Deadline: November 1

The Morean Arts Center in downtown St. Petersburg invites visual artists working primarily in clay to submit work for the exhibition ‘The Great Divide’. The thematic aspect of selected works will explore aesthetic, narrative, political or structural divides/divisions.

The exhibit runs December 14 – January 31 at the Morean Gallery.

Works will explore aesthetic, narrative, political or structural divides and divisions. At the same that our world becomes smaller due to the internet and transportation, the differences between people appear to be becoming greater. Who really knows if this is true?

At the same time, postmodernism has made possible fractured aesthetics, varying materials juxtaposing, the exciting invention of new forms with diverse application, and a seemingly odd abstraction of surfaces, relationships and casting away of what for centuries has been an assumed standard for high craftsmanship.

For this exhibition, there are no limitations to the conceptual or experimental. Both utilitarian and sculptural works are eligible.

Jury and Curator: Bruce Dehnert
