“In the City” open call

    Work due Saturday, July 22nd

    Show runs Monday, July 24th through Friday, September 1st

To explain his impressions of the early industrial cities of Europe, Charles Baudelaire used the term “ennui”, the feeling of being alone on a crowded place. He saw these cities with their influx of people from the country as lonely and distant. Is that how you think of cities today, or as bustling cities of opportunity? Or do you see them as dangerous, or mysterious? The Exchange Gallery invites you to share your thoughts on the city though your art. All media welcome.

We want to fund your public art ideas. We want your help in creating an Arts District Downtown Berwick, on Front and Market St. Submit to our Call for Art grant round to help build the town you want to see. It is an easy online application and you can reach out to me if you have any questions about the process or what we hope to create. Go to the website and learn more.

“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.” – Voltaire

As one of our basic life needs, food has been a popular subject matter throughout modern art and art history. Depictions of food can be found in Italian Renaissance paintings, on Roman mosaics, and inside the Egyptian pyramids. Food is the cornerstone of holidays, celebrations, and the Bloomsburg Fair! Everything from fruits and vegetables to delectable desserts, elegant cuisine to greasy diner platters – we love it all, and we want to see it all! The Exchange invites you to submit artwork on the delicious theme of food.

    The Exchange asks artists and show-goers to donate non-perishable food items during the

    duration of this exhibition. At the end of the show, we will bring your donations to the

    Bloomsburg Food Cupboard.
