ARTE PONTE New York Gallery – Call for Artists – THE STILLED LIFE


Applications close June 2nd. 

The exhibition will be held July 20th – August 25th in our gallery premises in New York, USA, located in   529 W 20th Chelsea.

When looking at old Dutch and German still life masters, objects have always served to convey a meaning. Some objects have a universal meaning that has remained unchanged until today; while others have developed recently or have altered their symbolic message. These changes are very much dependent on the context, environmental and social influences and other objects around it.

This exhibition explores how a still life artwork – regardless of medium or genre – can tell a complex story. How objects are placed, the composition of the work, combined with the literal and metaphorical symbolic meanings enable an enriching experience for the viewer.


Artists working in any medium are invited to apply for this upcoming exhibition, to be held at ARTEPONTE New York gallery premises in Chelsea.

Open to all media: painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture.

Short information about the artists:

ELFI ANDEREGG, Switzerland, studied at the Zurich University of the Arts. Her work contains both, two- and three-dimensional objects, installations and art in the building. Since 1989 she pursues international exhibition activity. Her work is characterized by an analytical-conceptual approach. (

ANDREA BECKERS, Netherlands, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Maastricht. Since 2015 she produces international exhibitions and publications. Through over painting and further photographic processing and printing on rough, structured watercolor paper she achieves exciting effects. (

ADMIRA BRADARIC, Bosnia and Herzegovina, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo and at the Academy for Applied Arts in Vienna. In 2009 Galerija AB, located in Maglaj, was founded and is managed by her. Since this year Galerija AB is a center of contemporary art in Bosnia Herzegovina. She finds her artistic expression in photography, graphics, drawing and painting. (

PASCAL DOROTHEE, France. At the age of 13 he began to study audio-visual techniques and studied the old technique of silver photography. Since many years he produces international exhibition activity and cooperation in various international projects. His works capture the moments and emotions he has experienced on his many trips.

MARLEN PEIX, Germany. She finds her motifs in everyday life. Supposedly secondary or even inconspicuous becomes by analog and digital recording and editing techniques to abstract picture compositions of light, color and form. Since 2008 she pursues an international exhibition activity. She usually works very experimentally. In the course of time, she has developed a very different and, in some cases, very contrasting pictorial language. (

ELISABETH RASS, Austria. The love of photography was put into her cradle. Since many years she follows a continuous engagement and visualization of the apparently everyday occurrences. Since 2010 she produces an international exhibition activity. The camera as the preserver of the moment, short moments captured, unadulterated. (

BERNHARD SCHINKO, Austria. He finds his artistic expression in textile art, painting, object art and photography. Since 1985 he pursues an international exhibition activity. In his photographic works the boundaries between realistic representation, post-processed and alienated photography and painting disappear. (

HANNAH SCHWANZER, Austria, studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Since 1978 she produces international exhibition activity and numerous publications. She illustrates pictorial illusions of psychographic moments and plays with the symbolic effect of colors and spaces. (

MANFREDO WEIHS, Austria. Photography is his life and he learned it from scratch. During many years working as a press photographer, he also used the camera as an experimental tool. Together with the artist Daisy Gold, he founded the studio coolpool in Vienna in 2013. His experimental work shows a great technical know-how and a lot of attention to details. (


NEW TRAVEL AGENCY – Bureau for transdisciplinary Interventions, Austria.

AGNES EYBL, CHRISTINA SPITZBART and DALIBOR MIKIC are the gallery chat bots that capture the audience by interacting beyond the mere consideration of the images. Three art figures, equipped with text fragments from plays and scientific essays, engage the audience in talks about photography and art. (
