1628 Call to Artists: Fall 2022 Art Exhibition – Deeply Rooted, Deeply Held

1628 Ltd Call to Artists – Fall 2022 Art Exhibit

Open Call: May 23rd – June 10th, 2022

Exhibition Dates: August 22nd – November 4th, 2022

Deadline: June 10th, 2022 at 11:59 PM

Deeply Rooted, Deeply Held: An Exploration of the Natural World

Nature can be many different things. It is the environment around us, the ecosystem sustaining us, and the instincts woven into our very being. Nature can help create a culture, a cuisine, a religion; but in its fullness, it is also full of contradictions. It creates in the same breath that it breaks down. It inspires awe as it does fear. It is the deepest ocean in the same way it is the farthest star. Our relationship with it is similarly complex. It is key to our survival, yet we destroy it. It fosters our wellbeing, yet we isolate ourselves from it. It is untamable, yet we still try to contain it. Somehow all of these things can be true.

And somehow, the art created in its name can address all of these things. From the Hudson River School capturing the sublime beauty of untouched America, to the Land Artists creating ever-changing works from mud, stone, and grass, nature has been the subject and the tools of artists since the dawn of time. Whether realistic or heavily stylized, representational or abstract, artists have always been attracted to depicting nature and their own personal or cultural relationship with it. 

Deeply Rooted, Deeply Held speaks to the continuation of this millennia long dance between artists and the world they find themselves in. It explores our extraordinary planet and our connection to it – the emotions it inspires, the comfort (or danger) it brings – and urges us to appreciate and protect it, to closely hold what has been rooted within us for so long. 

1628 Ltd. is accepting all mediums: painting/drawing, photography, printmaking, mixed media, 3D works, etc. Work is not required to be representational so long as it visually or conceptually relates to nature. 

Experienced and emerging artists are both encouraged to participate. We recommend that artwork be minimally 11” x 14” to be considered for this show. However, if your work does not fit the minimum size yet still works with the theme, please feel free to apply.

If you are interested in seeing the space virtually before applying to the exhibition, please refer to this 1628 blog post. Here you will find a virtual tour of our most recently scanned exhibition, Queen City Visual Narrative

The deadline to submit for the exhibition is Friday, June 10th, 2022 at 11:59 PM. The final decisions of the art to be featured will be decided by Friday, July 8th, 2022.

The day was carefully curated to meet all of our needs and the team was so accommodating and helpful from providing refreshments to coordinating ordering, setup and tear down of our catered lunch. We have plenty of places to host meetings at our corporate office but the act of getting us together in a comfortable and completely neutral space allowed us to really concentrate, collaborate and make the most of our time. I can't recommend Tamara and her team at 1628 Ltd. highly enough. We'll be using the space and experience for our quarterly manager retreats going forward! read less - Brad Slomsky - 6/24/2020

I would highly recommend it for your next event. From the booking process to the logistics on the day of the shower, they made sure our event went off without a hitch.The booking process was easy and efficient. We were able to book and pay online. They communicated in a timely manner and answered all of my questions.The space is decorated so nicely, but in a way that would complement any event. The decor is so beautiful we barely needed anything to decorate the space. This alone helps save on cost to an event while still ensuring your guest are impressed!There were more then enough places for guest to sit and enjoy each other (several sofa setting areas and tables) along with places for people to eat and sit to a table.The owner was there the day of the event the entire time! We could not have pulled it off without her! She was literally helping us pull it together before guest arrived making herself totally available for what we needed. They have so many wonderful amenities including a kitchen and dishes.I can’t say enough about the place and the owner. So many of my guest expressed interest in hosting their next event there. It’s the perfect place for your next event! read less - Tracy Alexander - 6/24/2020

I didn't have the opportunity to check out the upper level.Beautiful decor. Felt like a living space. Like home. There are conference rooms, but remaining space/open space included some desk-like tables facing a wall, upholstered chairs with side tables and a section of lucite tables with chairs along the windowfront. It felt a little too open/vulnerable for me. No way to take calls or have a conversation without feeling like you'd disturb your neighbor. Intimate like working in a beautifully decorated living room. Which is fine if it's with Co workers rather than strangers. Hard to describe...I prefer the utility of the layout at Union Hall. More conducive to "work", less "home" feel. Quiet work nooks and call booths, tucked away spaces and various zones. More privacy, feels like you can be ducked-off in your own workspace, though visible to others. But that's also a bigger building with lots going on.I didn't feel like I could focus, get into my zone and get work done at 1628- totally My preference/with style and is subjective. But very stylish and beautiful decor. Love the fully stocked, open access kitchen. Free snacks and coffee.I found a parking space right out front, but I could see parking possibly being a bit of a challenge. read less - Candis Sistrunk - 6/24/2019
