Cocoon Gallery Call for Artists

Cocoon Gallery is pleased to present Jewelry Box 2018, a Juried 3D Exhibition.

We seek to entice artists of all 3D mediums to investigate and explore the potential of the jewelry box. What is a box? What makes a jewelry box different from any other box? Does a jewelry box have to have corners, hold many pieces or only one piece, have to be functional? What materials can be used to house jewelry? Is the box the jewel? Is the jewel a box? What makes your jewelry box special -the materials, the design, the craftsmanship?

Juror: Edie Carpenter of Green Hill
Juror Awards:
Best in Show $400
2nd Place $200
3rd Place $100

Juror Bio: GreenHill Director of Curatorial and Artistic programs Edie Carpenter has an art background deeply grounded in North Carolina art combined with far-reaching, international art experience.
