And you should be a part of it. Let’s discuss.
“‘Water is the driving force in nature.’
― Leonardo da Vinci
Sometimes called the element of life, water can exist in its three forms: liquid, solid, and gas. For centuries, artists have been drawn to water. It can be a varied muse, and even ingredient, in artwork. The Fort Point Arts Community seeks submission of artwork in all media in which water plays a central role.”
Exhibition Dates: December 23, 2013 – March 28, 2014
Opening Reception: TBD, January
Where: Gallery at Atlantic Wharf , 290 Congress Street, Boston Massachusetts
Submission Deadline: Wednesday December 11, 2013 (midnight)
That being said, I know firsthand that Drawn to Water is a great opportunity to show your work in a highly trafficked area. Where some galleries are lucky to have ten visitors a day, your creations will be seen by hundreds of bustling business folk in the financial district.
In addition to the gallery space, there are also four prominent walls(hint: great for larger work) where art can be displayed in the building’s indoor atrium.
Just think, some millionaire could look up from their quinoa salad and say, “Hey, I need that amazing piece for my home!”
Stranger things have happened.
Other items of note:
- The gallery can accommodate all sorts of media-paintings, sculpture, video, installation, and they even have two 2x2x2’ pedestals available with
bonnetsprotective cases for books and smaller works
- All work is insured by the space
- There is an honorarium for participating artists
- Less sexy details regarding install, framing, and eligibility can be found in the press release.
I know the deadline for Drawn to Water is next week, but this could be a really fun show!
Dig deep, it’s time to share your watery works with the world. ♥
