Community Meeting at Little Berlin


In conjunction with “Works on Paper Rejects”, inspired by Arcadia’s “Works on Paper”, Little Berlin is holding a community meeting about the issue of juried art exhibitions.  We each apply to at least one juried show.  It may be on a regular basis or maybe hardly ever.  They are definitely in our minds.  What’s the benefit for showing in a juried exhibit?  Monetary reasons?  Exposure?  Is that really what making art is all about?  When you’re applying to juried show it’s a form of social networking, a social networking involved with an art institution, art gallery, art association — art world.

Here are some additional points to consider.  There are others, but this should get the ball rolling:
–In a juried show, you lose some control of your work, that’s why it’s called submitting.
–There are a varying array of juried shows from highly curated with a theme to not curated.
–Can you make it in the art world without being in juried shows?  How do you do it?
–Some juried shows give cash or purchase prizes.  How important is that?
–By spot lighting funding through juried exhibits, grants, prizes are we neglecting collection for art?

So, come to Little Berlin on Saturday.  We are looking for points of view across the board from artists, curators, art critics, gallery assistants, gallery owners, gallery directors, museum staff, professors of art history, other professors, etc.  Overall the meeting is for artists.
