Attn Greenpoint Artists! Call For Artwork: “NOW” Greenpoint Art Exhibit (Deadline: 8/15)

Ugly Art Room & Greenpointers Present “NOW” – A Group Art Show @ Dobbin Project Space (50 Dobbin St) in participation with Greenpoint Gallery Night.

Opening: Friday September 13, 2013, 7-9pm
Exhibition: 9/13/13 – 9/30/13

There is never a better time than now, but the moving target of “in the moment” is ever elusive. We are often told to “let go of the past” and “stop worrying about the future.” At the same time we are told that patience is a virtue and that we must wait for the “right time.”

But what about now? What is now? Right here. Right now.

Now is a time and place. We are all inspired by our time – the year 2013 – and our space, which is Greenpoint, Brooklyn, USA, the planet. This will be the loose connecting theme among the artwork chosen. Special considerations will be given to works that consider time and place.

All mediums accepted.

The show titled “NOW” will present the contemporary artwork of artists living or working in Greenpoint – work that has been created specifically for this show or within the last 6 mo, as well as work created on site during the opening reception on 9/13/13. Progressions of pieces: studies along with completed work will be accepted. Unfinished works will also be accepted. Artwork will be created on site during the opening.

The show will serve as a “snapshot” of the contemporary art community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the year of 2013.

Submission deadline: August 15, 2013
