Call to artists for WARE/WEAR
Deadline: January 13, 2019
Fee (USD): $25.00
Pocosin Arts School of Fine Craft, located in Columbia, NC is hosting its second annual Drinking Vessel & Earring Show Juried by Tom Bartel and Kathleen Browne. Invited artists include Nikki Couppee, Donna D'Aquino, and Jason Bige Burnett. The show opens Friday, February 22 and runs through June 29, 2019 - all works must be for sale, 60% goes to the artist. Artists are responsible for shipping to and from the show.
Functional objects differ from decorative objects through user interaction. With the intent that the object is handled and used, certain aspects of its formal creation are called to attention. Comfort, familiarity, and usability all introduce essential considerations for the functional object. Ware/Wear seeks to gather and celebrate these concerns in the form of cups and earrings, both longstanding objects in human history that have been found in some form in every civilization.
Please submit up to 3 cups, and/or pairs of earrings. Your submission(s) must be fully functional and usable.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at email@example.com for more info.
