Call for Craftwork — HSL fall 2019 exhibit
WVU Art in the Libraries, in collaboration with Health Sciences Center, is seeking visual artists in the health care field working at WVU and WVU Medicine to participate in a group exhibition to take place in the fall of 2019 in the WVU Health Sciences Library.
WVU Art in the Libraries invites Healthcare professionals at WVU Health Sciences to submit their creative work for the second Community Show at Health Sciences Library in the fall of 2019. This time, the focus will be on handmade art and crafts—including pottery, jewelry, fine art, leather, metal, wood, glass, photography, textiles, knitting, and more.
We want to know what handmade art and crafts the WVU health professionals are making!
Any part or full time Health Sciences staff, faculty, or students, may submit any ready-to-display, craft work of any media or theme for this exhibition. All levels will be considered.
The facilities include limited wall space and display cases in the Health Sciences Library, on the 2nd floor of the Health Sciences Center of West Virginia University. There is ample natural and artificial overhead lighting. Traffic includes medical undergraduate, graduate students, faculty and other professionals in the health and medical field as well as prominent campus visitors and others using the library facilities.
Contributors are responsible for transporting craftwork to and from the Library if their work is accepted. Libraries hold the University insurance if loan form is filled out and signed, though security is limited to the access services staff of the Library during open hours.
To participate: Contact WVU Libraries Exhibits Coordinator, Sally Deskins, firstname.lastname@example.org, 304.293.0369. Feel free to send images, ideas, websites, etc. by May 31, 2019, with the media, size, description and your title/department.
Submissions will be juried by the Art in the Libraries committee. Response to submissions will be made via email by June 30, 2019. Exhibition will run approximately August 15 thru December 30, 2019, with a reception to be announced.
