A Day in June

June 1 – 30, 2016

“And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days”

Technically, a day in June is not that rare. They do account for about 1/12 of all the days we live. But the metaphorical day in June, that is rare. It’s that special day we hope to enjoy once in a great while. Our June show will celebrate these rare days, described so aptly in the poem by James Russell Lowell. We want images of blue skies, green fields, and rippling brooks, of course. But more than that, we’d like to have artwork inspired by everything that early summer brings: nesting birds, wild flowers, picnics, gardening, swimming, road trips.

Artists may submit up to three jpg images at 300 dpi and no longer than 1800 pixels on longest side. Prospectus is available on the TVAA website at www.tvaa.org  or from Shari.

Deadline for submission is May 20, 2016. Send entries to Curator Shari Hornish at: sharihornish@yahoo.com.

The Greater Denton Arts Council announces the opening of its 2016 Call for Entries for the 29th annual Materials: Hard & Soft National Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition. Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard & Soft began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough.

The exhibition celebrates the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media. Drawing hundreds of applications from across the United States each year, approximately 70 works will be selected for exhibition by our 2016 Juror, Elizabeth Kozlowski.

As the curator of the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Kozlowski has over 12 years of curatorial and gallery experience with a specialty in contemporary ceramics. Of the works selected, Juror Awards in the amounts of $1,000, $750, $500 and $250 will be presented.
