En Masse: An Assemblage Showcase

Hello Artists,
We invite you to contribute to our exhibit “En Masse; An Assemblage Showcase” at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. The show will open on April 13th, 2019 through May 25th, 2019.

Summary

In this exhibit, we are looking for 3-Dimensional and 2-Dimensional assembled works. The dictionary defines assemblage as: “a work of art made by grouping found or unrelated objects.” as well as “a collection or gathering of things…” We are hoping for artists to express themselves on any subject matter by using a collection of parts and pieces in the work. The parts may be disguised or outright overt, but each work of art must be made by assembling parts together to make a whole.

Number of pieces to submit: 1 – 3 pieces (no more than 3).

Here are the Rules

  • Your own original work.
  • Available for sale.
  • Created in the last 3 years.

  • Ready for hanging with appropriate hardware/wire secured to work.Wire is preferred. Artworks without hanging hardware will not be hung.
  • Follows the assemblage criteria in the above description.

Please Note…

We are looking for high quality professional execution and thoughtful content that contribute to the vision of the show as stated above.
