GCCA’s 2018 Group and Solo Exhibitions
September 29 – November 10 – JACK WALLS & The BRIGHT FUTURE GROUP. Works on Paper (group show) – Curated by Jack Walls
Jack Walls has been involved in the New York art scene for more than 30 years. Through the trepidatious days of downtown Manhattan in the 80’s. Through the arty independent film movement of the mid 90’s. Right through to the late 90’s and the aughts, which spawned a reckless crew of artists headed by Ryan Mcginley, Dan Colen and the late Dash Snow (each cites Walls as an influence). His decades spanning career is nothing short of miraculous. Walls is a poet & painter who continues to inspire younger artists. The BRIGHT FUTURE GROUP is a loose collective of artists first brought together by Mr.Walls in the summer of 2017.

January 26, 2019 – April 13, 2019 – Coping: Art to Process Illness, Decay, and Loss (group show)
Curated by Ashley Hopkins-Benton, Senior Historian and Curator of Social History at the New York State Museum. This exhibition will focus on artists using the process of creating art as a means to process and cope with a diagnosis, long-term illness (mental and physical), decay, and loss. The show is inspired by Bruce Hopkins, who used journaling as a way to process a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. Hopkins focused on writing as a way to stave off the effects of the disease, as well as sketch studies of fallen leaves, to explore the process of decay.
Submission deadline: Friday, November 16, 2018. Notification of acceptance will take place as soon as possible.
