“Call for Artists”

The Art of Re-cycle II

Where trash becomes inspiration for creativity!

January 5th – 28th, 2015


CPAC is pleased to announce a visual art exhibition, The Art of Re-cycle II. 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, re-purposed 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.

Each artist can submit up to three pieces. The entry fee is $25 for CPAC members and $35 for non-members. 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.

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

Juror: Julie Sasse, Chief Curator and Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Tucson Museum of Art

Entry Deadline: December 29, 2015
