The Resistance, a call to artists

Thursday, March 15, 2018
Call to artists



Call to Artists: “The Art of Resistance” is an exhibit of two and three-dimensional art, poetry, and song exploring the spectrum of art-making from social commentary to political action.

From contemplation to propaganda, the visceral reaction of artists to political change is historically intrinsic in the progression of culture and politics. In this moment, as events and beliefs spin wildly round the planet and close to home, what must we resist? How must we resist? Can we resist?

The exhibit is an exploration of that continuum and its relationship to community. Multiple arts organizations and venues are involved: Main Street Arts (MSA) in Saxtons River; Rockingham Arts and Museum Project’s Project Space 9; Canal Street Art Gallery; and Stage 33 Live at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls.

RAMP’s Project Space 9 and Canal Street Art Gallery are gallery spaces for two-dimensional work, smaller sculptures, and music/poetry. The Openings for these spaces will be scheduled for mid-June and continue into summer months. MSA will facilitate the creation of a float for the 4th of July parade in addition to a two-and three-dimensional exhibit, music, etc. The MSA exhibit will begin on July 4 and continue for 6 weeks. Stage 33 Live will host a one-night performance and exhibit on a date TBA.

In the spirit of fluidity of boundaries, artists within a 100-mile radius of Bellows Falls and Saxtons River creating work in reaction to current political/social events are invited to submit images, resume, artist statement and/or intent of interest. Additional creative ideas and suggestions are encouraged.

There are several ways to participate in this exhibit and the events that celebrate it:
路 Artists can create two- or three-dimensional pieces, including large installations.
路 Musicians and spoken word performers have three opportunities and venues.
路 Artists and students can participate in the 4th of July Parade float facilitated by David Stern at MSA.
路 Artists can participate in the Bill of Rights Project, facilitated by Jeanette Staley (see contact info below).
路 The postcard-writing project at The Resistance openings is an opportunity for everyone to participate, including students and those who do not consider themselves artists.

The Resistance is a collaborative effort with Canal St Gallery canalstreetartgallery.com and Rockingham Arts and Museum Project (RAMP) ramp-vt.org in Bellows Falls and Main Street Arts (MSA) mainstreetarts.org in Saxtons River.
