Call for Entry/ Appel de dossier: TIJF Enamel Exhibition fire and fusion

Call For Enamel Artists

 Posted on November 15, 2012 by fireandfusion Leave a comment

 

The  title is “fire and fusion”. Thirty to forty works will be chosen by the curatorial team (Gabrielle Castonguay, Catherine Crowe and David Hustler) to exemplify the best in Canadian enamelling. Criteria will be:

Mastery of medium

Composition and design

Creativity and/or originality

Diversity of approach

 

This exhibition will be curated we want to have an array of techniques and styles from emerging as well as established artists. Pieces will be chosen to reflect both tradition and innovation, as well as diversity of technique and outcome. Artists must live in Canada.

 

Artists will be allowed to submit up to three pieces in any form including, but not limited to sculpture, jewellery, wall pieces, and hollowware.

 

We wish to present to the public enamel work made by Canadian enamelists. At the same time we also wish to educate the public about the various possibilities that enameling offers and to demonstrate how delicate, intricate and highly complex the various processes of enameling are. Our intention is to exhibit, among the art pieces, educational material describing the work of enamel. Therefore, we invite you, if you want, to provide us information about your work as an enamelist either with a series of process shots, an explanatory video or written explanation. Please know that this is not compulsory to be admitted to the show and that chances to be selected are not augmented if you do so.  It’s only to help us to bring awareness to the public about our wonderful medium.

 

It is also our intention to have a web presence that includes and on-line record of the exhibition, and a blog. We welcome you to participate by writing a short piece (up to 250 words) about your process or an aspect of it. This can be done at any time between now and when the exhibit opens to begin building interest. Once again, this is not compulsory to be admitted to the show, but please do consider participating in this educational component, as it is an extremely important factor in getting grants.

 

You can have up to three images of a single piece, and you can submit up to three pieces. We are looking for digital images of the pieces, not the actual pieces, and not renderings.

 

The deadline for submissions has been extended to March 30th 2013

Acceptance will be send by April 15th 2013

Pieces must be received by April 25th 2013

Pieces will be returned by June 15th 2013

Blog submissions can be any time between now and May.

Appel de dossier pour artistes émailleurs/émailleures.

 Posted on December 12, 2012 by fireandfusion 3 Comments

 

DATE FINALE: 30 MARS 2013

 

 Nous organisons une exposition sur l’Art de l’émail à la Galerie Rainbow dans le marché public St. Lawrence à Toronto, ON. L’exposition qui aura lieu du 1er mai au 30 mai 2013 coïncidera avec la première Biennale de joaillerie international de Toronto (Toronto International Jewellery Festival -TIJF) ainsi qu’avec la Conférence annuelle des Orfèvres de l’Amérique du Nord (SNAG) “Meta-Mosaic”.

 

 L’exposition « Fire and fusion » présentera de trente à quarante pièces dévoilant l’excellence du travail de l’email au Canada. Les pièces seront sélectionnées par une équipe de commissaires : (Gabrielle S.Castonguay, Catherine Crowe et David Hustler).

 

 Les critères de sélections sont:

La maitrise du médium

La composition et le design

La créativité et l’originalité

La diversité dans l’approche

 

 La sélection sera faite avec le souci de démontrer une variété de techniques et de styles. Nous souhaitons présenter le travail à la fois d’artistes émergents et d’artistes déjà établis. Les pièces seront choisies selon leur caractère traditionnel et/ou innovateur. Les artistes invités à soumissionner doivent habiter le Canada. Les artistes peuvent soumettre jusqu’à trois pièces : bijoux, tableaux, sculptures, vases.

 

 Avec cette exposition nous désirons montrer au public le travail d’émailleurs, émailleures canadiens/ canadiennes tout en présentant l’émail dans un contexte éducatif; nous voulons initier le public au niveau de complexité et d’extrême délicatesse avec laquelle l’émailleur doit composer pour bien exécuter son travail et démontrer les procédés et les possibilités variés de l’email. Pour ce faire nous exposerons du matériel explicatif des techniques de l’émail au côté des œuvres présentées. Nous vous invitons donc, si vous le désirez, à nous fournir du matériel explicatif soit : photos, texte ou vidéo démontrant la technique utilisée. Sachez que de nous fournir de matériel éducatif ou non n’influencera en rien la sélection des œuvres. Ce sera seulement pour nous aider à mieux éduquer le public.

 

Nous souhaitons aussi avoir une présence sur le web. Donc il y aura du matériel visuel pour visionner l’exposition. Nous vous invitons, si vous le désirez, à participer à notre présence en ligne en écrivant un texte (maximum 250 mots) sur votre technique d’émaillage. Encore une fois ceci n’influencera en rien la sélection des œuvres. En présentant un caractère éducatif à l’exposition, nous augmentons nos chances d’obtenir une bourse pour payer les frais de l’exposition.

 

Vous pouvez soumettre jusqu’à trois images pour une pièce et vous pouvez soumettre trois pièces.

La date de tombée pour la soumission est le 30 mars 2013

La réponse sera rendue en date du 15 avril 2013

Les pièces devront être reçues avant le 25 Avril 2013

Les pièces seront retournées aux artistes en date du 15 juin 2013
