Pop Up Paper Show: A Call to Artists

Reich Paper is a family-owned business that sells quality old world papers with the innovation and needs of the new world in an environmentally sustainable way. It is located at 7518 Third Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and has been chosen as the 4th venue in the Stand series.

Paper is visceral, a loved and invaluable material for every artist. Humble and hard working it is usually the first place for the artist’s ideas to take hold. For this show you are being asked simply to use it. Cut it, paint it, draw on it, sculpt it… Cultivate a relationship to it, but don’t get too attached. Enter it into the Pop Up Paper Show and give it a chance to form new relationships. This is our homage to the humble workhorse that is paper and it is fitting that we honor it by giving it a chance to find a new home and a new love. Make it priced to sell because it won’t be sitting for long. This Pop Up Paper Show will only be around for one evening.

Reich Paper will offer artists samples to use in their work and they are curious to see how you will respond to their precious product. If you are interested in this generous offer, visit Reich Paper the week of 2/23-2/27 between the hours of 11:00a-3:00p

Works are to be made on or with paper (Reich or other papers) and they are to be no larger than 9×12 and priced to sell at $300 or less. Artists can enter more than one work. No fee required. Open to all mediums.
