FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Following 2003’s The New Acropolis and 2004’s Junto, this December sees the third installment in Fleisher/Ollman Gallery’s landmark Annual Invitation exhibition of young Philadelphia artists. Curators Brendan Greaves, William Pym and Jina Valentine are looking for submissions for this year’s installment. The show will open December 9th and run through January.
Former participants have gone on to show at Harvard University Art Galleries, White Columns, Andrea Rosen Gallery, Art 36 Basel, the Frieze Art Fair, Moore College of Art and the Fleisher/Ollman Gallery. This is a proven opportunity for young un- and under-represented artists to dramatically raise their profile in the city and international art world at large.
Artists interested in submission must meet the following criteria:
Must currently reside in the Greater Philadelphia area.
No official commercial gallery representation in the Greater Philadelphia area.
All submitted work must have been made in the last 18 months.
While anyone is encouraged to submit, be advised that the focus of this exhibition
is on young, emerging artists.
Currently enrolled students are ineligible.
Work must be submitted in the form of at least 10 slides or digital images. Absolutely no physical work will be accepted at the gallery; no studio visits will be made in the first round of selection. Websites will not be accepted; if the piece is a website, submit it on a CD.
No restrictions on media, scale or subject matter.
Resumé or curriculum vitae required, artist statement not required.
Only submissions accompanied by an SASE will be returned.
All work must be submitted by mail or in person by 5pm, Saturday, November 5th. The Fleisher/Ollman Gallery is located at 1616 Walnut Street, Suite 100, Philadelphia, PA 19103. Phone is 215 545-7562, and email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
