Beyond:  Opening Reception Fri.  May 31, 6-9pm

In the series “Beyond” the images are meant to imply, to suggest, or to infer. Each environment is unique and the image aims at transcending the immediate setting into another realm. The viewer is invited to enter this territory and discover a new dimension.

These images seek to evoke mood, tension, and the unknown. While much of my work is rooted in reality, this series starts from a specific location but ends somewhere else. We live in times where the issue of what is real and what is not real is thrust upon us. This work invades this terrain.

Opening Reception, Friday, May 31, 6:00-9:00pm

  • Exhibition dates: May 29 – June 22, 2019 
  • Gallery hours: Wed – Sat 12-6 pm,  Sun 12-4 pm  

NEW OPPORTUNITIES AT ARC !!

ARC Gallery is expanding its arts capacity. While ARC will continue to show quality contemporary art in its main gallery area, the gallery is looking to offer additional affordable options for artists who work in other mediums. Artists with cutting edge ideas looking for affordable space are encouraged to explore these new opportunities. ARC is a women-run cooperative gallery committed to the support of emerging artists. All genders, ages, and ethnicities are welcome.

PERFORMANCE ART:

The new gallery space has a stage! Options for utilizing this part of the gallery include highlighting one or more performance artists at one of our monthly exhibition openings; or a performance event featuring several – or longer –  performance pieces. Pricing: $40 for a performance lasting 15 minutes or less; 15-45 minute performances will range $75-$150. Apply here.


RAW SPACE:
Our new location on Chicago Avenue (ideally located near a number of other galleries) has a large, relatively undeveloped basement area which we will use as an “incubator space”- a site ideal for installations, assemblages, or performances.  Artists who are looking for an affordable space to transform for a month or two are encouraged to stop by the gallery to check out the space. Pricing: $150-$500. Submit proposals here.

TIME ARTS
:

ARC has identified a small portion of the gallery to be dedicated to the exhibition of video, sound, or animation pieces. Work will be looped on a monitor(s) and/or headphones. The work will be on view for one entire exhibition month. Pricing: $15 for submissions 5 minutes and under; $40 for submissions over 5 minutes long. Submit your mp4 here.

Interested artists may email us at info@arcgallery.org for more information. Stop by the gallery (1463 W Chicago Ave) if you’d like to see the space. You may submit a proposal with samples of your work if you would like to be considered for one of these opportunities. Our exhibition committee reviews all work, and will get back to you with a decision re: your proposal and/or a link to send your payment.
