Steeped: Call for Artists
108|Contemporary, in partnership with the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities at The University of Tulsa, is issuing a call for artists to submit works to be included in an upcoming exhibition, Steeped: The Art of Tea.
This exhibition aims to look at the past, present, and future of tea as well as the way this distinctive drink has shaped our sense of personal, ethnic, and global identity. Some of themes that this show aims to explore are memory, community, relationship building, reinforcement of social development, social status, culture, and ceremony. Eligibility: This exhibition is open to individuals 18 years and older. Media is limited to 2- and 3-dimensional contemporary fine craft arts, such as, but not limited to: glass, fiber, metal, ceramics, wood, and mixed media. Installation work is encouraged.

Each artist may submit up to three works and up to two images for each work. There is no submission fee.
