OPENING RECEPTION: 1ST THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2013, FROM 5 - 8PM
Sullivan Goss is pleased to announce the fifth annual 100 GRAND exhibition, curated by Susan Bush. Featuring 100 quality works of art for $1,000 or less, the exhibition has become an incubator of emerging talent, an entryway for beginning collectors, a holiday celebration in the art community, and an ever timely reminder that everyone’s life is improved by the addition of original works of art.
The exhibition opens on 1st Thursday in December. Last year, almost a thousand people attended over the course of the evening. December’s 1st Thursday at Sullivan Goss has become one of the area’s mustattend events of the year– a chance for artists and collectors to get together, network, and celebrate the accomplishments of another year in art.
100 GRAND will feature paintings, drawings, photographs, assemblage and sculpture by emerging and established artists that are priced to sell and sized (for the most part) to fit into smaller spaces. For this year’s exhibition, Contemporary Curator Susan Bush was able to secure work from many of last year’s bestselling artists, but there are also seventeen artists who have never shown with Sullivan Goss before.
Often, the gallery will use the 100 GRAND exhibition as proving ground to see what new ideas, aesthetics, materials, or artists will find an audience. Works that sell well and garner praise often make their way back onto the gallery’s walls. With 100 GRAND, new and younger collectors can begin to acquire and learn about original art from a serious gallery at an affordable price. With emerging artists, collectors get an opportunity to “get in on the ground floor.” For the gallery’s regular roster of successful, midcareer artists, collectors get an opportunity to buy works below market rate. For these reasons, sales are usually brisk. Since its first come first serve, buyers are encouraged to arrive early and to act fast.
