I have two virtual events this July.
One is in Chicago. at Woman Made Gallery - the theme is HOME, i wrote about it in depth here
I really admire the way this gallery shifted it's calls for art. Each who submit were allowed one assured piece into the show. They lowered their entry fee. The response was seemingly very positive, raising funds for the gallery while allowing artists who have lost many opportunities this year to me a part of something. They have done this multiple times this year.
The other show themed SHIFT is local, it's a small but mighty collection of those who help run Make.Shift Gallery
I enjoyed the art call for Shift. they requested that we submit art that is "quintessentially you" which really made me smile.
"Every month in Make.shift our gallery is filled with eye-catching and controversial work from local, regional and international artists, but what about the artists who work hard to make sure we are functioning at full steam? We are fortunate to have so much talent within Make.shift’s community. July is our month to showcase the visual artists that help to form us as an institution. We asked our staff, interns, board members, jury members, gallery attendants, and kzax DJs to submit work that defined their art. We’d like to show the work that they feel most embodies their themes and style to display the range of creativity within our space. Join us art walk Friday so we can show you what Make.shift is really made of"
I would also have opened my touring show "singularity" at a new location.
had we not still be managing things pandemic.
I am grateful for two small shops that are still carrying my work.
In spite of reduced hours and phase 2 small business compliance.
and Main Gallery 404 in IL
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
