The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (CA), Open Call for Artists: Craft Revolution

The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (CA),  Open Call for Artists: Craft Revolution

Deadline: December 29th, 2018, midnight PST

From their call:  Craft Revolution seeks works with the unity of inspiration and skill philosophers call “craft” — in drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, ceramics, weaving, architectural plans and maquettes, interior design, furniture design, fashion design, photography, video, installation art, and objects d’art in all mediums, including wood, metal, stone, clay, paper, textiles and glass.  Craft is the bond between concept and technique, the link between hand, mind, and heart. OCCCA also seeks unusual, avant-garde, hybrid artworks that merge together, in a single piece, elements of fine art and the traditional crafts. Craft Revolution will illuminate an important truth about contemporary art: we can no longer categorically separate craft, fine art, decorative art, and utilitarian, designer objects.

Sophisticated, well-crafted objects — no matter the medium — inevitably elicit a frisson of desire.Give our esteemed juror a thrill with the pure perfection of your work.

Juror: Staci Steinberger, Associate Curator, Decorative Arts and Design, Los Angeles County Museum of Art  

Sales will be promoted. OCCCA will retain a 40% commission on all sales. Entry fee.
