Bellevue Arts Museum is seeking artists, craftsmen, designers, and makers of all kinds working in the medium of metal to take part in its upcoming biennial exhibition.
In 2010, Bellevue Arts Museum launched the BAM Biennial, a juried exhibition occurring every two years which focuses on the work of established and emerging Northwest artists and craftsmen, emphasizing current and new work. For each edition, Bellevue Arts Museum designates a new focus of exploration, be it a specific medium, technique, process, or theme in art, craft, and design. We are pleased to announce the official call to artists for our next edition in the series, BAM Biennial 2016: Metalmorphosis.
The BAM Biennial is an opportunity for makers of all kinds to push the boundaries of their vision and skill, and for this reason, proposals for new work are strongly encouraged. The exhibition is intended to recognize the innovative and extraordinary work being produced by contemporary Northwest makers, and to celebrate the region's distinctive character. Entrants are invited to approach metal as a medium—whether through traditional expressions or from a non-traditional perspective—where concepts of art, craft, and design merge.
