Foundry Art Centre (MO), International Call for Entries: Ceramic Centric
Deadline: February 18th, 2019
About this Exhibition: It must be a human instinct to create with mud. Ancient civilizations around the globe seemed to reach the same conclusion about this resource at various times in history. If you take earth, wet it, shape it, and fire it, something useful, beautiful, and elemental is formed. From this invention, mud bricks, drinking vessels, and sculptures were created. With Ceramic Centric, we seek to celebrate how current artists translate this ancient medium. The artwork in this exhibition will be comprised primarily of clay. As creating with this medium is not limited to the three dimensional, half of the show will display wall hanging ceramic works.
Eligibility: Open to all artists 18 years & older, world-wide, both amateur & professional, working in all styles & schools of thought. This includes alternative and traditional artwork.
Entry Specifications: All ceramic media in 2D & 3D forms will be considered. The piece must be made primarily of clay (50% or more of the artwork is composed of clay). 2D work and wall hanging work must be suitably prepared to hang with all hardware readily attached. There is no minimum size requirement and larger pieces must be able to enter the gallery through an 84” x 71” doorway. Once installed, work may not exceed 11 feet in height. Any installation works must speak with Exhibitions Manager to coordinate presentation. A maximum of 3 entries per artist may be submitted for consideration.
