12 x 12 x 122 at the BECA Gallery

12 x 12 x 122 concludes on Saturday, July 3rd. Please join us in person or gallery installation photos and the 22 featured artists' works and information are now viewable online at

BECA gallery is pleased to present its Summer exhibition: '12 x 12 x 122' now through July 3, 2009.

In an unusual twist on what appears to be a traditional, if not somewhat restrictive, Call to Artists, BECA gallery presents '12 x 12 x 122', an experimental, gallery packed group exhibition of over 400 works. The show is composed of works on canvas sized 12x12 inches, spanning all mediums, submitted by 122 artists from around the world. Many artists have taken the confines of the parameters set forth within the initial Call to Artists as a challenge and stretched those parameters to suit their individual aesthetic approaches and conceptual realms.

The purpose of this non-juried experimental, group exhibition is to discover and highlight new approaches by emerging contemporary artists and by those established artists who are stretching their work into unfamiliar territory. Working within the parameters of a format of 12x12 inches (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm) on canvas has helped to sharpen the uniqueness of each individual work.

The following 22 artists have been selected as featured artists of the '12 x 12 x 122' exhibition:

Patricia 'Muffin' Sills Bernstein, Kerry Brooks, Jorinde Chang, Hollis Cooper, Meghan Fleming, Marilyn Gillis,
Monique Given, Anna Gratovich, Karla Hackenmiller,
Meryt Harding, Sarah Harvey, Barbara Keir, Lory Lockwood, Fran Nagy, Jack Niven, Colleen Ringrose, Patti Russotti, Carolyn Smith, HANSEN Thiam Sun, Richard Sweeney,
Allie Tsypin, Michelle Wuttke

Their works and artist information are now viewable online at:

Works in this show are priced from $50 - $1,775. Artists receive 75% of the sale of their work so it is a great opportunity to support emerging artists while experiencing a very different take on what an exhibition of works on canvas might be. All remaining profits are donated to The BECA Foundation.
