2015 Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition
Opens for Entries with June 15 Artist Deadline
The Center for Metal Arts is now calling for entries to the fourth annual world-wide Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition, open to metal artists using foldforming techniques in jewelry, sculpture, functional objects, and unexpected applications.
PRLog - March 19, 2015 - FLORIDA, N.Y. -- Each year the Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition invites metal artists everywhere to submit their work in a global competition designed to survey the evolution of foldforming techniques. This annual event challenges makers to share their best work, and reveals surprising new applications of the technique pioneered by renowned artist-goldsmith and educator Charles Lewton-Brain in the 1980’s.
Hosted by the Center for Metal Arts, the 2015 Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition is now open for entries with a submission deadline of June 15th, 2015. Previous results including press coverage and videos of winners and Jurors’ Choice selections can be found at www.centerformetalarts.com/foldform-competition.html. On the same page, artists will find a link to read the Call for Entries and enter the competition.
Three highly respected figures in the metal arts community are tasked with selecting the winners and Jurors' Choice entries for the 2015 competition. Dr. Hanuman Aspler, Owner / Co-Founder of The Ganoksin Project, will join the jury this year along-side Hazel Wheaton, Editor of Art Jewelry magazine, and Charles Lewton-Brain, Foldforming Pioneer. Judges will be looking for a well-crafted use of foldforming techniques in the metal arts in a fully realized work, with points for design, excellence of execution and bold explorations. Because evaluation is based on images, high quality photography is also required.
Winning entries will be awarded prizes including Rio Grande gift certificates (1st Place $300, 2nd Place $200, 3rd Place $100, Honorable Mention $50), a one-year subscription to Art Jewelry magazine, and a small foldformed object crafted by foldforming pioneer Charles Lewton-Brain. An Innovation Award is also available at jury discretion. By tradition, a variable number of additional entries are recognized in a Jurors’ Choice round.
