PUNCH Projects presents: Barnstorm at Bluestone Garage
Hours: First Friday opening: 5pm-10pm, Saturday: noon-4pm
Media Requirements: All forms of images will be considered: photo-based works, photos of 2-d artwork, photos of installation, new media, sculpture, or other 3-d work, and photo stills from video works. Video clips, full-length video works and audio works are also welcome and encouraged. You may submit a total of 10 image files, 6 video files, 6 audio files or a combination of file types not to exceed 10 in total.
Entry Fee: $15 first entry - $5 each additional entry
Submission guidelines: The exhibition will be comprised of large-format printed images, video monitors and projections juried by the PUNCH Projects BOD (Renee Adams, Howard Barlow, Justin Beckman and Justin Gibbens). Instead of original pieces of art, selected artists will be given instructions to provide a high-resolution digital image file or video file of the chosen work(s); large format prints of the selected images will be created from the files and hung in the space. Video works will be displayed via monitors and projections directly onto the interior and exterior walls of the building. PUNCH will direct any sales inquiries to the artist. PUNCH Projects will pay the cost of shipping prints to the artists after the exhibition closes.
There is no theme to the call; however, we encourage submissions that consider how a work might speak to the dialogue between urban and rural sensibilities, as well as images and videos that might operate in a non-traditional exhibition space of this sort.
As “Barnstorm at Bluestone Garage” will kick off the first in a series of rural art exhibitions, all submissions will be considered for subsequent PUNCH Projects events.
About Us: Founded in 2006, PUNCH Projects (formerly PUNCH Gallery) has worked to promote visual art made from artists outside of the urban centers. In our ongoing effort to promote artwork that is thoughtful, fresh and contemporary coupled with our desire to further bridge urban rural connections, PUNCH Projects seeks to support the cultural vibrancy of rural art scenes by spurring creative awareness, cross-cultural engagement and economic vitality.
