This summer, Bleicher/Golightly Gallery has opened its doors to a select group of artists to showcase their work in a similar approach to an artist’s “studio sale”. Like a traditional studio sale the Summer Studio Series gives artists the opportunity to showcase unusual works that have slipped through the cracks between gallery exhibits, as well as brand new works fresh off the easel.
During the course of the series, artists will each bring work directly from their studios to the gallery and display it ‘studio style’ for three days. They will host their own studio sale event during this period. Artists will be encouraged to collaborate with other artists and regular gallery goers, create work at the gallery, and develop interactive ‘work-in-progress’ projects.
Bringing artists studio works to the gallery is a nice break from the gallery’s more formal exhibit schedule and has a sense of irony given that a studio sale is sometimes an attempt by an artist to bypass the gallery system. The gallery will choose works from each display to be placed aside from the sale. At the end of the Summer Studio Series, these reserved works will be featured in a silent auction and group exhibit.
