May 21 – September 14, 2019
Reception Sept 14, 2019 4 -6 PM
A Call to prepare you for The Call.
Things will settle for a while now that the December shows are up and opened. Tricia O’Neill has a reception on January 4th which is first Friday. We will ready John Reuter’s Exhibition for a January 10th open and a Jan 17th reception. “Abstraction Attraction” is opened and title cards are up and ready for you. The show runs until May 5th with a gallery talk and reception then too as part of “Art Week”.
I thought I would talk a bit about the next exhibition opportunity for the Lafayette City Center Gallery to give all time to prepare for submissions. Earlier we talked about a word and image opportunity. The response was huge but I soon realized I can’t pull it off with the presentations we wanted to do. Instead, this is what I propose:
The idea of the exhibition will be that 2 people submit together as 1 submission. You may submit as 2 photographers, a photographer and a poet (or writer), 2 poets, a poet and a writer, 2 writers. Get what I’m saying? The unit of 2 submit as a pairing or 1 submission. And what is submitted (the pairing) is somehow connected. The connection could be that they are made or chosen because each responds to the other in some way. The topic could be the unifier. It is the collaborative dialogue I am looking for. Is your mother tongue the photograph or written word. You decide and find your collaborator and submit together.
We can’t find your counterpart for you, though. We will however assemble an exhibition from submissions that fit the space. I would say in early March I will be asking to receive the submissions. And by mid March we will know which collaborators will be in the exhibit. And the exhibit will open after “Abstraction Attraction” closes in May. Does it all make sense? The work submitted must be created by those who submit together.
As usual the Griffin can not pay for your printing, framing nor shipping to and fro. No submission fee as usual for LCC shows.
Ask me questions if I have not been clear on the concept.
