The Exchange Gallery has two great art exhibits that you can submit work to! Show us what you got in Over the Top, and Cash and Carry VI.

“Over the Top”

adj. phr.: to an excessive degree; beyond reasonable or acceptable limits

Now let’s see what this phrase means to you.  The Exchange Gallery will host an open-call show with the title “Over the Top” from September 30th through November 9th, 2019.

We encourage artists of every age and level of experience, working in any medium, to submit artwork that speaks to this theme — and we leave it entirely up to each artist how to interpret the theme.  We charge no entry fee, and you may set the price of your work; as with all of our shows, the artist receives 80% of the sale price.  We accept 2D and 3D works, including installations and video pieces, as long as they fit through the front door (35″ wide by 79″ high).  Work due by Saturday, September 28th, when we will have the Gallery open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The reception for “Over the Top” will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 5th, simultaneous with Artspace‘s reception for “The Texture of Becoming”, work by Deb Stabley, Bob McCormick, and Beth Aten.

And we’ve got panels for “Cash & Carry VI”

Work due Saturday, November 9th.  Show runs November 11th, 2019, through January 3rd, 2020

We have two sizes this year: roughly 7″ x 9″, to sell for $25 (the artist gets $20), and roughly 9″ x 12″, to sell for $50 (the artist gets $40).  You can do anything you want with a panel: paint on it, draw on it, glue on a photograph, knit around it, build a miniature landscape on it, even grow plants on it — and even better, do something we have never thought of!

You may take up to three panels at a time; when you bring them back as completed artworks, you may take three more, until we run out.

The show opens on Monday, November 11th, but sales do not begin until the reception (date and time TBD); as always, at the reception, prospective buyers will each get a number, and the person with number 1 will get to choose the first piece — and if she wants a second piece, she will need to get another number and go to the back of the line.  Everyone has had a lot of fun with this every year, and we look forward to another lively reception this year.
