Watermark Art Center selected as venue for “Earth Matters”
Call for Art! Watermark Art Center is proud to announce they have been selected as the 2021 venue for the Surface Design Association Juried Member Show “Earth Matters” scheduled for September 3–October 30, 2021 in the Kaul Gallery. The Call for Art is currently open to SDA members now through June 15.
While the term matter bears different scientific and geologic connotations, EARTH MATTERS, as an exhibition theme, presents an expanded and nuanced perspective on issues relating to current ecological conditions that have been shaped by human habits.
This textile-inspired art and design exhibition will aim at not only catalyzing multilayered perspectives that present ways to critically think about and understand earth matters but raise important questions about how we cultivate eco-based approaches that engage and consider different ecologies.
The Juror for “Earth Matters” is Nnenna Okore. Focusing on concepts of recycling, transformation, and regeneration of forms, Okore says, “my work is based on observations from ecological and man-made environments. I am drawn to uniquely diverse and tactile characteristics of the collective physical world.” She works with ceramics, paper, fiber, and relief items, as well as digital components.
