( Un)Contained Vessels

Deadline: April 15, 2007

The Center for Book Arts is pleased to invite Artist Members to submit artworks created between 2004 and 2007 to be considered for the 2007 Artist Members Exhibition tentatively titled: ( Un)Contained Vessels. The exhibition is to be organized by Pamela Spitzmueller, Book Artist and James W. Needham Chief Conservator for Special Collections, The Harvard University Library and the College Library, and Alexander Campos, CBA's Executive Director.

The theme of the 2007 members exhibition examines the container not as merely a functional holding place, but as an integrated/activated part of the piece that is equally important and even enhances the art object it houses. Artworks featured in this exhibition represent a broad range of art containers that are more conceptually based and offer lyrical interpretations that challenge the traditional notion of the "box" (container). Additionally, vessels that can provide alternative presentations or unleash new meaning, form, and/or function will be considered.

Please note that The Center's gallery wall space is limited: the gallery cases cannot accommodate pieces standing taller than 23 inches or wider than 40 inches and there is limited wall space for display. Although, free-standing sculptural floor pieces are acceptable. Artists are invited to submit as many works via slides (no original artwork) for review, however, no more than 12 slides will be accepted to be reviewed. All slides must be properly labeled and accompanied by a slide list with name, title, year created, dimensions, medium/materials, and credited properly (authors, collector, etc.)

Due Date: August 31, 2006

The challenge this year will be to make a piece that depicts yours or someone elses attempt to. “Do small things with great love.” It extends the idea of last year’s theme to include the idea that we can all make some small difference.

So the challenge this year is to depict doing small things with great love in a small format quilt or mixed media fiber piece. The decision to use the smaller format is to make storage and traveling easier, in addition to encourage sales of the work.

Complete details and the entry form can be found on the Fiber Arts Connection of Southern California website.

Dayton Visual Arts Center

Deadline: September 8, 2006 at 6:00 p.m.

The Dayton Visual Arts Center gallery exhibits artwork of all kinds, and serves artists of all stripes - from emerging to established - working in all media.

The majority of our exhibitions are scheduled from a biennial Call for Entries. An outside jury of three art professionals review and score submitted proposals and images. The resulting recommendations are reviewed by an Exhibition and Programming Committee. These board members and community volunteers plan two seasons of shows from the most competitive entries. The schedule is then approved by DVAC's Board of Trustees.

We plan our main exhibition schedule about 2-1/2 years in advance. The gallery is currently booked through August 2007. Our next Call for Entries will take place in the autumn of 2006. The prospectus is available here:

You do not have to be a member to submit a proposal, though members may submit one proposal free of charge.

The DVAC gallery maintains professional standards in installation and presentation, but also serves as a multipurpose space for community events, lectures, and receptions. Due to the nature of how this space is used, there may be some limitations on 3-D work. Artwork may need to be moved at times for events.

Sale of work exhibited in the gallery is encouraged.


All entries received by 6 p.m. on Sept. 8, 2006 will be reviewed. Notification of jury time and date, which is open to the public, will be sent by Sept. 29.

The application fee for each proposal is $30; this fee is waived for the first application from any current DVAC member.
