News: Open Call for Artists

Forward Contemporary is pleased to announce an open call for artists.

The gallery is currently taking applications for Summer and Fall 2019. The deadline to submit is May 31st. All artists from the Tri-State area are welcome to submit their application.

At Forward Contemporary, we merge the classic concept of a commercial contemporary fine art gallery with the non-negotiable need for a creative cultural space. We aim to provide a meeting point where art and social practice can merge.

We are interested in artists who connect with their community and create a dialogue through their work. Accepted mediums are painting, drawing and sculpture.


All applications must include:

- Cover letter

- Artist statement

- Portfolio and CV

- 5 to 10 representative images

  • All images included should be no less than 72dpi and no more than

    1200px at the longest dimension.

- Image List (title, date, dimensions, and medium)

Please email proposals to andrea@forwardcontemporary.com with the subject

line “Open Call 2019.”

Please don’t drop off any materials at the gallery, as they won’t be considered.

 
 

Gallery Statement

Can we allow art to be the container from which we envision ways to restore community? Throughout history we observe how artists have been at the forefront of social transformation.

We are the producers of culture and the generators of voice. It is our responsibility to continue in that movement and to hold ourselves accountable for the art we are producing and sharing within our communities.

The importance of an artist’s voice is something deeply personal but larger than the self. Forward Contemporary surfaces the desire to come together through the current times.

It is within the toughest moments where we must challenge our own identities and perceptions in order to recover ways to connect, understand and align with each other.

With a real appreciation for aesthetic, Forward Contemporary merges the classic concept of a commercial art gallery with the non-negotiable need for a creative cultural space.

We aim to provide a meeting point where art and social practice can merge. So here is to moving Forward. Here is to taking agency in who we are becoming.
