“The Melting Pot”

“The Melting Pot”

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, July 8, 2017

For the first time at the Exchange Gallery in Bloomsburg, Pa., this show will have a juror, and also for the first time The Exchange will offer prizes – $200, $100, and $50 for the top three pieces, as well as a “People’s Choice” award as chosen by the attendees at the reception. Richard Rinehart, director of the Samek Art Museum at Bucknell University, will serve as our juror.

As with all of its open-call shows, The Exchange encourages participation by artists of all ages and levels of experience, accepting all media, two- and three-dimensional, including video pieces and sculptural installations, with the interpretation of the theme entirely up to each artist. The only restriction: The Work must fit through our front door.

Artists will pay a $10 entry fee for up to three pieces; artists wishing to enter more pieces may do so, paying an additional entry fee for each three pieces. The Exchange Gallery guarantees that at least one piece from every entry will get displayed. The Exchange will accept artwork at the Gallery, 24 East Main Street, Bloomsburg, during the two weeks beginning the 26th of June; on Saturday, the 8th of July, the Gallery will open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to accept the last work, and the Gallery committee will hang the show that afternoon.

Artists, please price your work for sale: The Gallery takes a 20% commission on all sales and returns 80% to the artists, and the Gallery has responsibility for collecting and remitting sales tax. “Not For Sale” work accepted as well.

The show will run from Monday, the 10th of July, through Friday, the 18th of August, with the artists’ reception on Saturday, the 15th of July, from 6 to 8 p.m. (simultaneous with the Artspace Gallery’s reception for their show “Bridges”, around the corner on Center Street).

Questions? Please call 570-317-2596 or e-mail Exchange@ExchangeArts.org.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.
