Artists invited to apply for Anchorage Museum’s ‘Earth, Fire & Fibre’ exhibition
Application deadline is July 1
The Anchorage Museum is accepting submissions until July 1 for “Earth, Fire & Fibre XXIV.” This popular, biennial juried art exhibition was established to encourage Alaska artists to create new works in traditional craft materials such as fibre, clay and wood.
This year’s juror is Andrew Glasgow, retired executive director of the American Craft Council. Artworks are chosen based on an artist’s superb skill and forward-thinking concepts. The winner of the Juror’s Choice Award receives a $1,000 prize.
“Earth, Fire & Fibre” opens Oct. 6 and is on view through Jan. 5, 2014 at the Anchorage Museum. After it closes in Anchorage, the exhibition will tour the state for one year.
Interested artists can learn more and apply at callforentry.org.
The Anchorage Museum is the largest museum in Alaska and one of the top 10 most visited attractions in the state. The museum’s mission is to share and connect Alaska with the world through art, history and science. Learn more online at anchoragemuseum.org.
