Call for Art! One in a Year

Curated by Kathy Cantwell and Shazzi Thomas

The Painting Center, an artist-run non-profit gallery, in the heart of Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its online juried exhibition titled, “One in a Year”. The exhibition will run from February 20 – April 20, 2021, and will be featured on Artsy. We will select 100 artists to participate. In addition, we will award one artist from the 100 participating artists a solo exhibition in the Project Room space in 2022.

2020 has been a difficult kind of year. Artists have responded to various crises by making art at home, isolating in their studios, or creating art on the street. There has been no shortage of artistic expression, most would say it has been therapeutic. While the world is changing, making art is something you can control, and for an artist it is self-care. The process of creating art can reduce stress, ease anxiety, and provide healing in hard times. For the online juried exhibition “One in a Year”, submit one work that reflects how you have used art as a tool to explore, develop and practice creativity as a means to wellness, specifically during 2020.
