The Pittsburgh Glass Center (PGC)invites BIPOC craftspeople to apply for Full Spectrum, an exhibition brought to you by Crafting the Future, ORIGINS, and The Color Network. This exhibition will celebrate the diverse voices in the field and the myriad of approaches to a fully realized practice and career. We invite you to apply whether you identify as a maker, artist, designer, craftsperson, or anywhere in between.
“Full Spectrum: Visionaries Elevating Art, Craft, and Design” will take place at Pittsburgh Glass Center Feb. 4 –May 23, 2022. People from all craft media are invited to apply. The goal is to showcase visionary makers of color from around the country who are producing extraordinary craft objects, while illustrating the vast number of pathways to a successful and meaningful career.
The exhibition will be hosted by Pittsburgh Glass Center in their 1,700 sq ft Hodge Gallery. Sales of artwork/objects from the exhibition will be encouraged with 70% going directly to the artist. In the interest of making the opportunity equitable, shipping for the exhibition will be covered both to the gallery and back to the artist at the end of the exhibition up to $250 per artist each way.
The exhibition will be juried by Corey Pemberton, an interdisciplinary artist and co-founder of Crafting The Future; April Felipe, an artist working in ceramics and mixed media and co-founder of The Color Network; and Nisha Blackwell, an artist working in fiber and founder of Knotzland as well as a program consultant and business coach for the ORIGINS program at the Creative Business Accelerator.
