We are very excited that Winners and Juror’s Selections will have the opportunity to participate in a gallery show, SEPTEMBER 15 – 27, 2014, at the SITE 109 GALLERY in the Lower East Side gallery district. In addition, an exhibition catalog of the group show will be available.
Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines; Yachts; Race Cars; are they symbols of lifestyle or are they everyday means of transportation. Freight trains, family cars, canoes and dingies, commercial airplanes, camels, elephants, horse drawn buggies, helicopters; show us your Formula 1 or junk heaps, America’s Cup or rowboat. From the beginning of time when walking and horse riding were the only options, transportation now holds a vast variety of choices from the simple and practical to the luxurious and outrageous. The challenge for this call is to submit those images of transportation that say so much more.
