contemporary, designer-makers producing wearable art.

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.

rearrange, reinterpret, retell: an exhibition
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.
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.
