“Shifting Landscapes,” 3rd International SDA Member Juried Exhibition

Santa Fe, NM:  February 24 2017 – May 20, 2017

Shifting Landscapes will explore traditional, non-traditional, and contemporary interpretations of place by artists, designers, and makers working with or inspired by fiber or textile materials and techniques.

Landscape can be a place or an idea; it can be a mountain, a lake, a body, or a building; it can occupy a physical space as much as a psychological one. These landscapes shift under the forces of modern times. Challenges facing the world today are such that landscape is a portal through which to consider traditional notions of beauty and the sublime, but also as a framework to explore politics, architecture, identity, ecology and society.

The exhibition will be held in partnership with form & concept gallery at their location in Santa Fe, NM.

Deadline:  January 4, 2017
