THE LARSON GALLERY The Larson Gallery is located on the campus of Yakima Valley Community College. Yakima is in the heart of Washington's Wine Country– the same latitude as the great wine-producing regions of France, with magnificent vineyards and 60 wineries in the Yakima Valley appellation. The Larson Gallery was established in 1949 as one of the original buildings on the campus of the then-named Yakima Valley Junior College. The Larson Gallery remains the largest and oldest continually operating non-commercial gallery in Central Washington. Its existence is a partnership between the Larson Gallery, the Larson Gallery Guild a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and Yakima Valley Community College THE EXHIBITION In this national juried exhibition, functional art refers to aesthetic objects that serve a utilitarian purpose—how the artist expresses him/herself in items such as clothing, textiles, jewelry, tableware, tools, fixtures and furniture. The idea of 'The Wine Country Home’ is meant as a broad organizational theme; submissions need not reflect the wine country specifically. ELIGIBILITY Open to all artists residing in the United States. Only original artwork executed by the artist within the last two years and not previously shown in a Larson Gallery exhibit will be considered. MEDIA Acrylic, ceramic, fiber, glass, metal, mixed media, non-traditional materials, oil, photography, print, and wood. Other types of media considered with preapproval from the Larson Gallery. SUBMISSIONS All entries must be submitted via the CaFE system, mail-in entries will not be considered. Images must conform to the CaFE formatting standards, instructions can be found in the CaFE help section. SETS Artworks of multiple units are considered as one artwork only when priced, labeled and photographed as one piece.
