“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.

Constance Culpepper is a contemporary artist located in Philadelphia, PA (USA). Her large, vibrantly colored oil paintings primarily depict domestic scenes, including interiors, still life, the female figure, and chairs. The paintings are representational, yet deconstructed, and full of pattern. With her paper collages, Culpepper is more abstract, yet the themes of domesticity can still be found.
