  • NewEnglandWax | 2020Project-Memory / Memory Swap/Exhibition Project 2020
    This subgroup is for the Memory Swap & Exhibition participants, to share information that the Main Group doesn't need. DETAILS: *MEMORY PROJECT* The Project Committee has proposed a second “Work on Paper Swap,” similar to our last exchange. At the March meeting, the members agreed to repeat the project. Here are the details. Participating NEW members would make wax-based work on 8” x 8 ” paper and receive a portfolio of original works by the participants in return. This will be a wonderful opportunity to own each other’s work, create work for an online exhibition and a physical exhibition (possible International) at an available venue, and as a promotional item for New England Wax. *THEME:* Memory: “ Memory is the treasury and guardian of all things.” Cicero *T* he faculty of the brain by which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved when needed. *Memory* is vital to experiences, it is the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action. There are different types of memory. Short-term memory stores information for a few seconds or minutes. Long-term memory stores it for a longer period of time. This information takes many different forms, e.g. images, sounds or meaning. 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 how you interpreted  the theme of *MEMORY* in your work. *COSTS:* Each participating artist will contribute *$25, due on or before the delivery date* , to cover the cost of glassine and a portfolio. Heather Douglas will be collecting $$ Please make checks payable to : New England Wax *DEADLINE FOR* *Sign up:* *June 1, 2019*. We will announce the total number of works to be produced by each participant. It could be 30 or more, so, take this into consideration before committing to the project. *DEADLINE FOR COMPLETED WORK:* *March, 2020** Bring completed works to the March NEW meeting. *This is a hard deadline* —have someone bring your work if you won’t be attending the meeting. Work can be left with anyone from the Project committee at any time before the March deadline. We will distribute completed portfolios at  the May 2020 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. * Additionally each artist will also produce one 12 x 12 piece with the same MEMORY theme *PRESENTATION:* All editions will be interleaved with glassine and presented in a portfolio similar to last time. *EDITION SIZE:* The edition size will be determined by the number of artists participating, plus one 12 x 12 set to be used for an online exhibition, a physical exhibition, and/or NEW promotional material.
