Exhibition Entry: The Soul of Forgotten Materials Exhibition

Gorman-Geoffrey-2019

Description

Special Exhibition: The Soul of Forgotten Materials

Call for Entries 

The Sedona Arts Center seeks works of art that are 75% made from found, discarded or reused materials. The exhibition is meant to be very inclusive with special emphasis to be placed on works that surprise us aesthetically by the presence of unusual or banal materials showing up as art, transformed by incorporation into something entirely different, a 2-D composition, 3-D sculpture or any mixed-media artwork.

Eligibility
Only original work completed within the past two years should be submitted. Works should not have been previously exhibited at the Sedona Arts Center. Copies, photographs, and digital artwork will not be included in this exhibition.  All exhibited work must be for sale. Artwork made by students in the workshop, “Finding the Soul of Forgotten Materials”, taught by Geoffrey Gorman will be included in the exhibition if the student wishes to participate.
