Deadline: Jan. 8, 2017 – National Juried Call: Iteration

Theme: Iteration

Selected by: Boston-based artists: Denise Driscoll (Fountain Street Fine Art) & Nathalie Miebach (Miller Yezerski Gallery)

Prospectus: Pattern and repetitive process go hand-in-hand. An entire practice may be made of similar gestures; each mark, movement or sound informing the next. Maps and systems are connected by similar shapes and textures; patterned artworks are created through a meditative, repeated process. Each individual cell, used repetitively—iterated—can be just as fascinating as the sum. Seeking work of all 2D, 3D and time-based media that employs pattern through an iterative process.

Eligibility: Open to all U.S. residents. Work must be created within the last 5 years and complete. Online submissions only. Open to work in all media. See prospectus for artwork size restrictions. Artists may apply with up to 6 works.

Exhibition dates: February 9 – March 11, 2017
