Jacoby Arts Center presents a call for entries for juried exhibit, “Art is…wearable.” All media juried exhibit. This fiber art and/or textile exhibition seeks to reveal to the community the artists’ state of mind through the art of fashion. Jacoby Arts Center wants to begin a dialogue about art that is wearable, so artists are asked to tell their story and allow the viewer to see their self-expression. The exhibition will be based on using textile and/or fiber art materials or techniques to create a work that is wearable and self-expressive. Accepted artists are encouraged to wear one of their creations to the opening reception. Size limits: not to exceed 60" any direction; not to exceed 50 lbs. All artwork submitted for jurying must be available for the entire exhibition. Artwork will be pinned to the wall; if your work requires a stand, mannequin, or some other form, artist must provide that for exhibition. Exhibit dates: September 4-29, 2019. Free reception September 6, 6-8 p.m. Juried by jpegs online (through EntryThingy). Application deadline: July 10, 2019, 5 p.m. $10/up to 5 artworks. FMI: Jacoby Arts Center, 627 E. Broadway, Alton, IL 62002. Apply.
