Artist's Vision exhibit applicants sought
The Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts has released a call to artists for its Artist's Vision Juried Exhibit: "Artifacts of a Journey." The exhibit will document the process a work of art takes on the road to creation, and will explore the changes artists make to original ideas while creating the physical object, and the byways and cul-de-sacs their minds take while getting there.
In response to the Festival's Special Exhibit whose media is 3D printing, Artist's Vision is asking applicants to compare the process of information transfer that takes place in digital making with the process of thought and action that takes place in physical making. Art is a process, and in this exhibit that process is both the topic and the end result. Artists are invited to submit both traditional and non-traditional artworks that answer this question: What is your process of making and how does your art reflect this journey? Applicants are encouraged to be creative, playful and dig into the rich inspiration that is your individual process.
Application deadline is Feb. 18 and jury results will be emailed to artists March 4. Art accepted into the exhibit must be delivered between 1 and 4 p.m. June 17 at Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S. State St. in Lake Oswego.
The Festival of the Arts will be held from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. June 22 and 23 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 23. For complete information about the exhibit and the Festival visit lakewood-center.org.
