CALL FOR ENTRY ONoff: An Exhibition of Makers that work ON and off the body

Event Description

One would expect Jewelry artists to be limited to objects of personal adornment, but many contemporary makers in this field have gone beyond the constraints of functionality to pursue conceptual interests in areas such as photography, kinetics and sculpture.

This exhibition seeks makers whose work demands exploration both on and off of the body. What happens when a metalsmith goes beyond the boundaries of the wearable? How does the work change when function and jewelry mechanics no longer need to be considered? Can the conversation continue seamlessly from a necklace into an installation or sculpture? 

We will be accepting submissions from artists who make jewelry or wearable objects in addition to another media or format. The exhibition will feature two works by each artist selected: one piece of jewelry or wearable object and one piece that shifts in scale, medium or material in order to further investigate their ideas.

This exhibition will be presented at SooLOCAL: A Division of Soo Visual Arts Center to run in conjunction with the 2014 SNAG conference in Minneapolis, MN. Minneapolis artists are highly encouraged to apply.

Juror: Susie Ganch 

Susie Ganch is currently Associate Professor and Head of the Metals Program at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. She is also Director of Radical Jewelry Makeover, an international traveling community jewelry mining and recycling project. 

Exhibition Organizers: Sarah Holden and Kat Cole

Deadline for submissions: January 19th, 2014

Entry Fee: $25
