My taste buds are aging well.  I can still tell the difference between Parmesan, Romano and Asiago cheeses–even in bad grocery-store-powdered form.  And, I have fallen newly in love with beets.  My art is getting better too.  Who knew?  Well, the Haggus Society knew; that’s who.  This next Call want to prove that we all get better with age.  This is a great opportunity!

Last year, 2011, the Haggus Society presented the 1st annual Edges & Curves, Nothing In Between exhibition which successfully challenged the myth that older artists have little to no edge.

ENTRY FEE:  $12.50 for up to 6 images for non-members.  Submission fees are waived for Haggus Society members in good standing.

JUROR:  Natalie Abrams’ work examines suspending moments in time; the physical and textural experience of those moments, the delicate beauty of our surroundings and the difficulty of preserving the present.  An environmentalist, Abrams’ abstract landscapes were first exhibited at the R&F Gallery in the three person show “Not Seeing the Forest”.

Learn more about Fractured Atlas!Using a technique as fluid and unpredictable as nature itself, led to the development of her highly sculptural ribbon paintings; pieces which blur the line between painting and sculpture. The ribbon works have been exhibited in national exhibitions including the Third Annual Encaustic Invitational, as a highlighted artist at Ball State University with Encaustic Works 07, as well as the 2010 book “Encaustic & Beyond”.

Abrams’ latest work further explores humanity’s relationship to our surroundings in the form of sculptural landscapes and topography, and the mirrored societal relationships therein. Development of this work into freestanding installation works will be the focus of her upcoming Affiliate Artist Residency with the McColl Center.

SALES:  The Haggus Society receives a 40% commission from all art sold. Please include this in your pricing. If a work is not for sale please indicate with NFS.
