    Opening Reception Thursday September 8, 7-9pm

    LACDA announces our Un-Juried Competition: Snap to Grid. In our second
    annual exhibition of this kind participants each upload one image to be
    printed on high quality paper (8.5x11) and hung in a grid in our
    gallery. The show will be widely promoted and will include a reception
    for the artists.

    After the exhibition the images and artist information will be
    available to view in our artist portfolios. Artwork for future exhibits
    will be selected from the portfolios, and will also be available for
    review by area gallerists, curators and arts journalists. Everybody

    Gallery Statement: Every year for 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery
    has held its "Open Call" exhibit where any artist can show up with
    their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece
    is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to launch an
    international experiment of the same nature where the artists upload
    images that are printed and hung by the gallery. The hundreds of works
    are displayed in a grid like installation (reminiscent of postcard art
    shows of the 1980's) where every work submitted is exhibited. The usual
    (less than democratic) selection process where only the precious few
    are chosen is turned on its head in a curatorial anarchy where everyone
    gets to participate and the viewer is literally left to be the judge.
    The show represents a snapshot of a current moment in art history when
    digital imaging has reached the hands of the many, an age where culture
    belongs to the "mobblogers" around the globe. From Thailand to Texas,
    amateur to academic, beautiful to banal and beyond the monumental
    quantity and variety of "Snap to Grid" becomes an aesthetic experience
    where each individual piece adds to an agglomerative effect that has a
    life of its own.

    Deadline for entries:
