Call to Artists

Call to Artists

Crossroads Show: April 7 to May 12, 2017

The main feature of the show will be an exhibit by 4 chosen artists: Bernard Eiserloh, Doug Dacey, Christine Mariotti, and Julie McIntyre, who have collaboratively come together to create works of art jointly and in pairs inspired by the theme “crossroads”.

In addition we are calling for individual entries of artwork inspired by the “crossroads” theme.  To start the thought process, the definition of crossroads is an intersection of two or more roads; a point at which a crucial decision must be made that will have far-reaching effects – the coming together of something or the divide in the pathway that takes you away from something or someone.  This could be a literal crossroads or metaphoric – appearing linearly or as something out-of-the-box.

Artists may enter only 1 original piece on their own or 2 maximum in a collaboration between themselves and another artist in either the same or different mediums.

This is an exhibit open to all members, friends and artists 18 and older, who work in media in 2-D or 3-D featuring clay, jewelry, wood, fiber, collage, glass or metal. Artists should select their best quality pieces that have importance in their collections with artwork inspired by the lost loves in their lives, such as losing loved ones through death or relationship disintegrations, lost dreams that did not come to fruition, etc. It can be a work inspired by poetry or a quote dealing with the topic.

Artists may enter up to 3 original pieces. Work will be juried by professional jurors based on creativity, craftsmanship, and originality of concept.  Cash awards of $450, $350 and $150 plus honorable mention gift certificates will be offered for the winning artworks.

The entry form must be completed and submitted with work, along with entry form fee of $25 for 1st entry, $10 each for 2nd and 3rd entries when delivering to Tryon Arts and Crafts School at 373 Harmon Field Road in Tryon, NC.
