RAA Calls For Artists For New Exhibit
he Rockaway Artists Alliance is calling all artists to bring forth their talent and submit their best for three new and exciting exhibitions at the Rockaway Center for the Arts (RoCA) galleries.
Now in the offing are: A Primary, Intrusion Or Intimacy; and Paper Trail, with entry deadlines coming up fast.
A Primary Exhibition: A Juried Exhibition With A Limited Palette invites painters, watercolorists and artists working in pencil and pastel to stretch their imaginations in exploring a world of artwork using either the many shades of one color or the vibrancy locked within the primary colors of red, yellow and blue. Deadline for receipt of entries is December 20.
Intrusion Or Intimacy: A Juried Exhibition the Concept of Openings, Holes and Orifices, which is open to all media, including sculpture, photography, installation, video, painting and poetry, asks the artists to put a new frame around their vision in works that include the view through an opening and the opening itself. By giving new meaning to the space and the opening – a window, an eye, a hole in the wall- the exhibition asks the question: Is it an intrusion to privacy or an invitation to intimacy? Is it a void? The absence of something? Or an opening to new discoveries? Up to the questions? The deadline for receipt of entries is January 20.
PAPER TRAIL: A Printmaking and Paper Works Juried Exhibition will be accepting relief prints, silk screen, lithographs, intaglio, collagraphs, and monoprints plus three dimensional collage, paper mache, assemblages, book art and more in exploring the transforming power of paper as it is shaped by a multitude of techniques and the artist’s own singular talent. Submission deadline is February 17.
Artists may submit up to six works for each show, along with an entry fee of $35 for non-RAA members and $25 for members.
Gallery hours are Saturday 12-4p.m., Sunday 1-4 p.m. and by appointment.
Admission is free.
