April 18-May 4, 2014
Nave Gallery Annex (Davis Square), 53 Chester St, Somerville, MA
The Nave Gallery Annex introduces Painting Intricacies, an exhibition of work that explores the visual language of detailed, meticulous painting. A painting can be masterful or abundant in ways that are expected or unexpected—through the details of the brush work, the details of the mark-making, or the details narrated within the painting.
For this exhibition, curator and Somerville artist Resa Blatman is on the lookout for intricate, beautiful, and/or lush paintings of any medium or style that don’t hold back.
There is a $15 entry fee payable through PayPal.
A maximum of 3 pieces may be entered for consideration.
Submissions will be accepted through March 7, 2014.
