My Kissing Rings shown at the Tieton Arts and Humanities 10 x 10 x 10 exhibition in Washington state

The 9th annual 10x10x10xTieton juried exhibition invites artists from all over the world to create work no larger than 10 inches in any dimension, no media restrictions. The result? A wide-ranging exhibition that includes sculpture, painting, photography, book art, 3D printed objects, found objects, collage, jewelry, and everything in between.

Jurors Sean Elwood, former Director of Programs & Initiatives at the Creative Capital Foundation in New York, and Monica Miller, Executive Director of Gallery One Visual Arts Center in Ellensburg, looked at 914 total submissions. Paring down to just 167 pieces for the show was not an easy process for the jurors, “as there were inevitably some very good things not included,” says Sean. “It’s a subjective process. But despite the challenges, picking a show like this can be extremely rewarding. I looked for artworks that were well realized, that embodied beauty and/or intelligence, that were distinctly of this time or embodied a sense of timelessness.”
