Little by Little

The Little by Little Call for Work opens August 2.

Little by Little, a juried exhibition of small artworks, presents a wide variety of art expressed in a size no more than twelve-inches in any dimension. Amazing, beautiful, and impactful small works of art presented in a dedicated exhibition from a more intimate viewpoint that begs for a closer look!

These incredible artworks make wonderful gifts for family, friends, or for you too. If you purchase a piece, we will take it off the wall to take it home with you that day.

Light Sensitive

The Light Sensitive Call for Work opens June 15.

To celebrate the art of handcrafted prints, Art Intersection presents Light Sensitive, our eleventh-annual, international juried exhibition of images created using traditional darkroom, historical, and alternative photographic processes and methods.

In the current takeover of imagery presented on computer screens and the overwhelming volume of digitally printed pictures, the purpose of our Light Sensitive exhibition is to celebrate, promote, and reaffirm the art of handcrafted prints that uniquely belong to the tradition of light sensitive creative processes. Each year we search for work representing creativity, passion, and display of the beauty these light sensitive processes bring.

Acceptable Processes include, but are not limited, to: silver gelatin prints, albumen, anthotype, argyrotype, athenatype, Bayard direct positive, calotype, carbon, casein, chrysotype, cyanotype, dusting-on process, gum bichromate, gumoil, Herschel’s breath printing, photopolymer gravure, Ivorytype, kallitype, mordançage, platinum/palladium, printing-out-paper, solarplate intaglio, van dyke brown, wet plate collodion, whey process, Ziatype, combinations of any of these processes, and all photographically based image-making techniques that incorporate traditional studio-based mediums such as printmaking, ceramics, or painting.

Zelma Basha Salmeri Gallery Award

On October 25, 2012, the Zelma Basha Salmeri Gallery Award was awarded to Art Intersection, an educational institution and gallery, for expanding the scope and quality of the arts in Gilbert, Arizona.

The following is reprinted from the Arizona Republic:

“At his third annual Breakfast with the Arts on Thursday, Gilbert Mayor John Lewis extolled the importance of the arts amid the increasing importance that science and technology are receiving in education and economic development.

His theme was Connecting Arts to the Community: Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead, a slogan that adds arts to STEM, the acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics that is being promoted in schools.

“When we think of STEM, that’s a good thing. When we put the ‘a’ in STEM, that’s even greater,” Lewis told a gathering of Gilbert’s artists and arts educators and volunteers.

An accompanying slide show highlighted the town’s arts community, including Art Intersection, the Gilbert Art Walk and the Hale Centre Theatre.

Lewis also presented 10 awards, some named after prominent town families.”
