Dreadful Art on Display
The Pember Library and Museum in Granville, N.Y., will open a month-long contrarian exhibition titled ‘Dreadful Art: Best of the Worst,’ beginning on Friday, August 1.
Every artist has done work that got off to a bad start. The creative process is not linear. Artistic attempts should be seen as experiments that eliminate and refine – or tell us to get a day job. The Dreadful Art Exhibition will showcase those works that left through the wrong gate, never realized their potential, or never had any – you be the judge.
Amateurs and holders of miscast art may relinquish private possession of those attic eyesores for a month. Artists, give us your worst shot! Bring your worst work to the Pember by the submission deadline on Tuesday, July 31. There will be a juried grand prize for Most Dreadful. Submissions should be original. Bad art may be lent for the exhibition or donated to the Museum for fundraising.The Pember is located at 33 West Main Street. Call 518-642-1515 for further details.
