Bazaarbeque III call for Submissions!

Forum Artspace is pleased to announce that we will be continuing our annual tradition of Bazaarbeque! Last year, Forum was filled with over 150 works of art by over sixty artists, both local and international.

Hung salon style, the show fills our gallery walls, ceiling, and tabletops. We are currently asking artists to submit work. Due to the sheer volume of art in the exhibition, as well as our limited space, we ask that most work be smaller than 36"x36". 3D work is also acceptable, but the scale should be comparable.

All work must be brought to Forum Artspace, hang ready, no later than Sunday, May 27th* with forms (see attached). We will then spend the next three weeks curating, and installing Bazaarbeque for the June 15th opening. This means that submitting your work will not guarentee inclusion in Bazaarbeque. The show will run until July 20th.

Also keep in mind that besides being an art exhibition, Bazaarbeque is also a cookout and potluck. We encourage every artist to make food to share, or something to throw on the grill at the the events.

Drop off times will be on Sunday, May 27th from noon until eight. If you have any questions, comments, or wish to bring work at a separate date, please contact Forum Artspace here, or one of us personally by phone. Our numbers are:

Mike Abarca: 216.870.8493
Karl Anderson: 614.378.9877
Christina Day: 330.608.8614
Paul Woznicki: 216.288.5858

*If you do not live in the Cleveland area, but wish to participate, please call us or write us. We have had work come from as far away as Los Angeles, and would be glad to try and accommodate you.

April/May at FORUM: Theoretical Limits

Forum is pleased to present Theoretical Limits: Print, Painting, and Installation Work by Christina Day, opening Friday, April 20th from 5 to 10 pm.

Theoretical Limits
Print, Painting, and Installation Work by Christina Day
A University of Akron Myers School of Art Senior BFA Exhibition

A system is a set of interacting or interdependent components forming an integrated whole. In order to clearly analyze a system's structure, the information must be encoded-- broken down into the simplest possible forms. The visualization of data is one way of organizing chaos.
System formulation has taken a distinctly digital turn, increasing our sensitivity to physical objects and space. The constructed iterations in this exhibition reside in the gray area between the theoretical and the hypertangible.

The exhibition will be on display through the closing on Friday, May 18th. We hope to see you there!
