Artist Challenge for 2017: Vessel
Any one can make a vessel by upcycling! Let your imagination grow and join the crackedpots Artist Challenge.
The artist challenge is free and open to the public. We request those that want to participate adhere to the crackedpots' criteria and use at least 80% recycled materials in your work. The public will vote on the pieces and the artist who wins will receive a cash prize. All pieces can be sold and crackedpots will not take a commission from these sales.
If you need interesting materials for this check out ReClaimitpdx.org and use materials rescued from the dump.
Please sign up on the form to the left. We limit it to 2 entries per person. All entries will need to be brought for display by 10am on Tuesday, August 1st. Once you sign up you will be contacted and provided instructions about where and when to bring your entries to the grounds of McMenamins Edgefield.
****CALL FOR ENTRIES*****
Open to all Artists working with recycled or reused materials!
Your entry will be eligible to win the “People’s Choice” vote award!
Each year, the Cracked Pots Edgefield show features a special element to delight the public and to further educate them about creative reuse. We call this section of the show the Artists’ Challenge.
We are keeping the theme deliberately “open”. You can make whatever suits your fancy and interpret the theme in whatever way you wish. Your art piece may be tiny or large, ornamental or useful, made of any recycled or reused medium. We welcome your creativity and imagination!
