Arts Benicia (CA), National Call for Glass Artists, Cutting Edge: Nontraditional Glass
Deadline EXTENDED: June 17th, 2018, 11:59pm MST
From their call: Complicated, amorphous, intimidating, ancient, and finicky, glass as an art material is as manifold in its adaptability as in its appearance. All forms and methods of hot or cold glass will be considered, including blown, cast, cut, lamp worked, laminated, cold fused, sculpted, and slumped. Mixed media object-based work must be no less than 60% glass. Video and audio submissions and installation works that are strongly focused on glass as a material are welcomed, but please note the gallery lacks an immersive darkened room.
Arts Benicia gallery can accommodate work from tiny to life-size, and even certain monumental scale works. If your artwork requires electrical access, has dedicated lighting, or is monumental or an installation work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details and wait for a response before applying. Entry fee.
Jurors: Carrie Lederer has been Curator of Exhibitions at Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek for more than two decades, previously working for the Falkirk Cultural Center and the Oakland Museum Association, and managing Walnut Creek’s Public Arts Program.
