Our chapter is creating art for the month of August. That gives us 31 pages.
We still have some openings for artists to participate. If you know of someone who would like to do so have them contact Barb Rehg - email :brehgstudiosatbellsouth.net
Below are the ‘rules’ for this multi chapter project.
At the next WCA National Conference this Journal will be brought there for all to see.
I look forward to seeing your creations.
Instructions for the Journal
- Topic: open to your creative inspiration - remember 2012 is WCA's 40th anniversary celebration.
- Artists may create 1 – 3 pieces. If desired, more than one person can collaborate on a piece.
- Artists may create separate pieces on their own and mail them to the liaison, or create pieces at a chapter meeting.
- Work can be created directly on the pages of the journal or created separately and affixed to the journal. Please note that it will become increasingly difficult to create work directly on the journal, as thicker artwork will begin to fan out the pages.
- Diary pages may also be altered via folding, sewing, cutting, piercing, burning, taping, etc.
- Artwork Size: No more than 4 inches high x 3 inches wide x 0.25 inch thick. Smaller is good! Piece(s) must fit into page(s) of a small journal so anything larger than the defined dimensions must be trimmed down.
- Media: any original art – painting, collage, photo, fiber, drawing, printmaking, sculpture (flat or skinny), artist book (skinny), ceramics (flat or skinny), calligraphy, mixed media, folded paper, combined words/image.
- Identify artist’s name and chapter on each page.
- Adhesives: best and easiest is Scotch brand permanent double-sided tape. Glue stick for thin pieces. You can also hand-sew pieces on but that gets tricky.
- Your artists do not have to wait for the journal to arrive to start working on their pieces. Getting a head-start enables artists to have more time to create pieces.
- Your chapter does NOT have to fill all the pages in the month. Empty pages can be shared by smaller chapters, caucuses and members-at-large.
- Document every art piece. Please email low-resolution images titled with chapter & artist’s name to mrpotanatyahoo.com. You can see artwork created here: www.ncwca.org.
