treat gallery is excited to announce our open call: "All of The Lights."
Light, literally or metaphorically can stir conversation on Direction, Intensity, Color, Contrast, and Hardness. There are seven basic properties of light. Reflection, Refraction, Diffraction, Interference, Polarization, Dispersion and Scattering. Properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum. Light can be conceptual: have you seen a light at the end of a dark tunnel?
In Edgar Allen Poe's poem "A Dream" from the 1830's, he wrote "In visions of the dark night, I have dreamed of joy departed— But a waking dream of life and light, Hath left me broken-hearted." 10 years ago, rapper Kanye West wrote: "Lights: Cop lights, flashlights, spotlights, strobe lights, street lights (all of the lights, all of the lights) - Fast life, drug life, thug life, rock life every night (all of the lights, all of the lights)" In the 2008 film "The Dark Knight," character Harvey Dent states “The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.” For "All of The Lights," treat gallery wants to see your interpretation of this theme.
treat gallery is committed to helping businesses and individuals throughout the boroughs of New York City. For this exhibition, we will donate 25% of all sales to New York City based nonprofit Candlelighters NYC. Since 2007, Candlelighters NYC has been helping kids fighting cancer and their families. Kids from all over the world come to New York City to receive the best pediatric cancer treatment available. Candlelighters NYC assists through all stages: discovery, diagnosis, education, treatment and remission. They provide an emotional support system full of love and comfort while they are so far away from home, and add quality of life to children with cancer by providing them with a fun, positive atmosphere to help them feel normal in a situation that is so far from that. Candlelighters NYC becomes their New York City family so that they can just be kids. Learn more here: candlelightersnyc.org
