideration to a Virtual Exhibition curated by artist and educator Chloe Alexander at Play + Inspire Gallery. This online platform is a curatorial collaboration between Rebecca Potts of Teaching Artist Podcast and Maria Coit of Curated for Kids. The online exhibit aims to be an internationally accessible 24/7, curated, professional, virtual presentation of exciting contemporary work from around the world. The show is promoted via social media, email list, and additional network contacts. Each artist is also highlighted individually on social media.

All submissions will be considered for social media, podcast interviews, blog, and future opportunities.

Accepted artists will be invited to share a brief video of their process and concepts, which will be included on their artist page. Videos are NOT required, but are an added bonus – a way for you to share more about your work with their audience.

8 Artists will also be invited to do an instagram live studio visit!

They will be creating several lesson plans based on the themes in the show and on individual works in the show.

Artists who are not juried into the show will receive feedback on their submission.

Karen Hunter McLaughlin is a lifelong Philadelphia artist who has worked in traditional 2-D mediums as well as steel wire sculpture. Current work themes are a congruence of large format, multilayer prints creating 2-D inhabitable virtual-vistas, and a collection of smaller prints that focus on human connection, much like the ripple effect of a stone thrown in water.

Stuart Lehrman's  practice involves dialogue between order and chaos. Constantly experimenting with the physical properties of paint,  between adding and subtracting, making and unmaking, working to a place where he loses control of the painting and then struggling back to achieve the right balance between wild spontaneity and emotional restraint.
