CALL TO ARTISTS SculptFest22

This Deadline Expired: Friday, June 24, 2022

WEST RUTLAND, VT- The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center invites artists to submit proposals for SculptFest22, September 10 – October 23. The theme for this year’s outdoor exhibition is Games, guest curated by sculptor Evan Morse.

Games are usually a form of recreation, a means to play and enjoy oneself. They are often social activities, a way to make new friends and spend time with old ones. They can provoke competition, pitting individuals or teams against each other. Some games involve varying degrees of chance, real or metaphorical rolls of the dice, and some games are entirely skill-based, testing creative and mathematical thinking, such as chess. While some games are entirely mental, others are highly physical. The Olympic Games are an opportunity for athletes to prove themselves at the highest level, and those who are masters at any game can parlay those achievements to real world success.

But by definition, aren’t games somewhat trivial? Does prowess in a video game have benefits in the reality we live in? Is gambling a game? How about the stock market? How do some games act as a microcosm for larger society, for the chutes and ladders of our daily lives? If life is a game, who is making the rules, who plays by them and who cheats?

Artists are invited to use the grounds of the Carving Studio & Sculpture Center as their arena to respond to the theme of ‘games’ in any variety of concepts or approaches.

Influenced by folklore, superstition, divination, & forgotten territories reclaimed by nature, I create immersive installations out of hand-cut Tyvek—a nonwoven material most familiar as an insulating wrap used in the construction industry. These environments might be fairy-tale forests or the sites of biological disasters. Perhaps both.
