Call for entries: Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City

The Dahl Arts Center is looking for artists working on innovative approaches to traditional or contemporary forms of “The Art of Personal Adornment.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to show your work in the newly renovated and expanded Dahl Galleries in Rapid City, S.D., opening in January 2009.

Artists from states within 500 miles of Rapid City, S.D. are welcomed to submit materials to be considered for an inaugural exhibition in the newly expanded Dahl galleries.

Artists are required to submit four (high-quality digital) images representative of work created in the last two years. All work must be original, made by the artist, and completed within the last two years. Submitted works are open to a full range of processes and materials. Categories include but are not limited to: beadwork, metalsmithing, lapidary, natural materials, non-traditional materials and glasswork. Invitations to participate in the exhibit will be based on creativity, innovation, quality, consistency and craftsmanship of the work as shown by the images submitted. Entry Fee: $25. Jurors: Ken Bova, Elizabeth Bucheit and Bently Spang.

One of a trio of shows celebrating the grand opening of the newly expanded Dahl Arts Center in January 2009, this exhibit is designed to explore the breadth and depth of personal adornment through objects created by artists in South Dakota and its adjacent states. Cash awards will be presented. On-line and printed publications will be produced in conjunction with the exhibition.
