In this full day workshop you will combine an ordinary book with unrelated objects and create a most unusually altered book.
Bookworms Beware, as these Busted Books will be hardly recognizable, and not at all readable, after you convert your book into a Barely Believable, work of art.
Take home your own creation based on “literature”.
Brandon Gallery has issued a “Call for Entries” for its second “Art of the Portrait” juried competition and exhibition, which runs from May 1-29, 2014.
Noreen Ring, Brandon’s chair for the event, announced that Michael Steirnagel, an accomplished portrait artist and professor of art at Palomar College in San Marcos, Calif., is juror for the event. He attended the Art Center College of Design and graduated from the University of Texas, El Paso. His work has appeared in several well-known galleries in the United States.
According to Ring, wall art cannot exceed 24 inches on either side, not including the frame, and must be ready for hanging. She said that Brandon Gallery has a prospectus and entry form at the gallery.
Entry fees are $20 for the first piece and $10 for the second and third, to a maximum of three pieces. Entries may be delivered to the gallery on April 25 or 26 between 11AM and 3PM. A public reception and awards ceremony will be held at the gallery May 3, from 5-7PM.
Brandon Gallery has scheduled a special showing of textile art for its Studio 105 wing, Noreen Ring, gallery director announced today.
According to Ring, “Living Colors” will run from March 1 through March 29 and feature fabric art of the Paradise Textile Art group, seven artists from San Diego County. She said that the art quilt critique group has met and exhibited together since 2008. The members work in distinctive styles, and some are full-time studio artists while others work full-time away from their studio.
Ring said: “All artists have exhibited in local and regional shows; and some have been accepted into prestigious national shows and won awards for their art. ‘Living Colors’ is the group’s fifth exhibit and the third at Brandon Gallery.”
There will be a public reception at the gallery Saturday, March 15, from 3-5PM.
