CALL DESCRIPTION:

Atlantic Gallery Juried Exhibition 2023

TENUOUS THREADS

Contemporary Work Incorporating Textiles, Fibers, Threads and Mixed Media

January 24th – February 11, 2023

Deadline for submissions December 10th, 2022

A juried Group Show with Grand Prize for one artist at Atlantic Gallery in NYC’s Chelsea art district.

Juror: Patricia Miranda

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.
