We’re excited to announce we are accepting submissions for the upcoming juried exhibition Sculpted Spaces, Wild Lives at the Third Street Gallery! This complementary pair of exhibitions addresses intentionally-shaped spaces and the wild lives that inhabit them.
Here’s a little more about each exhibition:
Humans shape spaces for the purposes of living and working. Far from being a simply mechanical act, the design of architecture and landscape function at the intersection of aesthetic and utilitarian purpose. These spaces define the volumes of air occupied by the human body, whether they be clean-lined, geometric, curving, flat, or soaring vertical structures. Artworks should address this theme in either a literal or abstract sense. Submissions could be inclusive of architectural renderings and landscape designs; three-dimensional models or sculptures; and photographs, drawings, paintings, or prints depicting the appearance or sensation of intentionally-shaped spaces.
Humans may create geometric structures for living and working, but craving connection to organic or animal nature, they seek immersion in the wilderness. Animalistic energy is sometimes associated with a lack of culture, control, or sophistication, but this exhibition highlights the raw dignity and resilience of the wild. Artworks may feature subject matter or content related to wildlife or wild lives, and should reflect the unboundedness, instinct, and feral grace of the undomesticated.
All works submitted for consideration will be juried by Stacy Isenbarger, artist and University of Idaho Associate Professor.
Head on out to the great outdoors and find your inspiration. Maybe it’s sitting at your favorite coffee shop in the heart of the concrete jungle or out in the well-manicured gardens. Doesn’t matter where you are, find motivation from the sculpted spaces and wild lives around you!
