Young Affiliates of the Mint announce call for submission for ‘Gendered’

Second art show headed to Level 5 expansion space

The Young Affiliates of the Mint (the “YAMs”) announce their Second Annual Art Show, Gendered: An Inclusive Art Show, to be held in Mint Museum Uptown’s Level 5 expansion space, with a call to artists to submit bodies of work that explore intersectionalities with gender, race, class, and identity. Gendered will be a group exhibition including 10-15 artists, each of whom will show a body of cohesive work to be selected by guest curators. The Young Affiliates are accepting submissions now through March 26, 2017. The show will be regional, accepting entries from artists living and/or making art in the Southeastern states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Virginia.  Artists must submit high resolution images of the works submitted, an artist statement, and a CV. The entry fee is $40 for up to 15 works of art from a cohesive body of work. Gendered will open to the public on June 16, 2017 and be on view until July 21, 2017 with additional programming to be announced in conjunction with the show.

80×80: An Art Show , the Young Affiliates’ Inaugural Art Show, was awarded BEST EXHIBITION OF 2016 by the readers of Creative Loafing. Held in June of 2016 at Mint Museum Uptown, opening night was attended by over 600 people. 80×80 featured 80 works in honor of Mint Museum’s 80th anniversary, opening a dialogue between artists, unbridled from any overarching theme, content, medium, or geographic parameters. A featured 80×80 piece, ’Impala’ by Anne Lemanski of Spruce Pine, N.C., was acquired by The Mint Museum through a generous private donation and is currently on view at the Schiff-Bresler Family Fiber Art Gallery at the Uptown location.
