From Ireland, Silvana Bates submission to the Forest

“Into the Forest” is a mixed media international collaborative installation organized by artists Julie Eakes, Emily Squires Levine and Laura Tabakman.

A call has been made to polymer artists and enthusiasts from around the world to create pieces, which will form the installation’s life elements.  Our goal is that the flora and fauna that inhabit their part of the world will inspire contributors. From what we hope will be thousands of elements contributed by our vast global community, we look forward to creating the largest installation of its kind, generating a global coming together of the polymer clay community as a result. Deadline for submitting the work is May 2nd, 2017.

A preview of the installation will be on display at Synergy4, the International Polymer Clay Association’s conference to be held in suburban Philadelphia, PA in August 2017. The full installation will be held in Pittsburgh PA in November 2017, with an opening weekend event starting on November 10, 2017. The closing of the exhibition is December 3, 2017.
