"Movement is life: without movement, life is unthinkable."
- Moshé Pinchas Feldenkrais

We are seeking artists to apply with work that explores “Movement”. Humanity is always on the move. From the moment of birth we learn and absorb the world around us through movement and sensation. We are fascinated with traveling far and wide via planes, trains, and automobiles. Some artists seek to freeze the moving world into a quiet moment to capture it forever in a static two dimensional plane.  While others seeks to express the thrill of fast cars, wind blown clouds, and racing horses. Celebrate movement of all kinds with us in this exhibition.

All mediums are accepted. Work should revolve around the ideas of movement.  Reception is free and open to the public. Artists are encouraged to attend. The gallery is located in the beautiful, historic Livestock Exchange Building.

Accepted artists must drop off their work on Friday, September 10th from 1-5 or Saturday September 11th from 11- 3.  Artists who are shipping their work must have their work arrive by September 10th.  Artists are responsible for shipping their work to the gallery and for return shipping in case their work doesn't sell.  Artists are required to put a paid return shipping label with a tracking number inside their shipping box or crate. We will not accept money or stamps for return shipping, please have a paid return shipping label in the box.  Please purchase shipping insurance for your artwork. Please do not use packing peanuts.

Artists must pick up unsold work on Saturday, October 8th 11- 3 pm or Monday, October 11th 11- 5 pm.  We will be shipping back unsold work on these dates. Keep your tracking number handy to see when your work will be scheduled to arrive back to you after these dates.

Artwork must be original and must be ready to hang with a wire hanging apparatus on the back. We do have shelves and pedestals for 3D artwork. Damaged or unframed/ unwired work will not be hung.

Artists are encouraged to attend the reception but attendance in not required.  Receptions are free and open to the public.  Artists may invite fans to the reception using our gallery's Facebook event or by sharing our announcements and posts on Instagram.  The gallery will also share this event and others in our newsletter.  Artists may request to join the newsletter and can forward this to share with their followers as well.
