APPLICATION DEADLINE FEBRUARY 11th
WHEN – June 2011, in conjunction with the Glass Art Society Conference
WHERE – Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle Washington.

Call for Sculptural Glass Entries

>HYPEROPIA PROJECTS has sent out a call for entries for a juried show called Superposition that challenges traditional notions of glass artwork.

Made up of a group of practicing artists with backgrounds in glass art (Helen Lee, Alexander Rosenberg and Matthew Szösz ), Hyperopia Projects focuses on artwork that is outside the traditional glass world, drawing simultaneously from the glass, sculpture and/or new media disciplines – hovering in a “state of superposition, between disciplines and media, with infinite possibility and little actual opportunity — i.e., the discomfort of glass” They are seeking “to support a longer view of where glass is headed — where the identity of glass may be intermingled with the larger world of contemporary art.”Call For Entries:

{SUPERPOSITION} will be a juried show of sculptural glass and glass related sculpture to be held at the Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle WA in June, 2011 concurrent with the Glass Art Society Conference. They are now accepting submissions.

“We are looking for artists whose works inhabit so many places simultaneously that they might not fit into any of them. We are interested in works that directly address this condition of being in multiple places at once, as well as projects produced by artists who inhabit the fringes of genres.

The conventional work and commerce associated with glass is limited in scope, exhibition space, and growth. There is a general lack of awareness in greater contemporary practice of the fertile growth and development of glass as a sculptural medium in recent years.

Material-based artists offer a bridging ground, coming out of the material and physical understanding of their traditions and exploring the conceptual territory offered by contemporary practice, often creating their own definitions of what they are doing. Likewise, non-glass artists approach material and the issues surrounding glass from fresh and intriguing perspectives, mapping areas outside conventional glass practice, but linked to the whole.”

APPLICATION DEADLINE | FEBRUARY 11th
WHEN – June 2011, in conjunction with the Glass Art Society Conference

WHERE – Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle Washington.

JURORS – Jin Hongo, Jocelyne Prince, Michael Scheiner, Jack Wax

APPLICATION DEADLINE – February 11th, 2011
