Call for Entry - 65th Annual Art of the Northeast

The call for entry has been released for Silvermine Arts Center's 65th annual Art of the Northeast exhibition.

This year's co-curators are Michelle Grabner and Brad Killam. Together they founded and oversee two artist project spaces in the Midwest: The Suburban (est. 1999) in Oak Park, IL and the Poor Farm (est. 2009) in rural northeast Wisconsin. Killam is an Associate Professor of Art  at College of DuPage and Grabner is a Professor in the Painting and Drawing Department at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Michelle Grabner also co-curated the 2014 Whitney Biennial.



Art of the Northeast is a competition/exhibition highlighting the diversity of work that is currently being made in the Northeast by emerging and established artists. This year the exhibition will be a tightly curated show, comprised of approximately 25 artists, depending on scale. The juror will have at his discretion the ability to select a suite of three to five works by an individual artist. The Best in Show Prize is a solo exhibition at Silvermine Arts Center with a $3,000 stipend for show related expenses. To be considered for the Best in Show Prize, artists are required to enter a minimum of three works. Eligibility: Open to all artists, 17 years of age and older, residing in CT, DE, MA, MD (D.C.), ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI & VT. Original artwork in any media will be accepted. Giclée reproductions of original works will not be accepted. Eligible artwork must have been completed after January 1, 2013, and fall within the restrictions.*
---------

As a juried artist member of Silvermine Arts Center, one might think that I am a tad partial to this exhibition. And you would be right. That's because the quality of work in this exhibit is always amazing as are the artists who create it. Being as it's nearby, I get to visit and peruse the art...several times usually.

I'll be applying. Will you? Click here to be taken to the prospectus. The deadline for submissions is April 24. Good luck!

Make your mark

The March/April issue of Cloth Paper Scissors arrived a few days ago.


It's thrilling and still a bit surreal to hold the magazine in my hands 
and turn the pages to find my column. 


In Unconventional Tools part 2, I make a confession and share tips on using 
thread, yarn and cardboard to create lines with soul and character.
