Dripping. With. Excess... Excessive Measures that is. We are looking for multi-faceted work that explores those times where things go over the line. Way over the line... artwork could be over the top, complex, gaudy, rude, flashy, disproportionately-sized, and mouthy, in-your-face, pissed off as hell at the world, climb to the rooftop of the building and scream. When people say things like "follow best practice", and used other dumbed down language, does this make you cringe inside? Do you dislike monotony and plain grey rooms? Just know you're not alone, this show can help. It's time to let it all out.

We accept artwork from any medium*, including Student, Emerging, Mid-Career, and/or Professional Artists. Work should follow and/or challenge the theme of the exhibit, can be evocative, and above all, should be attractive for audiences and collectors. Sculptural and 3D works are encouraged to apply.

(*We unfortunately cannot show video art at this time, but please inquire)

"Excessive Measures" In-Person Opening Reception will be held Saturday, August 26th. A second mid-show event is also TBD. The show runs to October 1st.
