Celebration: Ten Years

Each year, Galerie Beaux-Arts des Amériques puts out a limited call for entry on a specific theme, and this year the subject is "Celebration", as the gallery marks its tenth year. Entries focusing on the number 10 are also encouraged.

Ten, acrylic collage on watercolour paper,
mounted on wooden panel, 20 x 20

For the last two years I've happily had my submissions (in fibre) accepted and sold. This year I'm taking a chance by entering an acrylic collage, an extension of my "Touchstone" series.

Ten (detail). Notice the pattern created by repeating the numeral 10.

Entrants are required to mount their work on a 20" x 20" wooden panel. This gives the exhibition a nice consistency when the works are displayed. The gallery not only offers a well-lit, white-walled exhibition space in a trendy downtown neighbourhood, but produces a high-quality printed catalog of the show and features images of all the accepted works on their website.

My artist statement for the work reads:
More information about the show to follow.  Whether or not my piece is juried in. (sigh)
