Craft in Contemporary Art Call for Entries

Craft in Contemporary Art Call for Entries

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, February 9, 2020

The marriage of craft and art-making is one of humanity’s earliest moments. From the Neolithic period onwards, textiles, metals, glass, stone, and other materials were laboriously and carefully woven into images and figures, marking the intersecting and complex paths of commerce, religious and domestic life, and the arts. The Industrial Revolution begin the mass manufacture of textiles, making them available to ever larger swaths of society. These materials and methods have been increasingly integrated into the fine arts, creating a flourishing and exciting conjunction. What is the place, and future of craft in contemporary art? Site:Brooklyn is looking to answer this question, with works that range across all styles and mediums.

My life and my perceptions are the subjective drivers for the pictures I make. Making a painting is, for me, an exploratory process toward understanding, not an expository declaration of a position already held.

Jenn is a painter! Mostly she's an oil painter, though she's been known to use just about any medium available at a given moment.

She Loves to paint. It's pretty much all she wants to do.
Shes Loves to paint the world and the beautiful things in it — 
and she Loves that people really Love her paintings of our beautiful world and the beautiful things in it!

There is nothing really special about Jenn, she's just painter who paints... just about anything, just about all the time. 

P.S. She's a bit of a formalist — her world is made up of line, color, shape, form, structure, composition and plasticity. And, while she paint from observation, the subject of the painting is not her objective. The process of painting is her objective — the process of how to best use the medium, often oil paint, to create and subjugate form on the two dimensional surface of the canvas.
