Crosstown Arts says
Opening Reception: Friday, April 29, 6-9 pm
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, April 29 – May 14, 10 am – 6 pm

An open call exhibition organized by Crosstown Arts and the Cleveland Street Flea Market featuring work by over 70 artists!

This second incarnation of the Belongings show continues in the spirit of community and the reuse and re-imagining of objects. All artists are invited to participate by purchasing any object of inspiration from the Cleveland Street Flea Market at 438 N Cleveland to transform into (or use as inspiration for) a new work of art.

The nostalgia and surprise felt when browsing at a flea market is a ripe field for artistic interpretation. A psychedelic print from the 70’s can inspire a color scheme or shape motif. A plastic bust of Scooby Doo can evoke early childhood Saturday mornings in front of the TV. A cover of an early genre pulp fiction paperback might be a poignant reminder of how prevalent attitudes have changed since the 1950’s.

One submission per artist will be accepted based on the guidelines below. All artists are welcome to participate regardless of their level of expertise or prior art experience.

Belongings II: Repurposed will be on view at Crosstown Arts Gallery, 422 N Cleveland, April 29- May 14, 2016
