Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: July 13, 2020 – After the pandemic experience of the last few months, the phrase “Drawn From Life” has taken on new meaning for all of us. We welcome a broad and creative interpretation of our show’s title theme. Upstream Gallery invites artists who work in any medium except photography to submit pieces that involve the human figure. This will be the gallery’s second annual exhibition based solely on portraying the figure. The exhibition will open at the Gallery in Hastings on Hudson on Thursday, August 6th and run through Sunday, August 30th

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, there will be no opening reception at the gallery, but the show will be a feature exhibit on our gallery page on ARTSY concurrent with the gallery show. Upstream Gallery will be following strict safety protocols, and the number of visitors permitted in the gallery at one time will be limited. These rules will be continually updated as the situation changes and develops. Gallery hours will also be adjusted as necessary.
