Beyond the Fold

  • Deadline:
    Jan. 7, 2011, midnight
  • Location:

Desotorow Gallery announces a call to artists for “Beyond the Fold,” an exhibition to be held Feb. 4 - Feb. 15, 2011. Paper sculptures have been made since the advent of paper, utilizing techniques from origami to papier-mâché. In the modern day - where there is an oversaturation of paper products, and simultaneously a technological push towards paperless media - artists work to innovate with the paper material and the book form. Beyond the Fold examines artists who utilize paper in a way that exceeds the utilitarian, two-dimensional expectations of the material.

The juried exhibition “Beyond the Fold” is open to national and international artists of all levels. To be considered, an entry form, entry fee, artist statement and digital images of the artwork should be submitted to Desotorow Gallery by 5pm, Jan. 7, 2011. A $20 submission fee allows for the submission of up to 3 pieces of work. Artists will receive notification of the list of selected pieces through email on Jan. 14.

Further information about submitting work for the exhibition “Beyond the Fold,” including a complete list of dates, submission guidelines and forms, can be found at http://www.desotorow.org/exhibits/calls/beyondthefold.html
