Call for Artists - A crafthaus Online Exhibition

Exhibition Date Aug 22 - Sept 22

Deadline to submit: July 15, 2014

 

A Harvest used to describe a traditional method of collecting ripened foods and crops, on small independent farms often managed by the family.  Today, with mechanized farming and modern industrial agriculture, the word harvest is almost redundant.  We are less connected to the land and less in touch with the seasons as most foods are available year round.  So what does “Harvest" mean in today’s world?  Is there a new context for this word? Does it have a place in the world of ideas, business and commerce or any other modern activity?

The works selected for this exhibition offer an interpretation of the traditional understanding of Harvest, a more modern take on the idea, or the juxtaposition of the two.

This crafthaus online exhibition is looking for craft work in all media.

 Ian, the stable's farrier is a shy guy, but I got him to kick on his portable forge for y'all and allow us a quick peek inside his trailer. He said it's a mess inside and he's sorry about that. Lol! Like we don't know what metal working looks…See More
