Huntington Arts Council : Call to artists, Objects Found, Early Deadline Dec. 21.2018

Siddhartha Relic by Tara Leale Porter


The "Objects Found" exhibition will feature artwork that incorporates salvaged materials. During the creative process, consider still lifes, Joseph Cornell's ephemera-filled boxes, Tim Noble's and Sue Webster's discarded item assemblages, Jim Golden's object photography, Jane Perkins' 3D-collage portraits, etc. Use items you've found or collected-from twigs, buttons, and antiques to toys, textiles, etc.-to complete your work. 
Juror Tara Leale Porter of Red Lotus Fused Glass Art creates a narrative in her artwork through a dialogue of materials. She interweaves her fused glass with found objects that have a time-worn patina to construct stories of destruction and regeneration. Leale Porter has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute and a Master of Arts in Art Therapy via Hofstra University.
