The Painting Center an artist-run non-profit gallery, in the heart of Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its summer juried exhibition titled Break of Day, Edge of Night. The exhibition will run in the gallery space from July 19 – August 12, 2022 and will be featured on Artsy with a catalogue of artists works.

Conceptions of day and night conjure a broad spectrum of emotions and ideas that elicit diverse imagery. This can be an embodiment or meditation on the subjective or perceptual experience of time. One thinks of the serial Haystack paintings of Monet or more recently Byron Kim’s Sunday Paintings. These daily visual shifts echo larger seasonal, and celestial cycles that acknowledge mortality and renewal. Each time evokes a different sensation, ranging from the mystery, vulnerability, and desire of night to the ecstatic and precious clarity of day. Day and night can also suggest light, it’s absence, and how it travels through space. It can be a search for boundaries or an exploration of feeling. In his painting Nighthawks, Edward Hopper conveys the loneliness and isolation of a nighttime urban scene. Artists have sought to capture the spirit of day and night by depicting beauty, decay, rebellion, conformity, the seductive and the strange. We are looking for works of art that are inspired by day and night in all its revelations. Works may be two-dimensional or three-dimensional, including but not limited to mixed media, photography, digital, sculpture and painting.
