Call for Entries

rising_2The AAW has issued a Call for Entries for the juried exhibit “Rising” which is part of the 2014 Symposium. The theme of the exhibit is based on the name of the city that the symposium is being held in – Phoenix.

Entries will be accepted from November 1, 2013, until February 3, 2014. All applicants will receive email notification by March 31, 2014.

  • Work must be created at least in part on the lathe.
  • Work must have been created in the past 24 months.
  • There is no size limit, but only a few oversized pieces will be accepted due to space and shipping limitations. Oversized is defined as shipping in a box that exceeds 108″ (207 cm) in overall dimension (2 × width + 2 × depth + length).
  • The symposium venue does not accommodate wall-hung pieces.
  • An artist statement describing how the piece fits the theme is required. Entries may be edited for length and clarity.

  • A full-color exhibition catalog will be available. Artists whose entries are selected will receive a complimentary catalog.
