Calls for Art – Now Accepting Submissions for the following shows
Jul 1, 2018 – August 1, 2018 Reliquaries
Our theme reliquary was inspired by a wooden object fashioned to hold the arm of Saint Saens, an Irish-French saint of a sublime obscurity. In John Updike’s, “Just Looking” he writes, “A reliquary enwraps the withered, desiccated, invisible actual within an aesthetic creation. We feel slightly squeamish, as whenenever the boundary between art and reality is unsteady – for other instance, Faberge eggs, trompe l’oeil paintings, and George Segal sculptures.”
“In a reliquary, form and content have a relationship that inverts that of traditional sculpture, whose content is brute stone or wood or metal, and whose form bestows meaning and life.”
