The “01301: Art by, for, and about Greenfield” show is coming down the pike! Thirty local artists will be in the show and the opening will be during the weekend of the Brick + Mortar International Video Art Festival, October 12-13. Mark your calendars!
Juror Jean-Pierre Pasche was not able to participate but jurors Jenn Simms, Braden Chattman, and Becky George have viewed all of the entries; they will be deciding the final winners in the week prior to the opening reception. If your piece was chosen for the show, you will be receiving notification soon. Thanks again to all who entered!
The “01301” opening reception will be held sometime Friday or Saturday, October 12 or 13, the same weekend as the Brick + Mortar International Video Art Festival here in Greenfield. We have leads on several good downtown locations for the show & will be choosing a final location sometime in September. We look forward to announcing the details soon!
The deadline to enter the Greenfield Local Cultural Council’s first annual juried art show, 01301: Art by, for, and about Greenfield has now passed. The show was open to anyone living in Greenfield, anyone working in Greenfield, or anyone making art about or inspired by Greenfield; artists of all ages, working in any media, were encouraged to enter.
The entries have now gone to the jurors: Jen Simms, Professor of Art at Greenfield Community College; Braden Chattman, Digital Imaging Instructor at Hallmark School of Photography; Jean-Pierre Pasche, owner of Eastmont Custom Framing in Easthampton & co-creator of the Arts In the Orchard sculpture project; and Becky George, Events Manager at the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and co-organizer of the Green River Festival and the Brick and Mortar International Video Art Festival.
The show and its gala opening will be held Fall 2012, in a location to be announced at a later date.

There’s some question about the theme of this show: each piece or artist must have some connection to the 01301 (Greenfield’s zip code). Maybe you live here, maybe you produced your piece within the city limits (GCC or local studio), maybe you were sleeping on the couch of a friend in Greenfield when you dreamed about the work? Just make a connection of some sort with the 01301 and your piece will be considered fairly! Submission is only $10. Prizes substantially larger!
