TUE, July 10 : RNAC General Meeting, 6:30 pm
There will be a general meeting of the Rocky Neck Art Colony this Tuesday, July 10, 6:30pm at the Cultural Center, 4 Wonson Street, in Rocky Neck. An agenda and minutes from the last meeting will be emailed to members prior to the meeting.
WED, July 11 : Lisa K. Rosenstein, Introductory Slide Presentation, 7pm
Lisa Rosenstein, a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art and Design and from Washington, D.C., is a multi-media artist whose recent work has focused on a unique approach to using a limited means toward achieving a great variety of evocative imagery. Using the reductive capability of white paint and found objects, she has created intimate yet powerfully meditative and reflective works,which she has described as "altars".
"For the past three years, I’ve been working exclusively in White with a focus on shadow, texture, pattern and dimension. This work evolved into 3-d and recently has left the canvas and gone to the floor in the shape of handmade, unstructured "nets" which I can hang on the wall as free-form sculptures."
Group Shows at the Cultural Center: JULY 18-AUGUST 6 and AUGUST 9-27
Artist members of RNAC are encouraged to submit proposals of art in 2 D / flat media (painting, photography, mixed media, printmaking, etc.) to hang on two sections of wall at The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck. Each exhibition will feature six or seven artists.
Please complete the entry form with contact information, a brief description of the art to be exhibited with the theme, if there is one, framed sizes, media and jpegs for at least three of the proposed artworks for curating and promotional use. With the goal of raising money to acquire the Center building, the RNAC will take a 50% commission on the sale price of each piece of which 30% will go to overhead and 20% towards the building fund. Throughout this initial fundraising period, rental or hanging fees will be waived. To assure visibility for the artists and their work, we will require gallery sitting. S
Selection process: Proposed art will be chosen to complete both shows with a balance in style, media, and size. It will be curated for overall content and visual impact but these are not juried shows. Those not chosen will be placed on a list for future shows.
ART SUBMISSION FORM Please complete the revised entry form and return with jpegs of at least 3 pieces of the proposed art by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than July 10. Multiple pages of this form can be submitted. Selections and notifications – July 13.
Art and inventory sheet must be delivered on Monday, July 16, between 12 and 4 pm. Art from the current must be picked up same day. Please note the date change.
It is recommended that those interested see the newly installing hanging system at the Center (open this Saturday and Sunday 12-4 pm). At the same time, take a look at the current show – on exhibition until July 16th. Hope you plan on participating in this Call for Art.
