Call for entries - "Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle" juried art exhibit

This was sent to me by artist Junanne Peck:

The Firehouse Studios and Gallery presents Paintings and Assemblages - Reduce Reuse Recycle, a juried art exhibition featuring new works by local and international artists. Curated by Junanne Peck.

All artists are invited to enter works of any media. Artwork must incorporate recycled materials. The exhibit will be juried by a panel of three jurors that include Junanne Peck, artist /curator; Lori Thomson, artist/gallery owner; and Susie Sweeton, City of Fort Worth Environmental Education Coordinator.

This exhibition celebrates the transcendent, innovative and experimental works of artists working with paintings, assemblages, mosaics, installations from junk, dumpster trash, found objects, cardboard and anything else our society has deemed no longer useful.

Artwork must incorporate no less than 50% recycled materials. Only work completed within the last three years will be considered. Artwork must be ready for installation at the time of delivery. No artwork shall be removed from the exhibition before the closing date. Complex installations should be coordinated and supervised by the Visual Arts Coordinator.

Please fill out the entry form and return it with your slides/photographs to:
