[Call for Entries] Color Embraced by Metalsmiths


#1

Call for Entries:
Ganoksin’s 4th Annual Exhibition: “Color Embraced by Metalsmiths”

Ganoksin is pleased to announce its fourth annual International
Online Jewelry Exhibition.

Entries will be accepted from now until February 15, 2014

This year’s theme will be “Changing Hues: Color Embraced by
Metalsmiths Around the World.”

The exhibition is open to all metalsmiths, professional and amateur,
advanced and beginner, around the world.

The exhibition is seeking works whose primary theme is color, whether
that be using colored materials, exploring creating colored surfaces,
or encasing the object in color. Works should be aboutCOLOR- not
color as an accent or focal point, but with color embraced as their
primary visual focus.

Works where color is not the primary visual element will be rejected.

As this is an online exhibition the work will only be seen via the
photographs metalsmiths submit. It is therefore vital that these be
in focus, on a neutral background (preferably not textured), and do
an excellent job allowing the viewer to really see the piece and the
workmanship involved. Any photographs not meeting exhibition
standards will not be used, and the submitting metalsmith will be
asked to re-submit the entry with a higher quality of photograph.

Works will be juried by the curator and director.
