Transformations Gallery has put out a call for artwork for our upcoming indoor exhibit, "Doors." Judy Weinberg, my co-curator, and I have been developing this concept for a while. In January, our small town was swept up in the administration's policy to deport immigrants which lead Judy and I to have a number of conversations about doors-- specifically how they let some people in and keep others out. Around that time, we started putting another idea in motion that we'd been thinking about-- creating a small sculpture garden on the grounds of the Old Franklin Schoolhouse. Things started coming together about a month ago and we put the call out for artists to submit their own visual interpretation of doors for the indoor exhibit. We are also finalizing plans for the outdoor sculpture area, including harvesting doors from a historic building in Metuchen which will be provided to a select group of artists to transform; these will comprise our inaugural sculpture exhibit. More on that as it develops! We have received a number of interesting submissions for the indoor show and are looking forward to seeing how both shows come together. The submission deadline for the indoor exhibit is August 10 so if you're interested, we'd love to see what Doors mean to you.
