The City of Norwalk Parking Authority’s Maritime Garage Gallery has extended its call for art for its next exhibit, entitled “DeFACEment: Through Artistic Eyes.” The new deadline for submissions is April 30, 2020. The exhibit, which was to open on April 30 has been postponed and is expected to open mid-2020, at a date to be determined.
The Maritime Garage Gallery is inviting artists 18 and over for submissions of art that feature expressive personality and portraiture art depicting unique perspectives through the artists’ eyes. Artists are asked to search beyond the ordinary to develop compelling visuals, including both animate and inanimate forms that evoke thought, passion, as well as hardship, conflict, and spiritual freedom. Clever uses of medium, with the exception of pedestal sculpture, are welcome. The exhibit will be curated by Robert Abriola, the Maritime Garage Gallery's newly appointed curator and local Norwalk artist.
The Maritime Garage Gallery is part of the Parking Authority’s “Art in Parking Places” placemaking initiative, an effort to support art in parking spaces. The gallery is located at 11 North Water Street in the SoNo district of Norwalk. It is free and open to the public from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
