CALL TO FINE CRAFT ARTISTS.

Please feel free to share information about this competition on your website, blog, etc. The success of the 2008 Art in the Round Contest relies on press coverage, online networking, and word of mouth. Community art centers benefit from each entry.

For the purposes of this competition, “Art in the Round” is defined as original, creative interpretations of the vessel form, including bowls, platters, teapots, vases, urns, and other artful vessel forms. Media: glass, ceramics, wood, metal, gourds, basketry, and mixed/other media.

Fine craft artists may submit images of their original work. Three works per entry. $25 entry fee. Each entry fee will be donated to the community art center of the artist’s choice.

Registration begins June 1, 2008 and runs through August 15, 2008. Early registration is suggested. To learn more, visit www.artintheroundcontest.com (http://www.artintheroundcontest.com/).
