The Painting Center, an artist-run gallery in Chelsea, announces a call for entries to its annual juried summer exhibition JuxtaPositions. We invite all artists to submit work that explores visual elements being placed close together with contrasting effect. The creative process can involve seeing old things in new contexts -- joining, collaging, overlapping or designing parts that previously seemed completely unrelated, creating new relationships that can be serious, funny, real, fake, observed, invented, beautiful, chaotic, political or personal. We welcome a broad interpretation of the theme.

JuxtaPositions is open to all media.
