University of Oklahoma School of Visual Arts, National Call for Ceramic Artists: The Eloquent Vessel Ceramics Exhibition
Deadline: April 12th, 2019, 5:00pm MT
From their call: The University of Oklahoma School of Visual Arts invites artists to submit works that engage the idea of “the vessel.” Throughout the history of ceramic art the vessel has been a creative impetus to explore the vessel as spiritual, functional, controversial, and esoteric. This exhibition seeks to highlight the captivating and compelling ways contemporary ceramic artists across the U.S. produce vessels today. Both functional and sculptural approaches to the theme are encouraged. Artists may engage other materials so long as the juror identifies that 70% of the work is made from ceramic material. Entry fee.
Awards: The juror will select a $350 first place, a $200 second place. and $100 third place award, as well as, honorable mention awards as determined. A digital exhibition catalog and website will be created for this exhibition and featured by OUSoVA.
Juror: Doug Casebeer is the newest Resident Artist at the OU School of Visual Arts. Prior to taking the position at OU, Doug was the Associate Director and Artistic Director for Ceramics at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
Size Limitations: Works up to 14” x 14” x 20” will be considered.
