Fabricated: An Exhibition of Wearable Art

Deadline: December 3, 2012 by 6:00 pm (ONLINE), (RECEIVE) or (HAND DELIVERY)

Fabricated: An Exhibition of Wearable Art
Target Gallery
Torpedo Factory Art Center

Alexandria, VA
February 2, 2013 to March 3, 2013

Fabricated is an all-media exhibition featuring “wearable art," which refers to individually designed pieces of handmade clothing or jewelry created as fine or expressive art. While the making of any article of clothing or other wearable object typically involves aesthetic considerations, the term wearable art implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique artistic creation or statement. It is open to all artists nationally and internationally.

A non-refundable $35 entry fee includes submission for 3 pieces of artwork - each work may include one image along with only one detail image per work. $10 for each additional entry over the initial three.

Work should be less than 15 feet overall (height + width + length), with no one dimension measuring more than 7 feet. Final measurements must be inclusive of frame, if applicable. Weight may not exceed 150 pounds. All entries must have been conceived and created by the artist submitting the work and must have been created within the last 5 years. All work selected must be ready for exhibit: 2D work must be framed with secure hanging devices; 3D work must be suitably prepared with instructions for installation. The gallery reserves the right to reject work that differs from submitted images.
