Theme: Telling Tales

Dead­line: January 62023

Esherick’s artis­tic prac­tice is grounded in story­telling. His early, block-printed illus­tra­tions helped tell the stories of other writers, while later prints, paint­ings, and sculp­tures told stories of Esherick’s life in the Studio and his commu­ni­ties – some funny, some sad, some remark­able, all true. For WEM’s 29th Annual Juried Wood­work­ing Exhi­bi­tion, we invite you to share an artwork that centers a story that matters to you and incor­po­rates wood in some way. In a nod to the multi­fac­eted modes through which we know Esherick’s story – Personal narra­tive, archival mate­ri­als, oral histo­ries, contin­ued research, and WEM’s commu­nity – we look forward to seeing entries that range from picto­r­ial to abstract and which may draw from differ­ent story­telling modal­i­ties, includ­ing visual, written, and aural. Whether your story’s roots are personal, famil­ial, cultural, or histor­i­cal, well-known or little heard, we hope that you will share your creative voice and vision with us!
