Reception Photos: The 365 Artists 365 Days Project: The Show at the Frank Juarez Gallery

Last night we hosted our artist reception for The 365 Artists 365 Days Project: The Show. This group exhibition celebrates the artists that have been featured in this project from 2014 – 2015. 

The Frank Juarez Gallery and Greymatter Gallery collaborated on this global art project and launched it on January 1, 2014. What began as a one-year project grew into two-years of featuring artists world wide. It was great to see the enthusiasm of artists through sharing our posts especially their own via social media. Although this project came to a close in 2015 we have decided to keep the site up and running. This project is too important to take offline. 

To our amazement, what started as a way to spotlight contemporary artists daily from across the country blossomed into getting the attention of artists from across the globe such as France, Germany, Slovenia, Australia,  Russia, London, Israel and the United Kingdom; to name a few. 

In 2017, Frank Juarez, Zina Mussmann, and Rachel Quirk decided to revisit this project. This time to co-curate it as a juried exhibition and bringing it to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2018. This ambitious exhibition features local, national, and international artists from this project featuring works by Christian Arrecis (Illinois), Jill Christian (New Mexico), Nina Ghanbarzadeh (Wisconsin), Samantha Haring (Ohio), Jeanne Heifetz (New York), Colleen Keihm (Illinois), Laurie LeBreton (Illinois), Jennifer Scheuer (Indiana), Emily Swinsick (California), Casey Whittier (Kansas), Connie Wolfe (Illinois), and Ana Perez Ventura (France).

This exhibition ends July 14, 2018.

The 365 Artists 365 Days Project featured in SchoolArts Magazine

The 365 Artists 365 Days Project is featured in the October 2017 Issue of SchoolArts Magazine. Educators Frank Juarez and Elyse Lucas collaborated on a project that embraces curation, contemporary art, and community engagement. 

About the DIY Gallery: A Deeper Look into the 365 Artists 365 Days Project. 

The DIY Gallery: A Deeper Look into the 365 Artists 365 Days Project inspired Appleton high school art teacher, Elyse Lucas, to create an art curriculum that would engage art students to research, collaborate, and design their own mock up art galleries. Their journey led them to organize and curate a real exhibition in North East Wisconsin with artists from this project under the guidance of Frank Juarez.

A How to Guide to organizing our very own art exhibition

The 365 Artists 365 Days Project started on January 1, 2014 between founder Frank Juarez (Frank Juarez Gallery) and Zina Mussman and Rachel Quirk (Greymatter Gallery). This project started as a collaboration to introduce its readership to a diverse collection of art that was being produced at the local, national and international level. The goal was to engage the public with content regarding a wide array of creative processes, studio practices, and the successes and challenges that artists face from day to day inside their studios.

What started as a one-year project grew into 2-years of daily visual literacy featuring artists from across the country and around the globe. Many of which continue to push the envelope on what it means to be an artist today. The project officially ended on December 31, 2015. Since then Juarez has been presenting on this project at the state and national levels primarily at the Wisconsin Art Education Association Conference and the National Art Education Association Conventions. In one of his sessions, a high school art educator, Elyse Lucas, attended the presentation in 2015. It was then that sparked a new idea for incorporating the project within the art classroom focusing on education. 

Lucas created a very unique art lesson by implementing the 365 Artists 365 Days Project into her curriculum called The DIY Gallery: A Deeper Look into the 365 Artists 365 Days Project, which inspired her high school art students to research, collaborate, and to design their own mock up art galleries. A year later, their journey led them to organize and curate a real exhibition in North East Wisconsin featuring Wisconsin artists from this project.

This led Juarez and Lucas to begin a new collaboration by sharing this project to other art educators from across the state of Wisconsin and beyond. In October of 2016 and March of 2017 they presented at the Wisconsin Art Education Association Fall Conference in La Crosse, Wisconsin and the National Art Education Association Convention in New York, respectively. As a result of this experience, they developed an A How To Guide to Organizing Your Very Own Art Exhibition” as a way to encourage art educators to embrace their local art community, Contemporary Art, and to continue to expose students to learn about artists that are making meaningful and significant works today.

We hope you enjoy this guide.
