2-1-2 is back in 2020!
The Ridgefield Guild of Artists
2-1-2 Juried Exhibition
Small Group Show
Feb 22 – Mar 8, 2020
About the Exhibition
This year the Ridgefield Guild will again offer a special opportunity for a small group show. Five artists, as selected by our juror, will share the entire downstairs gallery. Two artists will go in the front gallery, one in the middle and two in the third, thus the 2-1-2 title of the exhibition.
A painter and arts writer, Sharon Butler is widely known as the founder of Two Coats of Paint, a project which includes an online art journal, an artists’ residency, and other initiatives. The journal has been sponsored by numerous arts organizations including the Creative Capital Warhol Foundation Art Writers Program, and for the past two years has been supported by reader contributions and advertising revenue. In 2015 and 2018, Sharon was a resident at Yaddo, and she was also the inaugural artist-in-residence at Counterproof Press. She has shown work nationally and internationally, has been included in NADA New York and Pulse Miami, and is affiliated with Theodore:Art in Brooklyn, and SEASON, in Seattle. In 2016 and 2018 her exhibitions at Theodore:Art in Bushwick were selected as a Critic’s Picks in Time Out New York and New York Magazine. This coming academic year she will be teaching at Cornell University and the New York Academy of Art.
For this show there are no restrictions on the type of media. We welcome any and all materials. It is our hope that this opportunity will inspire the entrants to reach beyond their ordinary submissions and help to create a truly incredible show. Your work must fit in the space allotted to you and your art and it must be properly framed and presented. Selections are made based on the examples of work submitted by an artist.
