Glass 2017 – Call For Artists

Glass 2017 – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Glass 2017.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 11 Jun 2017

Is the glass half full or half empty?
People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
We work on shattering the glass ceiling.
The ice is as smooth as glass.

What is so magical about this substance, made from sand, that it comes up in so many proverbs and sayings? It is magical – the invention of glass allowed us, for the first time, to be able to observe things while having a barrier to keep us warm, safe, and dry. We can store liquids safely and know how much is left in the bottle. Glass is not only a practical solution to so many situations, but also the foundation for an entire area of art. Think of Dale Chihuly. Whether you create wonderful images about drinking glasses, eye glasses, wavy window panes, or glass beads, Murano glass, or beach glass, it all works.

Chosen artists for Glass 2017 will have a live exhibition in a New York City gallery, Jadite Gallery, in October, 2017. There will be an exhibition catalog and an online gallery on the NYC4PA website. Juror, Traer Scott, has juried shows for NYC4PA previously and is an excellent juror.
