WOOD: An International Call for Works of Art Made With, By, or About Wood

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Call to Artists.

Manifest, the Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, is inviting visual artists to submit work that in some way addresses or reflects the theme of WOOD. Artists are encouraged to take a broad and creative view when interpreting the theme as it applies to their work. Artwork may be made of wood, made using wood in ways that are discernible in the finished piece, or made about the subject of wood.

Submissions can range from traditional realism to conceptual, abstract, or experimental work. This includes furniture, craftwork, fine art, sculpture, etc.

Wood has been used by people for thousands of years as construction material, for fuel, for making tools, weapons, paper, and furniture. As a product of the Earth, however, it has existed far longer than humanity, for roughly 400 million years.

Like land-based coral, its layers accumulate year by year by virtue of a living and breathing process. These layers frequently become, either through intention or circumstance, an aesthetic aspect of wood's afterlife as man-made objects. When visible this evidence of years spent living, breathing, and drinking adds compelling meaning to things made with wood.

The craftsmanship of artists and other makers elevates this latent content from something hidden to a celebratory proclamation about living.

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
