Welcome to Hamilton Street Gallery, located in downtown Bound Brook, New Jersey, is an exhibition space for contemporary visual art. We welcome both emerging and established artists residing in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. All media is considered and we encourage work that is new and experimental. There will be 6 or 7 annual group exhibits, some of which will be juried and curated by our gallery staff, and others by guest curators. Shows will run between 6 and 8 weeks. They will be thematic and versatile in nature, ranging from whimsical to the audacious, providing artists with the means to articulate their ideas about the world. Also, we hope to stimulate the creative pulse of the community by conveying an atmosphere in which to experience a focused, personal and enriching engagement with art.
CALL FOR ARTISTS
There is a legend that Washington D.C. is built over a swamp, and occasionally rampant mosquito infestations have been known to spread disease.
During Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the catch phrase “Drain the Swamp”, implied the promise of an upright, ethical administration that would not enrich itself through profit driven political opportunism. It would protect the rights of hard working Americans and “Make America Great Again”. Well, after nearly two years into his presidency and as we stand ankle deep in the muck, Trump’s corporate empire has flourished in the swamp. Former CEO cabinet officials, pro industrial lobbyists, private sector staffers, and other swamp creatures like the Koch brothers, briskly backstroke up the Potomac in their quest to brazenly line their alligator purses with billions of dollars by deregulating and dismantling federal policies instituted to protect and preserve our safety, health and freedom.
For this juried exhibition 23 artists working in a variety of media, investigate and reflect upon the idea of a swamp, and all things relating to it.
