Call to Artists!!! Floral AnthologyPosted by admin on Mar 22, 2011 in Artist Call, Exhibit | 0 comments
Submissions are closed, but be sure to put the artist reception on your calendar MAY 7th, from 4-6 PM at the Studio Channel Islands Gallery.
Studio Channel Islands Art Center invites artists to submit traditional as well as unconventional floral works for a juried exhibition “Floral Anthology” at the Studio Channel Islands Gallery.
The exhibition will be juried and judged by Tony Askew, Professor of Art, Westmont College. Tony Askew has worked as an educator and artist for over 35 years. “I continually hope that my work reflects the optimism and zeal that life holds for me. Ideally I like my work to combine three things: a child-like quality, positive and uninhibited; Eastern awareness of tradition and ceremony as necessary to the act of creating; and the sense of a work shifting away from the subject (and from realism) toward process (activity) doing, seeing, and inventing.”
Three cash awards will be given. In addition, Tony Askew will award Honorable Mentions.
Images can be submitted electronically via email or mailed to the Gallery as a Photo CD. The submission deadline is April 15th, 2011.
