Calling all artists, please submit your work to Ground Floor Gallery + Studios’ 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibition–Rhythm and Rush! We are honored to have those juried by Catherine Haggarty. As always, selected artists will be chosen for the gallery show and ‘Best of Show’ chosen from those will receive a solo exhibition. New this year, at least one image of ALL artists that submit will be included in a bound photo book Ground Floor presents to Catherine Haggarty as a gift.
– Rhythm and Rush seeks to find work that provokes movement, atmosphere, and speed in both conceptual and formal ways within all media. The ways in which the picture frame is questioned, expanded or uniquely considered while being provocative, contemporary and personal are elements of this show concept. The juror, Catherine Haggarty is curious about the ways in which the speed of image consumption, and image promotion affects artists today – or the ways in which it does not affect them. Rhythm and Rush is an open consideration to the lens in which we all are living and working in. Slow, fast, static, haptic, and rhythmic can be presented in many ways – we are seeking works that touch on these ideas in very specific, sensitive and strong ways.
Final submission deadline is July 15th, 2018. Rhythm and Rush will run from September 1st-October 20th, 2018. Notification for inclusion in gallery show August 1st. Work needs to be delivered by August 15th, ready to hang.
