CELEBRATE CCCA’S 50TH YEAR IN THE THIRD DIMENSION!

Design by Arlene Boehm

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!

2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the existence of Columbia County Council on the Arts–the premier arts organization dedicated to the promotion of visual, performing and literary artists in and out of our county! In recognition of this, we’re doing something special! Three dimensional artists are invited to submit to CHATHAM MEADOWS: CCCA’S 2015 SUMMER SCULPTURE SHOW, a season-long outdoor sculpture show, with a kickoff gala fundraiser opening in June!

HOW TO SUBMIT:
Send us your jpg images of self supporting, outdoor, wind and weather resistant sculptures for consideration to info@artscolumbia.org., with “Chatham Meadows” in the subject line of your email. You may submit multiple views of a work, if doing so imparts needed additional visual information for the curator. Please be sure to label artworks clearly (i. e. SCULPTURE TITLE, View A, View B...). There is no cost to submit and there are no installation fees. Maximum submission of works per artist is FIVE (5). If there are any “special circumstances” related to installation, artists are asked to contact the curator in advance. Questions and installation ideas should be directed to curator at raven.cooley09@gmail.com. CCCA will insure sculpture against damage and loss and CCCA will charge a 30% commission on all sales.

CURATOR JOHN COOLEY:
John is a sculptor from Chatham, NY. He has displayed his work in numerous juried shows in the Hudson Valley, Massachusetts and Michigan. He was educated at Syracuse University (BA & MA) and has a PhD from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He is currently Professor Emeritus of English and Environmental Studies at Western Michigan University. In reference to his own work, Cooley says: “I am attracted to three-dimensional art and typically work with wood or other natural materials. I am drawn to the edges of roads, fields, to dilapidated barns and abandoned factories, rich patinas formed by layers of paint or varnish and to the ways in which time alters surfaces with weathering, fading and bleeding of colors.”

EXHIBIT SPACE:
Fifteen acres rolling meadows, wooded paths, pond and stream–a variety of micro-environments to complement multiple aspects of varied works.

LOCATION:
101 Harmon Heights Road, Chatham, NY

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: June 5, 2015 (by midnight)

FRIDAY, JULY 10th:
Painting continues! Artists may be viewed painting on site throughout the day. (7am – dusk)

SATURDAY, JULY 11th:
Third and final day of painting! Artists will deliver their ‘wet canvases’ to the Wagon House Education Center by 12:00 pm where artwork will be installed for event guests to view during a special cocktail hour followed by a live auction beginning at 5:00 pm.

Thirty plein air artists will capture one of the most famous sites in America and the 19th century home, studio and designed landscape of Hudson River School artist, Frederic Edwin Church. The 250-acre historic estate features a Persian-inspired mansion and five miles of carriage drives, many of which traverse the property developed in much the way that Church created his can- vases, with strategically-revealed vistas of one of the most strikingly beautiful places in the Hudson Valley.

Juror: Gretchen Kelly
Gretchen states, “I work in a variety of mediums and styles. Primarily, I do figurative works and landscapes. My fashion and home decor background influence my work at times. I am inspired by the beauty of what is natural in my world and embellish it with my own personal touches of color, pattern and ornament. My work has a whimsical nature to it which comes from my spontaneous marks as I paint. I work quickly and try to capture gestures and nuances of fleeting moments which are the details that bring to each painting, the beauty that I see and record. Simplicity is the mark that I strive for.”

Kirsten Bates, Keith Batten, Debra Bilow, Arlene Boehm, Ken Bovat, Denise B. Chandler, Susan Elias, Gary Finelli, Dona Mara Friedman, Laura Garramone, Gail Giles, J.
