The Anchorage Museum is now accepting submissions for “Earth, Fire & Fibre XXIV,” their biennial juried art exhibition established to encourage Alaska artists to create new works in traditional craft materials such as fibre, clay and wood. The deadline for applications is July 1.
This year’s juror is Andrew Glasgow (www.usaprojects.org/user/andrewglasgow), retired executive director of the American Craft Council. Artworks are chosen based on an artist’s skill and forward-thinking concepts. The winner of the Juror’s Choice Award receives a $1,000 prize.
“Earth, Fire & Fibre” opens Oct. 6 and will be on view through Jan. 5, 2014 at the Anchorage Museum. After it closes in Anchorage, the exhibition will tour the state for one year.
