Interplay: The Annual Members Juried Virtual Show

Online at Collage Artists of America
1 April-31 May 2024

Deadline: Thursday, 29 February 2024 at 11:55PM PST

Collage Artists of America (CAA) is accepting submissions for “Interplay”, the annual members virtual juried show, taking place in April and May 2024. CAA writes:

Just like in life, the interaction or INTERPLAY of disparate elements in art can be unexpected and surprising. Whether the elements come together in a harmonious visual dialogue or create artistic dissonance with unusual juxtapositions, the new energies create a dynamic whole that is unique and greater than any individual elements alone. Your interpretation of INTERPLAY could be how you manipulate materials, use existing or new techniques or use specific design elements. Perhaps you compare or contrast similar or diverse historical and cultural sources. The options for variation can be endlessly fun to experiment with, either abstractly or with any degree of representation.

Juror Nancy Kay Turner is a visual artist, art critic and founder of the art collective Hana Kark. Bronx born, she fled New York for the sun and fun of California and has never looked back. A graduate of Queens College, The University of California at Berkeley and The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, she studied painting with Elmer Bischoff, Peter Saul and R.B. Kitaj. Turner has written critical reviews for ARTWEEK, ARTSCENE, Visions Magazine, Coagula Curatorial, Riot Material, Art and Cake, and Cultural Weekly. Her mixed-media work has been in local, national, international and traveling exhibits.

There are cash awards totaling $1000. These awards will be given to artists in first ($400), second ($300), and third ($200). One artist will receive the Carolann Watterson Award ($100) and there will be four Honorary Mentions.
