Lightheaded: New directions in Fine-Craft Lighting

February 9 – March 24, 2018

Location: Florida CraftArt, 501 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, Florida

Since fire, light has been utilitarian, decorative, and such a routine part of our existence that often we don’t mark its significance. This exhibit promises to make viewers take a renewed look at fine-craft lighting. It presents new materials paired with lighting, shows current trends in using LED lights, and pushes the audience to consider amping up the art in their own home lighting. Each of the following media will be represented: Clay, Wood, Glass, Fiber (paper), Metal and Jewelry. We’ll have chandeliers, floor lamps, table lamps, whimsical lamps and serious artistic lights, as well as art to wear.

ELIGIBILITY : Artists are eligible to submit recent work related to the theme.

FEES: Non-refundable. – Florida CraftArt members: $25 for up to 6 works  |  Nonmembers: $40 for up to 6 works

CURATORS AND JURY: Curated by Mary Anna Murphy and Catherine Woods. A jury panel will use your digital images to select entries based on originality, creativity, quality and complexity of workmanship, artistry and impact as represented in the images submitted. Cash prizes will be awarded.

DEADLINE: Nov. 30, 2017
