Pacific Rim Sculptors (CA), Call for San Francisco Bay Area Artists*: Forms & Sequences
Deadline: May 15th, 2018
From their call: Pacific Rim Sculptors (PRS) in partnership with Siskiyou Arts Museum presents “Forms & Sequences”, a juried exhibition of contemporary sculpture by artists living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond*.
Sculpture has form, but that form often evolves over time in a sequence of shapes and ideas. Sometimes the sculptor captures that sequence within a single form, or creates a sequence of forms as an aggregate piece. Participating artists are asked to consider loosely, how “Forms & Sequences” relates to their work and forefront that in this juried show of contemporary sculpture. Sculptors may choose to focus on either, forms or sequences, or both.
