calls to artists
We invite artists to submit their artwork for consideration for future exhibits. The following are exhibits scheduled for 2016 - we look forward to hearing from you.
Artists are working to dismantle a troubling trend towards violence by waging a counter maneuver at Studio Place Arts during July/August 2016 intended to incite compassion and beauty. Fiber artists will deploy their craftsmanship in an exhibit that shares their traditional and sometimes unconventional arsenal of threads, textiles, wool, needles and looms. These artist members of the Vermont “battalion” of the national Surface Design Association will invade the main floor gallery at Studio Place Arts with extreme examples of exquisiteness.
Concurrent with the exhibit indoors, other artists will be involved in courageous public and clandestine installations of their work outdoors, called “Soft Bomb Barre.” These varied “art explosions” (large and small-scale installations) around Barre involve a variety of fibers – such as “upcycled” fabrics, yarn, rope, and other items – and are intended to be a comforting, loving, and exhilarating resistance to the tactics used beyond our reach. Radical? Yes; join us as we strike back with art. (Main Fl Gallery)
Exhibit Dates: July 26 – August 27, 2016.
