Hollowform: Call for Entries

Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 2.21.14 PM

Enclosed vessels carry such a rich history in both their contents, their creation and the reflections of the society that created them. The Cultural Arts Center seeks to further understanding of the “format” across mediums – shape, texture, primary mass, usability, ceremony, rhythm, shoulder, mouth, and lid – the common language of the hollow vessel. Sculptors, this means you!

Deadline for submission is October 18!

With this event, CAC hope exhibit hollow vessels (literal or interpretive) in wood, glass, or ceramic mediums. Hollowform will provide networking opportunities and connections between disciplines that will add more value to artists’ work and create opportunities for collaboration, promotion and elevation of value in their collective work.

Hollowform will be exhibited from November 21 to December 27, 2014 in the Cultural Arts Center Main Hall Gallery. An Opening Reception is to be held on Nov. 21 from 6 – 8 pm.

Use your imagination to interpret to viewers the best use of negative space. Find out more, or apply today!

Kettering, OH – Rosewood Gallery in Kettering, Ohio, announces a call for entries for HWD 2013:  Regional Sculpture Competition.  Artists from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia are invited to enter original sculptures created from any 3-D media or combination of media including clay, wood, glass, metal, fiber and stone.  The work must be able to fit through the 34″ x 79″ doorway and must have been created within the last four years.  Jurying will be done from digital images. Work previously exhibited at Rosewood is not eligible. Completed entries (CD or e-mail, entry form and non-refundable check of $20.00 for up to 3 works), will be accepted through June 29, 2013.  The exhibit runs from August 26 – September 27, 2013.

The juror for HWD 2013 is Hunter Stamps. Stamps is Assistant Professor of Ceramic Sculpture at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. Hunter previously taught at the University of Central Arkansas, the University of Arkansas-Little Rock and at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.  Hunter received his M.F.A. from Indiana University in Bloomington and his B.F.A. from the University of North Carolina in Asheville. The mixed media sculptures he creates incorporate ceramics, fabricated metal, molds, encaustics, rubbers, and resins.  The psychologically charged forms communicate an abject and fragmented aspect of the human condition. Hunter’s work has been exhibited in over one hundred juried, invitational and solo exhibitions, including galleries across the nation as well as China, Germany, Austria, Croatia and Spain. Images of his work have been published in publications such as Ceramics Monthly and other scholarly journals, newspapers and exhibition catalogues. Hunter is fascinated with kiln technology, and over the years has participated in the construction of several soda, salt, wood and oil burning kilns. While at Indiana University and the University of Kentucky, he led undergraduates in researching, designing and constructing kilns fueled by used vegetable oil from local restaurants.
