A juried Group Show with Grand Prize: a Solo Show at Atlantic Gallery in NYC’s Chelsea art district.
Atlantic Gallery, located in the historic Landmark Arts Building in Chelsea NYC, invites artists to submit work for the upcoming juried show, Tenuous Threads. All of life is connected through networks, systems, fibers, and webs. Communication (visual, verbal, electrical, chemical, and kinetic) enables an exchange of information amongst all life forms. Tenuous Threads alludes to the delicate lines that bring us together and sets us apart; that joins us yet repels us. We are seeking innovative artworks that utilize textiles, fibers, threads (natural and synthetic) in sculpture, collage, 3D, and 2D mixed media that communicates the strength and fragility of what binds all life. The juror, Patricia Miranda, will award one artist a grand prize of a one-week solo show at Atlantic Gallery at a future date. A PDF catalog of the exhibition will be available.
Artists are invited to submit artwork, 2D or 3D, which stretches the boundaries of textile and fiber techniques. Mixed media, painting, collage, and sculpture are acceptable and must incorporate a textile/fiber component. Work may not exceed 40” in any direction and must be ready to hang/mount. The cost of submission is $35 for three works and $5.00 for each additional work up to a total of five images.
