CALL FOR ENTRIES FOR REINVENTION II !!  An OPEN WALLS Exhibition at ARC Gallery

Coming in November to ARC Gallery.   To celebrate our move to a new location on in the West Town Arts District on Chicago Ave., we invite artists to submit small works—no more than 15 inches wide— to our open-walls exhibit  REINVENTION II.

You are invited to exhibit your work and join us for the 45th year celebration of our new gallery space,  Reinvention II, an Open Walls Exhibition.  Once a year we open our gallery for artists to exhibit their work with many other artists. This is an opportunity for emerging artists, young artists, first exhibitors and experienced artists to show new ideas and experimentations together, and to create an exhibition with a wonderfully diverse array of work.  In the past these kind of shows  have  been very successful exhibitions, with a wide range of art, all expressing a visual voice.

While we are Reinventing ourselves with our new space and location, we invite artists to join us in this opportunity to Reinvent their work and show their artwork in a professional exhibition space. All entries will be exhibited that follow the criteria laid out in the application form.  This is the chance for artists to show young ideas, experimentation, polished work, and for emerging artists to exhibit their work. All who have a visual voice and use art as an expression of their experiences are invited to participate.

Please join us for this exciting exhibition of visual expression consisting of all levels and ages and  help celebrate our 45th year as a women-run, non-profit, alternative arts space!

Please be sure to fill out the application below,  so we know you’re exhibiting with us.

Deadline for Applications now Extended to May 27 Pride and Prejudice: Gender Realities in the 21st Century

Prospectus and application form

GENDER—perhaps the most essential aspect of one’s person— has transcended the binary ideas of the past, evolving into complex conceptions about identity and sexuality. While contemporary gender expression has created space for empowerment and freedoms for many, it remains confusing for some, wrong-headed for others, and a topic that is continually fascinating to the media. Many welcome this attention and the progress it bodes; but it has also resulted in pain, harassment, and discrimination for others.

ARC, established as a woman-run gallery 45 years ago, continues to embrace and honor the various struggles associated with belonging to a particular gender. Because of this mission, the gallery is calling for entries to a juried exhibition entitled “Pride and Prejudice” which will open in June 2018–the same month as the Pride Parade in Chicago. We are looking for artists’ work that reacts to the pride inherent in belonging to any gender (or not), as well as work that explores the pain, struggle or prejudice that can result from embracing one’s identity. We invite artists of all genders to apply to this exhibition, documenting their own unique experiences in creative dialogue. An array of gender and gender expressions are welcome.

Work for this exhibition will be juried by Oli Rodriguez, an interdisciplinary artist who teaches photography at the School of the Art Institute, and whose work can be seen at www.olirodriguez.com

Submissions may include two or three-dimensional pieces as well as video, spoken word, or performance pieces.

Expanding on the extraordinary response to our first “It Figures” juried show in 2016, ARC Gallery will re-visit this subject for an open-walls show this December. The exciting breadth and quality of work submitted for the first figurative review suggests that representational art is indeed thriving in the contemporary art world. This new (part 2) show seeks 1) to expand the call to include more broadly defined figuration–not necessarily confined just to the human body, and 2) to open the gallery to all artists/submissions. We expect this exhibition will be an exciting and eclectic collection of works reflecting the myriad ways in which artists conceive contemporary figurative imagery.

Added benefit! This show goes up right before Thanksgiving and will be open almost until Christmas, so it is perfectly timed for holiday giving and sales. And ARC does not take a commission on sales.
