Man, I am so old. I go lookin’ for images to post up for Teton Art Lab’s call to artists, for its upcoming “Wallpaper” exhibition, and I think I will find oodles of gorgeous decorator wall papers. Grass paper, Ralph Lauren patterns, accents, borders, stenciling, flocks; and themes like “The Hunt,” “Jungle,” “Rose Garden,” “Zen,” “Star Wars,”….
But no. It’s all about “Anime” and desktop and video games and such.
Teton Artlab is seeking entries for its second annual “Wallpaper” exhibition, to be held from December 4th – 23rd, 2009.
All works on paper are eligible, provided they are UNFRAMED and under 48″ on the longest side. Submissions must be dropped off at Teton Art Lab (up on the third floor of the Center for the Arts) by November 27th. This is a juried show, and works that are not destined to be part of the show will be returned by December 3rd.
Entries should have the artist’s name, phone number, and email, either on the back of the work or included with a portfolio.
For information, send a note…not written, but emailed…to :[email protected]
Lyndsay McCandless has announced she is “pushing the pause button” on SLAM, Jackson’s grass roots artist market modeled on the town’s Saturday Farmer’s Market. She will also cease producing First Fridays, music events and all parties for now.
McCandless says the Town of Jackson has deemed her gallery space “not up to code,” and has notified her that the gallery may not hold gatherings with more than 45 people.
Well, that’s huge, because McCandless has transitioned the gallery space into the local contemporary art community’s primary gathering place. She has been the heart, the Energizer Bunny, for young visual artists here. The ceasing of McCandless events leaves a big black hole in our arts scene. I don’t know the extent of SLAM’s effect on our local arts economy, but any slice taken out of our artistic family’s financial pie is a painful loss.
I call again on commercial property owners to offer up empty store front space to local artists! This is ridiculous!
McCandless says the shut down forces her to reevaluate LMC’s future. Stay tuned.
I’ve asked McCandless why, after occupying the space on Jackson Street for as long as she has, the space is suddenly deemed not up to code; if it’s printable, I’ll give you the answer when I receive it.
