The Painting Center, a gallery in the heart of Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its upcoming juried exhibition entitled Working It Out, running from June 18th to July 13th, 2013. The exhibit will be accompanied by a printed catalog and will be widely publicized.

Artists of all disciplines begin their creative process with preparatory drawings. This enables visual problem solving throughout the execution of an artwork that is both fluid and beautiful. Drawing can be an exploration of materials, mark making, the emotional tenor of a piece, compositional arrangements or color. Working drawings are the visual manifestation of a work in progress; a working idea.

Typically, this work is not seen by the public. These are private musings that reflect thought processes. They are, by defi nition, incomplete. This exhibition will allow the viewer to see the private world of the artist’s creative process.

We invite artists of all disciplines to submit working drawings for architecture, industrial design, sculpture, painting, drawing, etc. In addition, the exhibition will include a computer loop of finished works by the artists.
