Monday Spaces, San Francisco
11-10-11: Artist Reception
The Metal Arts Guild (MAG) of San Francisco together with Monday Spaces are proud to present Conspicuous, an intimate exhibition that speaks to jewelry and how we can put it on view in our personal settings. Conspicuous is a collaborative exhibition with Anzfer Farms who will respond to the featured jewelry by creating interactive, custom displays for showcasing the work in a personal setting. Our interests are in exploring these objects as a visual experience, and the role played when they are taken out of a functional context.
Jurors Sienna Patti of Sienna Gallery, and Jonathan Anzalone & Joseph Ferriso of Anzfer Farms will select work from a national call for artists on callforentry.org. The exhibition will run November 10-21, 2011, and is concurrent with MAG?s 60th Anniversary Symposium, Forging Communities. Visit: www.metalartsguildsf.org for more information on the symposium.
Open to artists within the United States who make jewelry. Applicants do not need to be current MAG members. Jewelry specifically will be accepted, and must have been made within the last 4 years. Up to 3 pieces (2 images per piece) can be entered. Work does not have to be for sale but is encouraged as the custom displays will be available for sale. An artist bio is required, artist statement is optional.
Artists that are selected will be responsible for shipping or hand-delivering work to the venue by a specified date. Local artists are required to pick up the work at the end of the show. MAG will be responsible for the return shipping of non-local work.
Applications must be submitted digitally through www.callforentry.org.
