The Painting Center, a gallery in the heart of Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its upcoming juried exhibition entitled “Grey Matter,” running from June 21st - August 6th, 2011.

Mutable and mysterious, grey can signify both a presence and an absence in painting.  As the middle ground of our perceptual value scale, it lends itself to diverse usages and interpretations. The relationship painters have to grey in their work can reveal a great deal about their sensibilities, intent and background. In "Grey Matter" our goal is to explore the various dynamics of grey currently being produced in drawing, painting and collage.

Architectural Unconscious - GA
Deadline: April 29, 2011. 
Possibly the most exquisite combination of "form meets function" exists around us all.  For civilizations the architecture that emerged has served a wealth of uses, from the most utilitarian purposes to the most intricate historical records.  However, the vast impressiveness and monumental achievement of the architecture we experience typically distracts us from the efforts that lead to such an enormous structure.  Architecture yields sculptures, drawings, photographs, paintings, plans, detailed models, and many other forms of art that demand our attention.  Insightful appreciations for these humble beginnings will undoubtedly provide a more clear perspective for the significance of civilization's structures. Open to all art and artists. How to Apply: http://desotorow.org/?p=541. Contact: info@desotorow.org. Web Site: www.desotorow.org
