Process is a themed exhibition where artists’ work will be accompanied by materials that offer the viewer greater insight into the creative process that brought the work to life. Not only are we looking for the artist to present a high quality piece (that can be finished or even “in process”), but to explain to the viewer how the process is important. In particular, how it influences and informs the end result.

For this show, Water Street Studios is looking to present artists who create art work in a process-driven manner. The jurying of these submissions will consider both the work as well as the supporting documentation about how the artist’s process drives their work. If the artist has a vision as to how the entirety of the work can be displayed together to best convey their message, such supporting documentation is welcome. If supported by video documentation, please indicate whether you can provide the hardware to show the video or whether Water Street Studios will need to provide it.
Submissions should be high quality photos of the sketch book pages you would like to display that show how you came up with the final piece(s). Examples may be partial drawings, photos, written concepts. We are looking to display actual sketch book pages, not photographs of pages. Although it may be easier to display, pages do not necessarily need to be ripped out of your book. Please note, these pages might be taped or pinned to the wall. Artists may draw on our walls, if need be.
