  • NewEnglandWax | HomeAway / HOME / AWAY -- NEW Work On Paper Swap
    New England Wax HOME/AWAY Work-on-paper Swap Participating NEW members will make wax-based work on 8” x 8” paper and receive a portfolio of original works by the participants in return. This would be a wonderful opportunity to own each other’s work, create work for an online exhibition, or, perhaps, a physical exhibition at an available venue, and as a promotional item for New England Wax. EDITION SIZE: *The edition size will be 20.* (The number of artists participating, plus one set to be used for an online exhibition, a physical exhibition, and/or NEW promotional material.) THEME: Home/Away   How do we define home—our family? our land? our country? our planet? What does it mean to us? Who is part of our home? What and where is “Away”? Does “Away” require less from us than “Home? Theme can be widely interpreted.  ARTIST STATEMENT: Each artist will provide, on a separate sheet, the title, medium, paper information, and a paragraph or two about the theme of Home/Away  COSTS: Each participating artist will contribute $25, due on the delivery date , *payable to new England Wax* , to cover the cost of glassine and a portfolio. DEADLINE FOR COMPLETED WORK: July 22, 2018  Bring completed works to the July 2018 NEW meeting. *This is a hard deadline* —have someone bring your work if you won’t be attending the July meeting. Work can be left with Deb Claffey or Soosen Dunholter at any time before July 22. We will distribute completed portfolios at September NEW meeting. MEDIUM: Wax must be at least one of the mediums used. Painting, collage, monotype, very low relief (portfolio suitable) and wax collagraph PAPER: The paper size is 8 x 8 inches only. Images can be full bleed, if desired or have a margin. Archival papers are required, but paper type can be selected by the artist. PRESENTATION: All editions will be interleaved with glassine and presented in a portfolio.
