IF ONLY YOU KNEW: a national fine art exhibition about revealing secrets & stories behind the artwork.
Concept: This is an exhibition about revealing secrets or otherwise not-widely known information to one another. Each piece submitted to the show must also have a brief statement telling something surprising or private that will be disclosed opening night. The statements can be whimsical, funny, intriguing, unexpected, weird or heartbreaking.
The question to ask yourself as an artist is: What is important about this work (or why you made it) that no one would know unless you told them?
What's different about this show? If You Only Knew is a show designed to increase greater interaction of the viewer with the artwork presented to them in the space. When visitors arrive opening night, each one will be presented with a sealed envelope, which will contain the private story, secret or revelation about one of the pieces. (It will be numbered to correspond with the artwork.) Not everyone will get the same envelope, so only limited people are privy to the backstory behind each piece.
The exhibit will be in the Old Courthouse Arts Center, located on Woodstock's historic square, NW of Chicago. You may recognize the square from the film Groundhog Day
J + K Isacson are curators for this exhibition, working in partnership with the Old Court House Arts Center.
(This show is part invitational and part open call to artists. Invitational spots are currently filled.)
