Share Article

Drift Studio has issued an open call for entries for "Renewal," a painting exhibition using recycled plywood furniture panels.

Drift Studio Panels

Drift Studio 15x15” Baltic Birch Plywood Panel

Because we are reclaiming this material, we encourage your artwork and process to be inspired by the idea of “Renewal” and what that means to you.

Drift Studio - a modular furniture design company - has accumulated an overwhelming amount of prototype, and overstock plywood panels that cannot be used to build final products and would like them to take on a new life. Participants will receive one Baltic Birch plywood panel (15x15”) per entry to work with as their canvas. All panels will have holes drilled in all four corners to accommodate decorative bolts that secure a picture wire on the back, and all will have a mitered edge on all sides. The panels will be pulled from the overstock pile at random and may have minor scratches, dents or dings. Because Drift Studio is reclaiming this material, participants are encourages to find inspiration from the idea of “Renewal.”

How to Enter:
Register for the show through the Drift Studio Facebook page: facebook.com/driftstudio or visit driftstudio.com/renewal-2013/ before February 9, 2013.

Best in Show award $300
Two honorable mention award winners will receive $100 each. Winners will be chosen by our guest juror: Fred Stonehouse, Assistant Professor of Art, University of Wisconsin- Madison, Nationally recognized Wisconsin artist, fredstonehouseart.com
