Personal Search: Small Works

to be exhibited at Upstream Gallery in Hastings on Hudson, New York, USA
5-29 January 2023

Deadline: Thursday, 1 December 2022

As both individuals and communities, we sometimes need to search inside ourselves for new purpose and meaning in our lives.  What we thought was solid is not and we suddenly find ourselves struggling to adjust to changed circumstances in many spheres. We find ourselves searching for new ways to cope with and understand our existence.

Upstream Gallery invites artists to submit small works interpreting the concept of Personal Search for a national juried exhibit to be held at Upstream Gallery. The gallery is a well-known, beautiful venue only 20 minutes from Manhattan in Hastings on Hudson, New York. The exhibit will hang from 5 to 29 January 2023 with an opening reception Sunday, 8 January 2023.

Eligible work:
Entries in all media are welcome, including drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, non-photographic digital imagery and sculpture. The size limit is 20″ in any direction including the frame or base. All accepted works must be framed and ready to hang from a wire. Sculptures must include their own base. Please note that unlike previous years, photography is no longer eligible for this show. If you are a photographer, please submit your work for their upcoming photography show in February.

Entry Fee & Commission:
$45.00 for a minimum of 3 pieces
$4.00 additional for each entry thereafter up to a maximum of 8 pieces ($65)
All pieces must be for sale.
