Gallery 1200, located in Hoboken, NJ, seeks baseball-themed art that captures the essence of America’s Pastime for its Baseball Art All Stars show, which will open in early July and run through Labor Day.
Hoboken is rich in baseball history, and the gallery is located one block from the site of the famed Elysian Fields game between the Knickerbocker Club and the New York Nine in 1845. Gallery 1200 is located on Washington Street, dubbed one of the Top 10 U.S. streets by the American Planning Association (APA) in 2010 under the organization’s Great Places in America program.
The Baseball Art All-Stars show is open to all artists, aged 18 and over who create art with baseball as its subject. The show will be curated by artist Paul Lempa. There are four categories, including drawing, painting, photography and sculpture. Depending on the number of submissions and dimensions of the artwork submitted, between 20 and 30 pieces will be selected for the exhibition. There is no fee for submissions, and no limit to the amount of pieces you may enter. In order to be considered for the show, artists are being asked to submit a bio and hi-resolution images of their artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org. Artists should include the name, size, and media of each piece along with pricing. The deadline for submissions is May 30, 2014, and exhibitors will be notified by June 6, 2014.
