Exhibition Description

The art of printmaking has had a huge impact on history around the world. It was one of the first ways to mass produce and share information around the world. It gave us access to more news, books, textiles, and, of course, art!  Printmaking dates back over five thousand years and since its start people have developed all kinds of ways to do it. Some are very easy and some much harder but the basic concept of transferring an image from one surface to another remains the same. It’s used for everything from greeting cards to money. With printmaking, the possibilities are endless. For this Tamarack Youth Art Exhibition we want to see you use the power of printmaking to create original art! 

Tamarack Youth Arts Gallery is seeking original artwork from West Virginia students, grades K-12 that uses at least one printmaking technique.  All work must be ready to hang.

The Youth Art Month Exhibition will feature works from four grade categories (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12). Selected artwork will be chosen by jurors currently enrolled in West Virginia Colleges and Universities. The jurors will also select a first, second, and third place winner from each grade category. The top three winners of each grade category will receive a cash prize $100 for first, $75 for second and $50 for third.

Overview
 

The flora and fauna of a place are, simply put, it’s plants and animals, or even more simply put: it’s critters and hollers! Both are very important part of our ecosystem and environment and both are themes that have been celebrated in art for centuries. The wildlife of a region can tell its outsiders so much about not only the physical landscape but of the people that live there. As West Virginians it is easy for us to take our local plants and animals for granted but Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is inviting you to celebrate the wild and wonderful plants and animals that reside in our never-ending mountains. From our beautiful rhododendrons to the prehistoric hellbender salamander that resides in our cold, clear, creeks and streams, we can’t wait to see your interpretation of the abundant critters and hollers of Appalachia. 

Tamarack's David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is seeking both representational and non-representational original two and three dimensional works that bring flora and fauna to the forefront and celebrate the beauty of the plants and animals in West Virginia.   
This exhibition is only open to Tamarack juried artists. For more information about how to become a Tamarack artist, visit this link.

Overview

Although Jeff Koons, the King of Kitsch himself, prefers the term banal, “kitsch” has made its home in the art world the same way that pop art has. We hear people make mention of what is and isn’t art all the time but it’s rare that we ever hear “why isn’t it art?” This exhibition is all about looking at art, not through the critical eye of an artist but through the eyes of a viewer who embraces the oddity, humor, and “banal” of kitsch and the irony that surrounds it. After all, good jokes incorporate irony and, as Elizabeth Taylor once said “If you can’t laugh at yourself, you’re cooked!”

Tamarack's David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is seeking original two and three-dimensional works that bring kitsch to the forefront and celebrate the beauty of the “banal”.

This exhibition is only open to Tamarack juried artists. For more information about how to become a Tamarack artist, visit this link.

Overview

 

Repetition is a part of our daily lives, whether it is our morning routine or the way we make art, repetition and pattern is constantly surrounding and influencing us. When looking back our heroes of contemporary art we can see how artists are always using a variation of repetition, pattern, and rhythm to make their work more dynamic and give it a sense of movement. 

Motif is looking for 2D and 3D submissions of work that you feel consists of some sort of repetition, pattern, rythm or motif. The term repetition can be taken literally in the sense of a visual pattern of shape, color, line, etc. Or more loosely in the way that something is made through a pattern of physical repetition- for example: the way a weaver, potter, or printmaker would exemplify repetition by using the same pattern of motion and movement to create their brilliant artworks. Have fun with the way the patterns in your life can be perceived.

Overview
 

Like art, identity is perception; perception of self, of others, and how the elements in our life continue to develop that perception and identity over time. We define ourselves with every choice we make, every action we take, and every work we create. This exhibition gives the artist the chance to express, explore and question their own ideas about identity and reveal their own perceptions of themselves and the world around them. 

Tamarack's David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is seeking original two and three-dimensional work, of any subject and media that represents the artist's own expression and ideas about their identity.

This exhibition is only open to Tamarack juried artists. For more information about how to become a Tamarack artist, visit this link.
