Call For Entries: The Art of Applied Design

The Art of Applied Design

Deadline: July 15, 2010

The DHM Digital Gallery invites designers working in fiber to participate in The Art of Applied Design, an international juried competition.  The Gallery is operated by the Department of Design, Housing and Merchandising (DHM) at Oklahoma State University.

The Art of Applied Design is open to all applied artists age 18 or above, working in the U.S. and abroad. All submitted works must be functional objects commonly used within interior spaces, such as furnishings (hard or soft), utensils, fixtures, or containers. Entries must be original one-of-a-kind works of the submitter, completed within the preceding three years (2007 to 2010), and be represented by high quality digital images.

There is no limit on the number of objects that may be entered.  Evaluation will be based upon the creative uniqueness and originality of the work, evidence of excellence in craftsmanship, and quality of the photographic images.  Exhibition of accepted work will include notation of the artist’s name, country of residence, and e-mail address to facilitate the independent sales of exhibited work.  One entry in each material category will be selected for recognition as Best of Show for that category.

The online exhibit, September 15 to Dec. 1, 2010, will include e-mail addresses of accepted artists to facilitate independent sales of work.
