In an ironic twist, the giant blizzard this weekend interfered with drop-off dates for The Mercurial’s juried art exhibition “The Melt.”  They have extended the deadline for drop-offs to 2/15 and 2/16, to give the snow a little time… to melt. See the press release below for more details:

Icicles dripping. Glaciers fading. Cheese oozing on a hot sandwich. A hinted smile. A choked emotion, seeping out into paint, or steel, or ink.

The Mercurial is inviting artists of all media to capture their concept of “The Melt” in its 2013 juried exhibition.  Submission drop off days will take place February 6 through 16 (drop off days extended due to weather), and the exhibition will open to the public for regular gallery hours on Saturday, February 23.  A reception will he held that evening from 5 to 7pm and will feature artist meet and greets and refreshments.

The exhibition’s best in show will be selected by The Mercurial Gallery co-curators Amanda Bloom and Katie Bassett. This artist will be awarded a solo exhibition at the gallery in the 2014 schedule.
