die Zeit of Drawing – The Time of Drawing climate/gallery, NYC (Lá Fora… 233)
Deadline November 23, 2009
Exhibition December 5 – 20, 2009
Drawing, we artists are all doing it again. In this complex time of new energies and new directions in every facet of our lives, drawing, the ancient and perhaps the first method of self-expression, has been taken up by artists as never before. It is as if we have retrofitted the medium for defining and thinking about this ultra-modern time of overwhelming media capabilities, simply in pictures made directly by the power of the hand alone.
National and international artists may submit artwork for this exhibition.
Full information can be found on the gallery’s website.
10 artists will be chosen for distinction from this exhibition by Jason Andrew, Director of Norte Maar, and executor of the Jack Tworkov Estate. The gallery will publish a catalogue of the work of the 10 artists. The gallery maintains a Flat File of work on paper for invited artists. Artist Representation will be given to selected artists.
The gallery is dedicated to the presentation of contemporary visual art in thematic monthly group shows providing opportunities for artists to exhibit their work within a context of current international practice from varied ethnic and cultural contexts. All viewpoints and mediums are welcome. The gallery’s mission is to provide an opportunity for artists to become exhibiting members in the arts community of New York City, whether they are showing for the first time or have years of exhibition experience.
The gallery is located in the historic Scalamandre Silks Building in Long Island City, one of New York City’s most vibrant arts neighborhoods. With magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline, the building houses art galleries, performing arts spaces, and studios. Nearby are a number of museums including PS1, the Fisher Landau Center for Art, and the Sculpture Center. The greater neighborhood hosts diverse arts activities, a number of art galleries, restaurants and clubs, and riverfront attractions.
