TINY Print Show: December – March 2021
Calling all visual artists, poets, and other creatives with something to say about 2020!
Gallery 924 is asking you…What is your hope for 2021? What is your message to/for 2020? What ideas or words will you use to capture our collective or your personal 2020 experience? We envision the 2020 TINY as our message to the world. Do you want to uplift, celebrate, commemorate, commiserate, vent a grievance, maybe provide a warning or a thank you?
This year has and continues to be a unique experience for us all. Some want to forget it ever happened. Many want to learn from it and grow to be a better and more just society. One thing we all learned was that our collective go-to in a global disaster is science and art! When things are uncertain, we look to science to help us navigate how to stay safe and we look to art to help us cope, understand, empathize, inspire, and express our joy and pain. What we witnessed all over the world were people from all backgrounds and generations looking to the arts to stay connected, to communicate, to feel they weren’t alone, or simply engage their minds when their hands were left without safe activities. We listened to music, either recorded or live streamed from a musician’s living room. We binge watched films and cleverly written small screen series. We read novels and poetry. And when we needed to feel hope for the future and try to understand the present, we looked to Black visual artists who created Racial Justice murals for broken windows in downtown.
2020 would mark the 9th annual TINY show. However, we know a typical TINY show with 100 artists and hundreds of patrons packed into the gallery is not possible this year. So, as we close the books on 2020, we want to ask artists what they are feeling and how we can use TINY to share your thoughts with our community.
Share existing work or propose new work that can be printed at 6”x6” exactly. No matter what the original material or size, selected work must be reproduced as multiples (printmaking, photography, giclées of original paintings, digital work, etc.). The work can be text-based, image-based, or both.
The 6” x 6” prints/reproductions will be displayed in the windows of Gallery 924 facing inside and out for viewers on the sidewalk as well as in the gallery. Each artist must provide 5 prints of each selected artwork so patrons can buy the prints and take them for gifts or personal collections. Two editions will remain in the gallery for the winter to provide inspiration to passers by walking on the street or those inside the Arts Council space.
If you are submitting existing work, it may mean that you have to crop an interesting 6”x6” portion of your original, existing artwork.
All central Indiana artists over the age of 18 are welcome to submit. For these purposes, central Indiana is considered to be Marion and the seven surrounding counties.
Pricing and Commission:
Each print will be sold for $30 (for consistency and simplicity sake, no exceptions). Gallery 924 takes a 25% commission on all sold artwork.
Prints should not be framed or have any hanging hardware. Gallery staff will be hanging the artwork using a clip system.
***Information about submitting images:
Images should be 72dpi and around 800 pixels in any direction (or of a file size less than 1MB each)
