Digital Exhibition #2

Curated by Jacob Hicks

QuantumArtReview hosted an open call through the New York Foundation for the Arts asking for the submission of work in any medium to be considered for the second in our online exhibition series.

I was thrilled with a large response, this being a new sort of experiment for me in how to build bridges to a wider and further-reaching artistic community.  Through technology, we as artists can access one another’s work in new and unparalleled ways, ways not dependent on a traditional and exclusionary gallery model.  There is an immense pool of talent whose voices are diminished, if not muted, because of a lack of resource and connectivity to a secluded, exclusive, and unregulated market driven by the knowledge of no artistic or learned authority but by the tastes of the generally uneducated, gambling rich.

So lets bypass them.

Thank you for all of the submissions.  If your work is not included, please know I enjoyed the chance to look and consider it, and that anything made with care, concern, patience, and learned skill is beautiful and worthy in my book.
