JULY 2018

Ground Floor Gallery + Studios
Location: Nashville, TN
Calling all artists, please submit your work to Ground Floor Gallery + Studios’ 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibition— Rhythm and Rush. Rhythm and Rush seeks to find work that provokes movement, atmosphere, and speed in both conceptual and formal ways within all media. The ways in which the picture frame is questioned, expanded or uniquely considered while being provocative, contemporary and personal are elements of this show concept. The juror, Catherine Haggarty is curious about the ways in which the speed of image consumption, and image promotion affects artists today – or the ways in which it does not affect them. Rhythm and Rush is an open consideration to the lens in which we all are living and working in. Slow, fast, static, haptic, and rhythmic can be presented in many ways – we are seeking works that touch on these ideas in very specific, sensitive and strong ways
Deadline: July 15
