I got this email yesterday from one of the metals professors:
"Dear Mari Fray,
I have really exciting news for you…Craft Material Studies faculty nominated your work (please speak to Susie Ganch about the particulars) to be considered for the American Craft Council show in Baltimore. Craft Material Studies department is provided with a 10 x 15 foot booth at the ACC Show in Baltimore, February 22-28, 2009 to exhibit students’ talent. This initiative is part of American Craft Council “School to Market” program. For more information about American Craft Council, please go to http://www.craftcouncil.org/.
I teach in Jewelry/Metals program and I am in charge of organizing this wonderful opportunity along with students from CRAF491 ACC Baltimore course.
At the moment, I am trying to consolidate images from all the students and recent alumni who have been nominated so far for this opportunity and have work available for exhibit in February 2008. Due to space limitation, the department will be unable to exhibit all of your wonderful works. Therefore, a jury composed of current full-time faculty will select the works that will travel to Baltimore on Novemer 3rd.
If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, e-mail NPINCHUK@YAHOO.COM or deliver the following information to me in person by October 22th at the latest:
1. digital images of nominated work available for exhibit in February
minimum 950 pixels in the shortest dimension (if you have recently made work that you feel is compatible, consider submitting this work for jurying as well). Please remember that the quality of images is really important in the jurying process.
2. title your digital files as follows: first name initial, last name, number of the
image, so for example my name is Natalya Pinchuk, so my image file names would be nPinchuk1, nPinchuk2, nPinchuk3…
3. word document listing file names, title of the piece, dimensions and
materials, approximate weight; your full name, address, e-mail, current
October 22 deadline for submitting application materials for jurying to Natalya
November 3 jurying
November 4-5 notification of acceptance/rejection
This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your work and talent to gallery owners, curators and the general public (about 20,000 visitors). Last year, Craft/Material Studies’ booth received a lot of praise and attention! Please be prompt with your response. If you have any question, feel free to e-mail or call me at ***-***-****, or stop by during my office. Thank you.
