Doubt Exhibit - Nov 2017

Exhibit: Doubt
November 7 – December 3, 2017
Juror: Jason Gubbiotti
Submissions: Digital Entry
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 9, 6:30–8:00 pm


"It’s so fine and yet so terrible to stand in front of a blank canvas."  
— Paul Cezanne


Insecurities can settle themselves inside of us and cause doubt. Doubt within us, with others, with technology, even our artistic abilities. Van Gogh, Rembrandt, and Toulouse-Lautrec are famous for theirs. But sharing our doubts can often lead to a communal response and recognition. Pieces in this exhibit should evoke a reaction from the viewer and draw them into the artist's or the subject's point of uncertainty. 


Artists will be asked to include a short statement about their “doubt," that will be displayed next to their piece during the exhibit. The doubt encountered when making this particular artwork, doubt about being an artist, or the daily doubts, large and small, that influence us can fuel this write-up. The statement will be covered, so as not to distract from the first impact of the artwork. If they choose to, the public will be able to "open" and read these companion statements—but they won't be immediately viewable—just as with our doubts.


Guidelines:

  • Artist must be a current exhibiting artist member of The Art League gallery
  • If the work weighs over 60 lbs, the artist must install the piece themselves, if accepted.
  • All works must adhere to the Gallery hanging and framing requirements.
  • Artists are free to enter any current work made within 10 years.

 

Works are chosen by the selected juror based on her/his curatorial vision and aesthetic.
