2007-2008 Wind Challenge Exhibitions at Fleisher

Deadline for entries: 5:00 p.m. on March 1, 2007

The Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial announces the call for entries for next season's Wind Challenge Exhibitions. This juried, regional competition, sponsored by the Fleisher Art Memorial in cooperation with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, has gained a national reputation for excellence since its establishment in 1978. Each season, Fleisher exhibits the work of twelve selected artists in four three-person exhibitions. These Wind Challenge Exhibitions encourage recognition of local talent and serve as an incentive for members of Fleisher's diverse student audience to move forward with their own creative work.

Artists living within a fifty-mile radius of Philadelphia and working in one of the following categories may apply.

Artists may select only one category in which to apply:

Painting: All applications of medium, excluding works on paper
Works on Paper: Drawing, watercolor, printmaking, and other traditional and experimental techniques on paper
Photography: All uses of the medium
Sculpture/Installation: We encourage applications in experimental media; however, our facilities limit what can be shown in video format.
Crafts: All crafts, including ceramics, glass, fiber, metals and wood
