#Call4Entry - Ganoksin's Fourth Annual International Online Jewelry Exhibition

Ganoksin is pleased to announce its 
Fourth Annual International Online Jewelry Exhibition.

This year's theme will be 
"Changing Hues: Color Embraced by Metalsmiths Around the World."

The exhibition is open to all metalsmiths, professional and amateur, 
advanced and beginner, around the world.

The exhibition is seeking works whose primary theme is color, whether that be using colored materials, exploring creating colored surfaces, or encasing the object in color. Works should be about COLOR - not color as an accent or focal point, but with color embraced as their primary visual focus. Works where color is not the primary visual element will be rejected.

As this is an online exhibition the work will only be seen via the photographs metalsmiths submit. It is therefore vital that these be in focus, on a neutral background (preferably not textured), and do an excellent job allowing the viewer to really see the piece and the workmanship involved. 

Any photographs not meeting exhibition standards will not be used, and the submitting metalsmith will be asked to re-submit the entry with a higher quality of photograph. Works will be juried by the curator and director.
