Call for Artists: FIRST STREET GALLERY 2018: Pop Up-On and Off the Wall
FIRST STREET GALLERY announces our 4th Season of Pop Up – On and Off the Wall, that will take place in January 2018. The series consists of 3, 3-day shows (Thur, Fri, Sat) held on three consecutive weekends in our large Chelsea Gallery.
The Gallery’s first three seasons of the Pop Up series have included a vibrant group of artists in a wide range of mediums – 2D, 3D, installation, photography, printmaking, painting and mixed media.
We invite you to view images of the previous series on our Facebook page.
Each 3-day show highlights a select group of no more than 8 individual artists and is curated to create a group that is cohesive and complimentary. Opening receptions will be held on the first Thursday of each individual show.
Individual participants will have an exhibition area of approximately 14’ x 14’ of wall space (not necessarily contiguous). Artists with 3D work will be given the equivalent amount of floor space. Selected artists may, within reason, use their space in whatever manner they feel shows their work to its best advantage. Artists will be required to submit a planned layout prior to installation and are strongly encouraged to install their own work.
