“Like a Tom Waits Song” National Juried Exhibition

Arc Gallery said: “We received many submissions nationally and the juror,” Andrea Schwartz, “had a challenging time narrowing her choices among the many competitive submissions.”

 

Andrea Schwartz of Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco, CA, said: “The limit of 28 works of art for the gallery show was not an easy task…”

 



Step right up! With a handful of glitter and a roaring blast through a dented megaphone, Arc Gallery announces a call for art based on the inherently visual musical world of Mr. Tom Waits.   “Like a Tom Waits Song” will shine a bright dingy yellow spotlight on artwork in all media and all genres, from figurative crooked scarecrows wearing black bowler hats, to narrative environments inhabited by surreal Waitsian characters, to the abstract, the conceptual, the absurd and the down-right bizarre and everything in-between.

Waits has said,  “Songs are really just very interesting things to be doing with the air.”  The atmosphere he has created over the years is a dense tapestry of visual images and narratives that create a palpable mood and feeling about the mysterious places that we call home and the places we are going and what we have seen.

It is often said that an image is worth a thousand words.  But somehow, Tom Waits with his lyrics, utilizing only a few dozen words, conjures up intense images in our imagination that visual artists are hard pressed to match.  On top of his words, he layers familiar and strange sounds and melodies that complete the images that penetrate our minds and hearts.

JUROR: Andrea Schwartz of Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco, CA
Andrea Schwartz graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1977. Her background as an artist has assisted in her understanding of the perspectives and idiosyncrasies of the art world. For over twenty-five years the Andrea Schwartz Gallery has supported work that is challenging and at the forefront of contemporary practice, representing a select group of mid-career artists from the Bay Area and throughout the country. The range of work includes paintings, works on paper, photography and sculpture.  See:  www.asgallery.com
