September 2- 29, 2016
First Friday Reception: September 2016, 6-10p
For the month of September, VAE is offering our Main Gallery space as a platform to promote video artists! OUR OWN TERMS is an opportunity for you to see the work of artists using video or moving images in their work to exhibit their most creative ideas, on their own terms (see what we did there?). The goals of the exhibit include exposing the Triangle to a wider range of video work, helping the public to understand how to purchase and collect video work, and to strengthen VAE's connection with video artists.

Kelly McChesney- director, Flanders Gallery and LUMP
Kelly opened Flanders Gallery in 2006 and it has been one of Raleigh's leading contemporary art spaces for the past decade. In 2016, she began working with Bill Thelan as the new director of LUMP as it transitions to a non-profit experimental space. Kelly had been an advocate for video artists by educating the public and collectors about video and moving image works. Kelly has worked to place video pieces in large corporate and private collections and used Flanders to provide a platform for video artists to exhibit their work, including the frames per second exhibition in 2014.
For this exhibition, in coordination with Flanders Gallery, the Capitol Broadcasting Company is selecting three videos to exhibit as part of their video art and digital media program. The juror will selected three artists to receive a $250 stipend to exhibit their work at WRAL in Raleigh, CBC headquarters in Raleigh, American Tobacco Campus and/or American Underground in Durham.
ABOUT CBC’S VIDEO ART PROGRAM: CBC acknowledges the importance of new media, not only as a vehicle for delivering content, but also for its use as contemplative and challenging fine art. By partnering with NC artists and organizations, CBC seeks to provide the public with a variety of video art and digital art selections. Both established and emerging artists working in video and film will be featured on a quarterly basis at the following locations: WRAL in Raleigh, CBC headquarters in Raleigh, American Tobacco Campus and American Underground in Durham. The goal is to develop and exhibit a contemporary art collection that embraces new technology.
