Call For Entries

This show is for all the Marcel Duchamps, the Robert Rauschenbergs and Jasper Johns of the world, artists who rearrange, re-glue, re-engineer, or repurpose ready made materials of a non-precious nature into works of art. 2-D and 3-D artists are encouraged to apply. Dumpster-diving is not required but being a visionary able to re-imagine materials intended for one purpose into another is highly preferred.

Images – Minimum: 1, Maximum: 3, if 3-D you may submit 2 shots per piece


Theresa Clowes has been exploring the properties of textiles for more than 20 years. In addition to being a professional artist, she is also an experienced teacher. Clowes was a Senior Instructor at Colorado Academy for 10 years and is currently the Chair of Fine Arts and Art Education at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD). Her artwork incorporates juxtapositions: textiles and architecture, ephemeral fabric and discarded objects, translucency and opaqueness. Her work was recently exhibited locally at the Buell Theater, Vertigo Art Space and Edge Gallery and nationally in Kansas City, Detroit, Houston, Aspen, and Portland, Oregon. She is also a founding member of TANK Studios.

Judging the work will rely on overall impact, content, composition and mastery of techniques. Attention to creativity and craftsmanship is a very important part of this as well.
