Call and Registration for Connections: Work in a Series


Rob Glebe Series

Connections: Work in a Series

Warhol’s cans, O’Keefe’s pelvis bones, Monet’s haystacks all announce the artists’ intrigue with their subjects through series. It has been said that creating a series allows each individual piece to stand on its own while simultaneously relating to the rest of the others in some manner. Working in this way, in distinct purposeful directions, is not about repetition but rather about being able to explore issues, themes, compositions, form, or concepts in progressively deeper and relational ways.

RiverArts announces their September Exhibition,  “Connections: Work in a Series” on these very ideas. Co-Curators Rob Glebe and Marianne Sade invite artists of all media, with the exception of photography, to register on line.

Artists are encouraged to apply early and may submit  3 to 5 pieces in your series, with a maximum width per piece of 24”.  The curators would also like each artist to include a short statement (300 word limit) on, “What makes this a series..” These statements will be published and displayed  on the wall along with your artwork.

Please note that the exhibition curators have the right to refuse works due to possible gallery space limitations. This show is a little different because of the potential scale of some work. If working larger scale please contact the gallery so curators may plan the space.

Entry fees are: $7 per piece for RiverArts members and $14 for non-members.

Submission Deadline: August 12, 2019 **
Acceptance Notification August 18, 2019
**Although this is not a juried show, the curators need time to insure that work submitted adheres to the theme,
and time to plan the exhibit.
