About the International Centre for Sculpture

Since the dawn of human history, men and women have shaped everyday objects into special forms. In so doing, they have left behind traces of their own lives and the world of their imagination. All cultures known to us, on any of our continents, have thus created sculptures in which past, present, and future are intertwined in forms of everlasting beauty. They will continue to generate significant expressions of mankind’s own perceptions in the future.

As part of our wholehearted commitment to this tradition, CIS strongly believes in the potential for development that is offered by three-dimensional art. With the aim of promoting the artists working in the field, CIS is committed to the creation of the Centre as a place where this tradition is developed and will be celebrated further in the years to come.

Odds And Ends (Ann Arbor, MI) – Call For Artists

Ann Arbor Art Center announces a call for artists for Odds and Ends, an exhibition of collage works. Referencing both classic and contemporary techniques, the exhibition surveys how traditions have evolved and celebrates the ways artists find to continually re-imagine materials. This exhibition welcomes artists that employ a range of collage techniques in any medium (2-D and 3-D). In addition to traditional paper collages, artists working in performance, sculpture, installation, ceramics, sound, and digital media are encouraged to submit work for consideration.

Deadline: 19 Apr 2019

The Odds and Ends call for entry is open to any artist over the age of 18 who currently resides in the US. Artists are invited to submit up to three images per $35 entry in any combination of individual artwork or detail images. Artworks must have been created within the past three years and not previously shown in any other Ann Arbor Art Center exhibitions. There are no restrictions on artwork dimensions however artists are encouraged to review the gallery space diagram to help guide their submission.

The Odds and Ends jurying process is anonymous; however, artists must submit a bio and CV as separate .doc or .pdf documents. Label the files using the following format: Lastname_Firstname_Bio and Lastname_Firstname_CV. This is a juried exhibition and all entries must be submitted digitally for consideration. Submission does not guarantee artwork acceptance and submission fees are non-refundable. Submissions will not be accepted past the deadline.

Accepted artwork must arrive “ready to hang” – the Art Center reserves the right to decline artworks that do not meet gallery standards or do not represent artist submission. Artists are expected to provide components necessary for special/nontraditional installations. For shipped artwork, artists are responsible for all shipping costs and insurance, if applicable. It is preferable that artworks are for sale. The Art Center retains a 50% commission on all sold artwork.

Odds And Ends Juror: John Gutoskey

John Gutoskey is an artist, designer, printmaker, and collector. Early in his career, John worked as a costume designer and as a specialist in costume crafts, where he worked on productions in New York City and across the US in theater, opera, dance, film, and television. He taught classes in millinery, mask making, and fabric dyeing at the University of Michigan in the Department of Theater.

In the 1990‘s, John returned to his studio with a newfound interest in making art on his own terms. It resulted in an outpouring of new work. Exploring the media of assemblage (through found objects), collage, printmaking, and installation, he was inspired by the works of Joseph Cornell, Betye Saar, Lucas Samaras, outsider art, Art Brut, and religious art to evolve his own unmistakable style: a perfect mirror for his gregarious, highly animated personality. The obsessive collector in Gutoskey met the trained visual artist half-way.

John earned his BFA in theater design with a minor in sculpture from Webster University in St. Louis. He earned his MFA from the University of Michigan’s School of Art & Design where he studied printmaking & installation art, and also completed a certificate in LGBTQ Studies. John is the owner of JG Studio and the A2 Print Studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
