The James Renwick Alliance invites media based artists to submit an application to participate in the 12th Annual JRA Day, a one-day showcase for artists in the craft media. The JRA Day Artist Contract — Space Reservation Application can be found online at www.jraday.org/apply.html.

JRA Day is sponsored by the James Renwick Alliance, an independent national nonprofit organization that celebrates the achievements of America’s craft artists and fosters scholarship, education and public appreciation of craft art. The JRA was founded in 1982 and fulfills its mission through public programs, publications, recognition of craft artists, and financial support, including contributions to the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. For more information on the JRA, go to www.jra.org.

Last year’s JRA Day was a great success. The JRA plans to offer free admission and expand our efforts to promote the show. In 2018 most artists sold individual works at prices ranging from below $25 to as much as $600, and they expect a similar group of buyers this year.

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 7, 2019, at the Woman’s Club of Chevy Chase, in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The web site for the event is www.jraday.org.

Reminder: Call for Glass Artwork Entries

>Two “Call For Entries” are nearing deadline for glass artists to submit images and info. For those of you that are in need of reminding – here’s what’s coming up:

HYPEROPIA PROJECTS has a call for entries for a juried show called Superposition that challenges traditional notions of glass artwork. With a broad definition of “glass and glass related”, the organizers are looking for artists whose works inhabit so many places simultaneously that they might not fit into any of them. They 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
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 For more information about the exhibition, visit http://hyperopiaprojects.com/

Saint Louis’ Craft Alliance has announced a national invitational and juried exhibition titled “Identify Yourself” – exhibition dates are May 20-July 3 , 2011. Entry Deadline March 25th.
