Last night we hosted our artist reception for The 365 Artists 365 Days Project: The Show. This group exhibition celebrates the artists that have been featured in this project from 2014 - 2015.
The Frank Juarez Gallery and Greymatter Gallery collaborated on this global art project and launched it on January 1, 2014. What began as a one-year project grew into two-years of featuring artists world wide. It was great to see the enthusiasm of artists through sharing our posts especially their own via social media. Although this project came to a close in 2015 we have decided to keep the site up and running. This project is too important to take offline.
To our amazement, what started as a way to spotlight contemporary artists daily from across the country blossomed into getting the attention of artists from across the globe such as France, Germany, Slovenia, Australia, Russia, London, Israel and the United Kingdom; to name a few.
