COCA seeks flame-working artists for new exhibit
The Center on Contemporary Art is seeking submissions from artists for a new exhibit.
The group exhibit, “Ceci N’est Pas Une Pipe," will run Oct. 17 through Jan. 10, 2014 and feature flame-worked glass associated with the emergence of cannabis legalization. Glassware can include pipes, bubblers, tubes, vaporizers, jars, marbles, scientific glass, and other functional categories as well as non-functional fine art inspired by the movement will be considered.
Artists will be featured in a color catalog compiling artists’ statements, biographies, and images, as well as introductory essays by David Francis (Museum of Glass Curator), and Hillary Ryan (Museum of Glass Communications Director), co-curators.
An opening reception will be on on Thursday, Oct. 17. A flame-off (flameworking demo) by participating artists, is under consideration.
Artists in the Northwest states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, as well as the province of British Columbia can submit entries. Submission to the exhibit is open now at www.cocaseattle.org/submission.php. The deadline for entries is midnight on Sept. 15.
The exhibit will be on display at CoCA’s Georgetown gallery, located inside the Seattle Design Center, Suite 258, at 5701 Sixth Ave. S.
