Call For Entries - deadline extendedNow in its fourth year, the Earring Show is an exciting exhibition and sales opportunity for

contemporary, designer-makers producing wearable art.

The Earring Show will be held as a one-night fund-raiser on Sunday, May 7th, at the Craft Council of BC Gallery, Vancouver, to raise funds for the organisation and its programs, and to help promote contemporary crafts to BC. We are inviting jewellery artists from across North America to come together to showcase diverse examples of earrings, handcrafted in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials and concepts.

We encourage artists to submit both production pieces as well as one-of-a-kind work for this juried exhibition; all demonstrating a high level of skills in design and technique.

Awards will be given to artists who have demonstrated excellence in design and technique. One winner will be selected from each category and announced at the exhibition opening. Prizes T.B.A.

Exhibition grand opening: Sunday 7th May, 2017

This student online exhibition will explore how the artist rearranges, reinterprets or retells the function, form or purpose of objects from domestic life. We are looking for objects or a set of objects that have metamorphosed from its real-life counterpart.

The work selected will reflect a striving for innovation, quality, and aesthetics in craft and material-based art, along with how the work interprets the theme. 

Your $25 submission fee automatically awards you a year-long student membership to the Craft Council of BC which includes a subscription to Canad’s premier craft magazine – Studio.

This call for entry will be juried by the Online Emerging Exhibition Jurors –  Jade Beck, Janet Harrison, Emily May, Laura Meyers and Christina Shimek. These jurors are CCBC award winning emerging artists. As this is an online exhibition, the quality of your submitted images and artist statement will directly impact how the jurors assess your work.

We suggest that you submit 5 images which include different angles and at least one detail of the work. The submitted artist statement will be displayed alongside the images of the work starting May 15th, 2017 on the Craft Council site.

Deadline is April 15th, 2017 –  Apply here!
