August 8th - October 11th, 2015 at the Mighty Tieton Warehouse
Opening reception: August 8th from 12 - 5pm
Gallery hours: Fri, Sat, Sun from 12 - 3pm
Jurors Sharon Arnold of Roq la Rue Gallery in Seattle and Jerry Beck of the Revolving Museum in Fitchburg, MA whittled down the 929 submissions to create a beautiful exhibition that celebrates all things small. “Jurying 10x10x10xTieton was such an honor, and a lot of fun”, said Arnold. “I appreciate smaller-scale artworks, as find there is an intimacy that draws you closer to them.” Beck agreed, adding “The art I saw was extremely eclectic. Much of it had merit, was full of technical virtuosity, craftsmanship, showed skill, emotion, conceptual thinking, and some made me laugh out loud.”
10x10x10xTieton features 155 works by 97 artists from around the world. With no media restrictions, the exhibition has a broad range of pieces on display, from sculpture to painting, book arts, photography and everything in between. All works are printed in a handbound exhibition catalog by Marquand Books and made in Tieton at Paper Hammer Studios. Every exhibited artist receives a free copy and additional copies are available for sale during the exhibition.
Visitors are encouraged to attend the opening reception at the Mighty Tieton Warehouse on Saturday, August 8th, 2015 from 12 - 5pm. Juror Jerry Beck will give a brief talk and hand out awards at 3pm. Those unable to make the reception can see the exhibition during regular gallery hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 - 3pm.
Awards generously donated by Doug and Laurie Kanyer.
