“Glow”

CAL’s 2017 GOLD MEDAL Show

SHOW DATES

October 3 – October 21, 2017

 

JUROR
Donna Geist Buch
Artist Statement
My paintings are developed on flat surfaces, by creating layers and working in stages.  I use strong colors to show intense emotions, combined with texture creating a visual and tactile experience. The quick drying properties of acrylic paint with the addition of acrylic mediums, helps me to have better control of viscosity, color saturation, and luster. It also allows me to layer colors using other paints and mediums to enhance my work.  I am utilizing shapes, forms, color and lines to create a composition, depicting the imagery and the illusion of visible reality.

Artwork entries must be original and of the artist’s own execution, completed by the entrant within the past 3 years, and not previously shown in any CAL (or VAG) Juried Show.  DO NOT SUBMIT student work, workshop work, paint-along work, copycat work or works which violate copyright laws.

Once artwork is submitted it may not be withdrawn by the artist. Accepted artwork must remain hanging until the end of the show.

ARTWORK FORMAT, PRESENTATION & SIZE REQUIREMENTS
Artwork submissions are limited to five (5) original artworks per artist in the following media: drawing, photographs and digital art, mixed media and painting and sculpture. All works on paper must be matted, framed and covered with glass or Plexiglas.  Frames must be in good condition.

Entries must be dry, properly prepared for exhibition and properly equipped with wire for hanging. The wire and eye screws must not show when the artwork is hung. Gallery wrapped canvas does not require framing unless the edges are unfinished. Maximum weight for any artwork is 10 lbs. per foot of lineal width. Damaged artwork, mats, frames, glass and Plexiglas, and frames which have brackets will not be accepted.   

If your work has special details that your primary (overall) image cannot properly display, you may enter the work as a 3D work instead.  Then you can include 1 or 2 supplemental images of details to show these special qualities.  The other information about size and medium will clearly indicate it is really a 2D work, so there will not be any ambiguity about what it actually is."

Artwork which involves motion is difficult to show properly on OJS so brief video clips of said artwork can be sent via email to Marian at:  marian@fortunatifineart.com
