CAMPSITE is an opportunity for artists to channel summer traditions and rituals associated with camp, resorts, and festivals—such as craft projects, wilderness encounters, improvised games, talent shows, and more. Artists may wish to revisit the naive impulses and emotional connections associated with their earliest handiwork and preferred materials or envision what summer camp means to them now. Moving freely across artistic disciplines and mediums, including performance, textiles, ceramics, painting, drawing, installation, video, and photography, CAMPSITE promises to transform the museum space into a locus of visual pleasures and unexpected activities where playful exploration leads to more serious engagement with the larger contemporary world.
The Hudson Valley Artists exhibition is open to all emerging and mid-career artists with a permanent mailing address and active art practice in Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester Counties who have not had a major one-person museum exhibition and who are not currently represented by a commercial art gallery. Students are not eligible. There is no application fee.
Artists are invited to submit a maximum of six images or files of work created in 2014 or later. Artworks created in traditional media as well as audio, video, film, and performance are welcome. Proposals and plans for new works, including installation or performance, to be created for this exhibition may also be submitted.
Artists participating in the exhibition will be responsible for the delivery of selected works to the museum; works must be ready to install upon delivery. Media artists must be able to supply players, monitors/projectors, speakers/headphones, and cables as needed. Artists will also be responsible for the pick-up of work at the end of the exhibition.
Deadline: Monday, March 21, 2016, midnight.
