Atlantic Gallery Juried Exhibition 2024

This is the Future of Non- Objective Art!

February 13th – March 2nd, 2024

Deadline for submissions December 15th, 2023

Atlantic Gallery, located in the historic Landmark Arts Building in Chelsea NYC, invites artists to submit work for the upcoming juried exhibition, This is the Future of Non-Objective Art! What Happens when the formal, ephemeral, intuitive, cultural, and spiritual co-exist? You get new engagements.

Non-Objective art is full of “invisible realities” that address our times, beyond the language of abstraction and its great history. To expand its definition beyond formalism and reductive art, we are seeking post 20th-century makers, creating innovative work that is grounded in new approaches. This might embody sensory experiences or philosophical inquiry or experimental processes and techniques. All practices will be considered in 2D & 3D, as well as a variety of substrates. Open to artists nationally & internationally.

The Juror, Suzan Shutan, will award two artists a joint exhibition at Atlantic Gallery at a future date. A PDF catalog of the exhibition will be available.

About Atlantic Gallery
Atlantic Gallery is located in the Landmark Arts Building, half a block from the High Line, in Manhattan’s Chelsea gallery district. This historic building is home to more than two dozen art galleries. The Gallery may be accessed from either the building’s West 27th or West 28th Street entrances.

Atlantic Gallery represents a select group of artists, who jointly own and manage it. Rotating exhibitions feature the work of the Gallery’s member artists, as well as the work of other artists. Atlantic Gallery is committed to supporting creative autonomy and excellence. Its innovative programs create a forum where both participating artists and the public provide mutual challenge, support and inspiration.

Founded by painters and printmakers in 1974, Atlantic Gallery migrated from Brooklyn to SoHo in 1979 and to Chelsea in 2007, having added photographers and sculptors to its roster of artists. In 2012, the Gallery moved further west to its current location.
