"BUILD" Opening Reception

National Juried Exhibition, October 7 - 29, 2016

Up from the floors, out of the walls, down from the rafters, winding, reaching, arching, grasping — from ants to kings, we love to build. This exhibition will focus on design, structure and the process of building, to include both the functional and the whimsical, mechanical, stick-built or ethereal. Both man-made and organic structures may be featured, although no materials subject to deterioration within a 30 day window will be accepted. Possible materials might include wood, metal, wire, fabric, floss, hard trash, etc. There are no size restrictions; however, space will be a consideration. The gallery includes window space, wall space (sheetrock over brick), open rafters, painted cement flooring, and a rooftop area 20 feet above ground. Please notify us if there are any display restrictions (i.e. not suitable for exterior sites). Both 2-D and 3-D work will be considered.

He has been voted one of the Top 50 architects in America by Town and Country magazine, and will serve as one of three panelists to speak on The Importance of Modernism to our Region: Then and Now at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art this September.
