Engaging, empowering, energising culture in Exeter

Please circulate-exhibition opportunities for designer-makers

Here are 3 opps, deadlines this summer, please can you let 3-D designer / artist-makers know about them if relevant, thank you!

1. Open call: Pour Me - in celebration of the humble jug

18 March – 7 May 2017

The exhibition will highlight how deceptively difficult it can be to make a jug; makers must consider balance and weight.  Will it pour?  Is the handle strong enough to withstand the weight of the liquid?  Is the handle pulled, extruded, cast?  Jugs can also be vessels to hold other things or be interpreted in different ways and feature in many 2D artists’ compositions.  Pour Me will explore how the jug can be interpreted in many ways, and in many different materials. We are looking for submission from makers/artists who work in tableware, vessels, sculpture, textiles, metals, silver, enamel, glass, wood.  2D interpretations can also be submitted but only in printmaking and photography (no painting).

Pour Me will show up to 3 pieces of work by each selected exhibitor and all work must be for sale.

Submission Deadline: 9.00am Monday 20 June 2016

Please submit via email:  Up to 6 digital images of work
