Portland Art Gallery seeks ceramic artist entries. Deadline for the May show is March 8th.

Eutectic Gallery of Portland, Oregon proudly announces an open call to artists in the ceramic medium.
Eu・ tec・tic – [yoo-tek-tik] adj.: The proportion of constituents in a mixture that yields the lowest possible complete melting point; often lower than the melting points of the constituents on their own.

Similar to the relationship between the components that make up clay and their proportions, Eutectic Gallery wishes to explore the relationship between an artist’s process, product, & concept, and the public’s interpretation of, interaction with, and critique of said work.

Eutectic is seeking submissions that interpret and exemplify the Eutectic concept throughout a body on work, or between two artists and two bodies of work.

The cost of submission for a single artist is $25 and $35 for a pair and may include up to 5 images.  Additional images can be submitted for $5 each.

Deadlines, to be considered for a specific month, submissions must be made by the following dates:

April-  deadline is February 8th
May- deadline is March 8th 
June- deadline is April 12th
July- deadline is May 10th

All submission fees are non refundable.  Submissions can be sent via US Postal Service, Fed Ex or UPS to the address below. Compact Discs, DVDs, flash drives or 8″x10″ prints can be sent with proper documentation along with a cheque for the correct amount addressed to:
