Open Call for Art: Feel the FRILL – The Ginsburg Gauntlet Exhibition

Sculpture To Wear Gallery has a 21-year history of curating and hosting poignant, cutting-edge exhibitions by award-winning International artists. In keeping with this tradition, we are seeking edge dwellers, truth seekers and history makers for an exhibition honoring Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who “changed minds and made change happen”. The primarily on-line exhibition will feature wearable art collars similar to those worn by the Nortorious RBG to challenge, “throw down the gauntlet”, evoke opinion, dissent, or non-verbal expression ushering a distinct message, often against the establishment.

The show will be curated by Lisa M. Berman of Sculpture To Wear Gallery and additionally, judged by Human Rights Activist Jayne Herring and Berta Montoya – CFO of U.S. Lifestyle Group.

LIC Walking Art Tour! Let us help you find a wall!

We will be holding an open call for muralists and street artists to submit proposals for multiple buildings around LIC, and we will be starting with our very own building: The Plaxall Gallery! Our city needs art now more than ever, and we want to partner with you to make it happen. 

In the next few weeks Culture Lab will provide images of participating buildings and preferred themes and open up a call for submissions. There will be some pay, as well as documentation in video and stills provided for further publicity and exposure. We will be announcing submission details soon, but in the meantime sign up for our Muralists Database: 

INSTALL DATES: Mural installation is planned to take place during the quarantine. We will make sure proper social distancing is followed to  protect you.

LIC-A Open Call for Art: "Drawn To paper"

Beyond canvas, aluminum, linen, or wood, paper has a special resonance for everyone. It is what we used in school to create cards for our parents, or to create a masterpiece at age 7 when we were all artists.

Now as professionals, paper offers a thousand possibilities. We can sketch, draw and paint, collage, sculpt, create books, wall hangings, and photographs or allow the paper to be the art. In this challenge we invite the artists to engage in a conversation with paper in whatever way they imagine. The paper is the thing!
