Intersections Closes

After four fantastic exhibits, Intersections has now closed at Gallery 1313. But don’t forget that the Launch Pad project continues this month with the opening of the second series, To Be Moved. Curated by Chelsea Omel, these next three exhibits are not to be missed. You can check out her exhibit blog at tobemoved.wordpress.com.

Simone and I would like to extend many thanks to all of our amazing artists as well as to Gallery 1313’s director, Phil Anderson and Launch Pad co-ordinator, Elizabeth Underhill.

Stay tuned for more images and artist bios coming soon!

Call for Artists – Intersections Part 4

Call For Artists ı Deadline: Friday July 16, 2010

After three great exhibits, why not go for four!?

After the success of Intersections, a three-part exhibition series organized for the Gallery 1313 Window Box, we are extending the series by an additional month.

We are currently accepting creative proposals from emerging artists for our exhibition series, Intersections, taking place in Gallery 1313’s Window Box, from May 2010 – September 2010.

Intersections is centred around the concept of the “mash-up”; where two or more voices/mediums/styles are combined to create a single work. The focus of these exhibitions is on the changeability of environment and exploring the limits of creation. We extend the challenge to artists to forget accepted “rules” and work in a fashion that includes an understanding of flexibility in relation to the immediate environment. This approach should bring about new and exciting projects that push beyond the restraints of the traditional gallery milieu and the confines of set artistic disciplines.

Artists are welcome to submit work in any media, including but not limited to: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, installation, participatory, performance, video, and new media. Artists should note, however, that sound elements are discouraged due to the limitations of the box.

This series encourages artists to push the boundaries of their comfort zones and take the opportunity to experiment with new mediums or styles.

Keeping with the theme of the “mash-up”, artists applying collaboratively with significantly different practices will be given special consideration. Artists applying independently may be matched, by the curators, with other applicants to produce a collaborative work.

For more information about the series, visit the Intersections website: http://www.intersectionsg1313.worpress.com

Deadline for submissions is Friday July 16, 2010.

Due to the fact that we under a very tight schedule, please keep the following dates in mind when submitting your proposal:
Exhibit Opening: Wednesday August 11, 2010
Exhibit Instal: Tuesday August 10, 2010
Promotional Materials Completed and Sent to Media: Monday July 26, 2010

Please submit your proposals via email to: intersectionsg1313@gmail.com

Intersections is Extended!

Due to some good luck off the heels of some rather bad luck, we are able to add another exhibition to our series! We are currently accepting submissions by artists for the fourth and final show for Intersections to run from Wednesday August 4th to Sunday August 29th, 2010. More details to come soon so stay tuned…
