Call Description:
Beyond canvas, aluminum, linen, or wood, paper has a special resonance for everyone. It is what we used in school to create cards for our parents, or to create a masterpiece at age 7 when we were all artists.
Now as professionals, paper offers a thousand possibilities. We can sketch, draw and paint, collage, sculpt, create books, wall hangings, and photographs or allow the paper to be the art. In this challenge we invite the artists to engage in a conversation with paper in whatever way they imagine. The paper is the thing!

Open Call for Art: Feel the FRILL –

The Ginsburg Gauntlet Exhibition

Sculpture To Wear Gallery has a 21-year history of curating and hosting poignant, cutting-edge exhibitions by award-winning International artists. In keeping with this tradition, we are seeking edge dwellers, truth seekers and history makers for an exhibition honoring Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who “changed minds and made change happen”. The primarily on-line exhibition will feature wearable art collars similar to those worn by the Nortorious RBG to challenge, “throw down the gauntlet”, evoke opinion, dissent, or non-verbal expression ushering a distinct message, often against the establishment.

The show will be curated by Lisa M. Berman of Sculpture To Wear Gallery and additionally, judged by Human Rights Activist Jayne Herring and Berta Montoya – CFO of U.S. Lifestyle Group.
