CALL for ENTRIES: AbstrAction

2017 August 6

I eat lots of pizza, an odd side result of my job as a performing musician.  Common menu offerings include lettuce-topped Mexican, Greek, thick-crust Sicilian, Californian, the New York slice, the ubiquitous pineapple Hawaiian, and of course, deep-dish Chicago style.  There are many others, but these are the standards.  I love how, outside the area for which they are named, they consistently have similar the toppings that aren’t always grounded in anything more than habit.  Did you know California-style always has sun-dried tomatoes? Do you know why? Me either.  Food stereotypes are funny & often well-intentioned, but odd & often very abstract.  This next Call wants the abstract, but don’t send them pizza.  The deadline looms…

Check out this Call for Entries from Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (Novato, CA) for AbstrAction.  This gallery is located in Hamilton Field, a beautiful, historic space, and you know how I love a museum show.  Take a look…
