Call for Artists: Stamp Gallery Summer Exhibition 'Beautiful Lacunae'

posted on April 18, 2018

The Stamp Gallery is pleased to announce a Call for Entries for its second summer exhibition, Beautiful Lacunae. This exhibition will be on view from early July through mid August, 2018. The curator seeks artworks that explore language, and specifically the situations created by artists whose work engage with languages and cultural traditions that their audiences may not speak, or with which their viewers may be unfamiliar. 


Read the Call for Artists for more information. Proposals are due May 21, 2018.

    Mission Statement

    The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming the gallery offers an outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunity. The gallery space can be used as a laboratory for emerging artists and curators to experiment and work through their ideas, emphasizing the importance of the process to contemporary artistic practice. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.
