Typography Show

Typography Show

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, February 24, 2018

The Exchange Gallery in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, invites work on the theme “typography”, with the interpretation of the theme entirely up to each artist. 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 26th of February, through Friday, the 6th of April, 2018.

The reception will take place 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, March 3rd, at the Exchange Gallery, 24 East Main Street, Bloomsburg.

The Gallery is a project of the non-profit Exchange, 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 our 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.

Elaine M. Erne, co-founder and co-director of Star Wheel Printers, received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  Erne’s drawings and prints have been featured in numerous invitational and juried national exhibitions. The Lives and Traumas of Stuffed Animals is a series of comically disturbing depictions of Mr. Bunny and his friends under siege. The series is made up of very large graphite pencil drawings, woodblocks, etchings, and lithographs. Although there is a playful side, the underlining theme is fear, cruelty, and survival.  In recurring distressful situations people often become like dolls, presenting a steady happy personae no matter what is happening.  Though the circumstances represented in the work are not real, no stuffed animals were hurt in the making of the work, they capture the aura that surrounds a person who has no control but will not give in.
