CALL FOR ENTRIES
Genesis At Green Spring Station
Deadline Extended to July 1, 2010
Presented by Baltimore Sculptors Inc. in collaboration with the James L. Pierce Fine Art Framing and Gallery at Green Spring Station, 2360 W. Joppa Road, Lutherville, MD 21093
A Two-Stage Sculpture Exhibition
About the Exhibitions
Genesis is the inaugural show of a new collaboration between Baltimore Sculptors Incorporated, the James L. Pierce Gallery, and Green Spring Station (Foxleigh Management). The call is open to all sculptors who are, or become members of Sculptors, Inc.(see “Eligibility” below.) There is no theme and no size restriction. Artists are encouraged to submit outdoor work that will be displayed in open areas throughout this prestigious shopping area. Green Spring Station serves as the north gate to Baltimore’s premier communities.
The exhibition will consist of two parts: the first is an eleven-month exhibition of larger outdoor works installed either on cement pads or directly on the ground. The second part of the exhibition will be mounted within the open interior of the shopping area. The interior offers many blank brick walls that can accommodate larger single works or multiple smaller pieces. Wall space varies from 9 feet in height and 15 to 20 feet in width to 13 feet in height by 21 feet in width. Both floor and wall-hung works will be considered for the interior spaces, but all must be compatible with the pedestrian flow of a public space. The works submitted should be child-friendly and touchable. They must be durable and able to withstand the natural elements.
Entries can be prior existing works or proposals for new work. New work proposals must be submitted as a jpeg image or a jpeg of sketches or maquettes and supported by prior examples of the artist’s work. It is highly recommended that artists visit the site to understand fully the diversity of available exhibition spaces. Images of Greenspring Station’s interior and exterior can be viewed here.
The outdoor work will be displayed in select garden locations around the exterior and along a stream in a semi-wooded open area of about a quarter acre. New cement pads for work will be arranged as needed.
The final location of each work will be at the discretion of the exhibition committee.
Rachel Rabinowitz––patron, collector, docent, Station North alumna, art historian, and auction house professional: all are apt descriptions of our juror. She has been fortunate to be surrounded by art from an early age with her family’s art collection and her mother's art studio. Rachel is a graduate of The Park School of Baltimore, The George Washington University, and The Sotheby's Institute of Art London. Along with her husband Joseph, she has built an art collection that features works from both local and international artists. Rachel is an avid student of art dealer biographies and also makes a point to visit artist studios. Looking ahead, her foremost interests include narrowing the gap between the Baltimore and Washington art scenes as well as developing new collectors of art.
This is an open call to all Sculptors Inc. members who have paid their dues for 2010. Any other artists who are not members may join by paying their annual dues of $35 or $15 for current full-time students. To join Sculptors Inc. visit the website at http://www.sculptorsinc.org/join.html. To be considered by the juror your dues must be received by our treasurer by July 1st.
