Our next MBMAG show will be held Oct. 24 through Dec. 18, 2014 at the Pacific Grove Art Center. The entry deadline will be late August and pieces will be due in early October. Although we are still finalizing arrangements with the Center, we want to give you time to create some new and special work for this exhibit. We will accept up to three pieces from each artist. Entry fee and other details will be forthcoming as soon as possible.
The Title of the exhibit: “Small Wonders: The Magic of Macro to Micro”
We are hoping our members will challenge themselves with this exhibit. The concept stems from a field trip some of our members were taking. Mary Luke happened to see a building in downtown San Jose about which she exclaimed, “That’s an ugly building but it would make a really lovely brooch.” We liked that idea and think it can be expanded to include anything that the artist wants to use as a model to scale down to sculpture size or jewelry size or wearable art size. The sky’s the limit, literally. It could be a naturally occurring object (i.e., rock, tree, wave, etc.) or an architectural structure or a detail of something that is large. The challenge would be to re-imagine it, re-construct it, re-think it into an art piece. Along with your piece, we’d like to have a photo, graphic representation, or even the object itself, if small enough, to present next to the finished work.
Volunteers will be needed to help with all aspects of the show, from bringing snacks for the opening reception, to checking in artwork, to creating the artist’s bio book. We’ll also need furniture movers and someone who can supply and drive a truck. Please email me if you can take on a job of any size to make this show a success.
