MYRTLE AVENUE BROOKLYN PARTNERSHIP SEEKS SUBMISSIONS FOR UPCOMING
MYRTLE WINDOWS GALLERY EXHIBITION: A PATCHWORK STORY
By ‘breaking down the walls’ of the traditional private art gallery, Myrtle Windows Gallery brings two-dimensional art to the public arena via storefront windows, where it is accessible to anyone simply walking down the street. The initiative helps bring together artists, businesses, and the community in a dialogue about art and the boundaries of ‘public’ space.
The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership seeks existing two-dimensional works of art (paintings, prints, photographs, collage, mixed media, etc.) for temporary installation in 10 storefront windows on Myrtle Avenue between
Classon Ave. and Vanderbilt Ave. beginning in February 2013 for one month (dates to be determined).
To coincide with our Black History Month Celebration: Black “Artstory” Month on the Avenue, we are seeking work that is inspired by or celebrates African American quilts and quilting traditions or incorporates fabric, sewing or quilting design aesthetics. Works can be literal references to quilting or conceptual interpretations.
Preference will be given to artists based in NYC, and especially those based in Brooklyn.
Please submit the following materials by January 2, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org. att Daonne Huff
• Brief artist statement and brief description of the submitted artworks, including how each embraces A Patchwork Story’s theme.
• Up to 5 artwork images with index listing title, medium, and dimensions for each artwork. Please combine photos in a zip folder or pdf.
• Current resume.
For more information, visit www.myrtleavenue.org or contact email@example.com (email preferred).
We look forward to your submissions!
