Exhibit dates: July 1-31, 2014

 

Entry Deadline: May 15th, 2014

The process and materials used to create a work of art are always of interest; with mixed media they are central to the work itself.

The essence of the mediums, their texture and look are important parts of the message conveyed.

This juried competition seeks to find the best of the layered process of “mixed media” be it paint, drawing, photography, clay, wood, found objects, fiber or whatever.

The artist must use at least two different sources of materials to create one image.

Open to both 2D and 3D artists, however 2D works may not exceed 48” in either dimension and 3D works may not exceed 4’ X 4’ X 3’ and 120 pounds.

 

Juror: Jenine Culligan,

Senior Curator, Huntington Museum of Art, Huntington, West Virginia

With over twenty five years of experience working in Museums, Culligan has organized exhibitions and worked with art from all time periods, ancient to contemporary, and all styles (traditional crafts, outsider art, prints, paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, etc.), and from many countries. Her specialty is American art from the late nineteenth century up to contemporary. She received a BA degree in Art History (minor: Studio Art) from the University of Kentucky in 1984, and an MA degree in Art History and Museum Studies in a joint program between The Cleveland Museum of Art, and Case Western Reserve University in 1987.
