Pyramid Atlantic Art Center Presents MASHUP: Annual Members Show

.
Opening Reception: Friday, April 26 from 6:30pm to 9pm
.

In a twist on Pyramid’s annual juried member show, this year’s exhibition is completely uncurated with only one restriction: works cannot be larger than 30″ on any side. Pyramid Members are exhibiting works of their choice. The resulting show is a mashup of styles, mediums, and price points hung riotously throughout the gallery. Modest prizes and bragging rights will be awarded for “Founder’s Choice,” “Craftsmanship,” and “The Popular Vote.”

“Sometimes you just want to show something that might not check a curator or juror’s box,” remarks Kate Taylor Davis, Pyramid’s Executive Director. “We also have a wide array of members and wanted to have a show that was about finding ways to include rather than exclude.” Pyramid had a great response to its call for artists, with over 80 artists, about 1/3 of the organization’s membership, participating!” As to what to expect, not even the staff of Pyramid can be sure until the artists drop off their work next week. “Looking at the artist roster, the only sure thing is that we’re in for some surprises.”

Gallery hours:

  • Tuesday – Saturday: 10 am – 6 pm
  •  Sunday: 12 – 5 pm

The exhibition and reception are FREE and open to the public.
