Call for Art for members of the Katonah Museum Artists' Association

Juried exhibition at the Fine Arts Gallery of Westchester Community College in Valhalla, New York, from May 14 to June 15, 2018.

Entries open from March 2, 2018 to April 2, 2018

Theme: Order/Disorder

Disorder,
Like a sudden hail storm striking a still pond,
Riotous disruption at the surface
Belies hidden currents below the seeming 
Order above.


Order/Disorder are two sides of the same coin. Like yin and yang, though seeming opposite, one begets the other on whatever wave of human or natural history we measure--hope/despair, peace/war, law/injustice, love/hate. How does your art reflect this ever present dichotomy?


Juror: Laura G. Einstein  With a 30+-year career in curating and museum work, Laura G. Einstein has worked as Interim Head and Assistant Curator of the Asian Art Department at Yale University Art Gallery, Lecturer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for both the Asian Art and Education Departments, Lecturer at IBM Gallery of Science and Art and Curator at a number of museums and galleries throughout the tri-state area including curating exhibitions for Helen Frankenthaler, Wolf Kahn, Robert Andrew Parker and a variety of thematic exhibitions.  Einstein was the Executive Director of the Center for Contemporary Printmaking from 2014-2017.  As Principal of LGE Fine Art Consulting, Einstein worked for a selected group of artists, estates, and museums/galleries in Asian art as well as Contemporary Western art.  She has also been an Educator at The Glass House in New Canaan.  Einstein has written for Journal of the Print WorldArt in Print and VENU, among other publications.
