Call for Art: Untitled.jpg
April 7 - May 7, 2016

Call for Art:
Untitled.jpg

“the relationship between what we see and what we know is never settled.” John Berger

Photographers don't always present straightforward images of what they see. In this exhibition we examine how the evolving techniques of photographic manipulation have allowed photographers to create alternate realities, new identities, convey messages, and tell stories.

Co-curators Meghan Maloney and Wannita Makaroon explore the ways artist manipulate the photographic medium and how people understand images in our tech savvy society. Today’s audiences are aware of a photographer’s tools, Photoshop, collage, negative sandwiching, filters and more. How does this affect the relationship between what we see and what we know?

The exhibit, Untitled.jpeg, will be shown at the Pierro Gallery in South Orange, New Jersey
April 7- May 7 2016.

Artists who use photography as an integral part their practice are invited to submit relevant materials in the following format to be considered for inclusion. There is no fee for applying, however all transportation and special installation requirements are at the artist’s expense.

1. 5 digital images or videos (original artwork will not be accepted for review)
2. An Artist Statement describing how the work relates to the theme.

Call for Art: Sharing an Obsession for Collecting
September 17 - October 17, 2015

 "Sharing an Obsession for Collecting"

Has your art collection expanded beyond your ability to fully enjoy it? "Sharing an Obsession for Collecting" is a curated exhibition and sale of works from private collectors who wish to hone their collections while sharing their passion for collecting. A portion of all sales will go towards expanding public art programming in the community.

 

Co-curators Susan Napack, Susan Evans Grove, and Sylvia Taylor explore the objects that bring us joy while discovering how a collector’s vision evolves over time. A goal of the exhibition is to inspire a love of collecting in new collectors and provide an opportunity for current collectors to sell some of their work in a gallery setting.

 

The curators are looking primarily for art, but will consider other unique and creative collections. All items will be for sale; 50% of proceeds will go towards expanding public art programming in the community.

 

Public programming related to the exhibition will include a walk-through tour to share and discus the vision of the collector and a panel discussion about legacy planning for artists and collectors.

 

The exhibition, "Sharing an Obsession for Collecting", will be shown at the Pierro Gallery in South Orange, New Jersey Thursday September 17- Saturday, October 17.
