National Deadline: August 15, 2014 - Highly regarded Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center, in association with the Smithsonian Institution, announces a call for artists for "Feast Your Eyes: The Art of Food", a national juried exhibition on display October 17, 2014 - January 4, 2015, at the spacious Main Gallery of Annmarie’s award-winning Murray Arts Building.
Open to all media; small to large scale installations; indoor & outdoor works; cash awards.
Ever since prehistoric artists created spectacular hunting scenes on the walls of caves, cuisine and culture have met in art. We have an undeniable sensory connection to food - we love its taste, form, color, texture, aroma and sound (think sizzling bacon or pouring coffee). And we love to explore its many cultural differences. Food can be more than sustenance; food can be a passion, an entertaining and delicious escape, a comfort, or an obsession. Food is vital to our lives and is certainly at the heart of every celebration. Food is the subject of endless books, news reports, scientific studies, social media posts, and conversations. We are deeply interested in its sustainability, production, processing, distribution, scarcity, quantity, quality, composition, and price. This show invites artists to explore these and other food-related issues, from the profound to the ridiculous. The goal is to create a rich and varied exhibit that honors the complexity of our relationship with food. All media welcome; small to large-scale installations; new media encouraged; indoor and outdoor works accepted; cash awards.
All media types are welcome; small to large scale; indoors and outdoors. The exhibition is open to artists age 18 and older working in the U.S.
Annmarie will present cash awards to outstanding work.
