Open Call Closes

Our open call for Contemporary Craft Makers and Visual Artists closed on Friday 1st June. Having been kindly shared through national and international craft and art networks we received an overwhelming response of 94 applications.

Thanks to all of those that helped spread the word of our open call, and of course to those that applied. The standard of work submitted is of a really high standard making our job incredibly hard to select those to exhibit.

The work that has been submitted ranges across mediums such as digital, video, sound, painting, text, ceramics, sculpture and photography, amongst others. One thing that many of those that submitted have in common is the blurred boundaries between whether their work is art or craft and have merged the two meanings into one piece. This reflects the intention of bringing the two 'sectors' together under one banner in one exhibition.

Over the next week Emily Bull, Context Project Manager, and Julie McCalden from Motorcade/FlashParade will be short listing and selecting those to exhibit during 'Trace', which is taking place from the 26th until the 29th July 2012 at Motorcade/FlashParade in Bristol.

We'll be sharing news of those selected right here on our blog soon.
