Introducing The First Annual $500 "Linden's Gift"

Sept. 8 - Oct. 6, 2018
 

We are honored and amazed at the opportunity to again invite ALL artists from far and wide and of all types, to this 7th Annual open call exhibition.


It is the 7th time that our "Annual" will be organized in a non-curated, non-juried, non-judged and uncensored practice that has generated some really strong exhibitions.
So please join us and invite your friends, so we can have another great show.

We are living in a highly consequential moment in our history... What are artists thinking about? What are you doing? How are we expressing ourselves? This is NOT a political show, but we hope to hear your voices. The Germantown Annual is an opportunity for artists to make community and engage in the conversation. The Annual is also an important fundraising tool for the gallery... it's artists supporting artists... THANK YOU!

And this year for the first time, "Linden's Gift", an annual commemorative gift of $500, will be given to the best in show as determined by the voting of all participating artists, to celebrate the life of Linden Jordan Eskenazi, known in Germantown as LJ. We are honored to host this thoughtful and generous memorial to our friend, and we give thanks to Linden's mother Susan Guggenheim, her family, and the Eskenazi family for celebrating their son with art and the attention and advocacy that mental illness and the opioid crisis in the creative community and in our neighborhood requires. LJ, we hope our love keeps you in the light.
