“Call for Artists”

The Art of Recycle VI

April 2 – May 17, 2019

CPAC is pleased to announce a visual art exhibition, The Art of Re-cycle VI. The purpose of this exhibition is to demonstrate creative ways to utilize elements that are considered junk. Artists are being asked to produce artwork that consists of at least 75% re-cycled, discarded, repurposed and/or found materials. This includes items that would be found in your garage, in your waste paper basket, on a walk, including natural objects such as feathers, bones, sticks, bark, etc. What better way to exercise your imagination than to produce artwork by re-using supplies to help our environment and planet!

Arizona artists are invited to participate in this juried exhibition at CPAC. Artists are encouraged to provide an artist statement describing the philosophy or aim of your work including why you work with materials that would be discarded. These can be included on the entry form or provided on an attachment.

Arizona artists are invited to participate in this juried exhibition at CPAC. Each artist can submit up to three pieces. The entry fee is $30. All artwork must be for sale. CPAC will retain 25% of the sale & handle the paper work. Please remember this as you price your work on your entry form. Artist agree to pay CPAC their 25% commission on any work displayed during the exhibit that is sold within 30 days after take-down of the show.

Prizes: First Place – $200, Second Place – $150, Third Place – $100

Juror/Judge: Rick Wheeler

Early in his art education, Rick received a scholarship to study drawing and painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, as well as taking illustration courses at the San Francisco Academy of Art University. He later completed his B.A. in Fine Art at Prescott College, Arizona.

His scratchboard/watercolor work has become his signature technique, although he enjoys working in a variety of other media, including acrylics, oils, and watercolor and assemblage, some of which are display at his Lowe House studio in Tubac.
