Splash, Drip, Throw: Online Exhibition / Calls & Submissions
December 5, 2021
Organization Name: Visionary Art Collective
Organization Location: Brooklyn, NY
Type: Calls & Submissions
Visionary Art Collective© is a Brooklyn-based art & education platform. Our mission is to connect contemporary art with education through virtual exhibitions, weekly interviews, educational resources, workshops, and more.
Splash, Drip, Throw is a virtual exhibition centered around abstract art. We invite artists using abstract visual language to submit their work to this exhibit. Please note that Splash, Drip, Throw is not only for expressionists or action-based painters. We welcome all artists utilizing abstraction to submit their work. We are seeking diverse mediums and styles, and are open to a wide range of techniques and processes for this show.
When someone thinks of abstract art, they may think of a simplified approach to creation; however, the history of abstract art is rich and complex. From Rothko’s Color Field paintings to Joan Mitchell’s bold, energetic brushstrokes, abstract art does not fit one specific definition. We are interested in work that embraces or challenges traditional expectations of abstract art.
We accept all 2D mediums, including (but not limited to): painting, drawing, photography, digital, prints, fiber art, collage, mixed media.
Our guest juror for this exhibit is Gita Joshi, a London-based independent curator, an award winning art dealer, and the host of The Curator’s Salon – a podcast and website focussing on the art world with advice for early and mid career artists. She has an art history background and trained in curating at Central St Martins before opening her own gallery, Orso Major, in Central London (2013-2016). Gita has produced artists open studio programs, worked with arts charities, organized open exhibitions, been a juror for art competitions and curated exhibitions in business spaces as well as within the gallery context.
She works as an artist coach supporting artists to establish their careers and paint their own profitable path. She has curated over 30 exhibitions and her first virtual exhibition opened in April 2020. In May 2021, Gita published Art Seen Magazine. Gita is the author of the bestselling book, Show Your Art: How to build an art career without a Gallery.
