Some Things Looming Calls Artists to Express Food for Thought
Jun 29, 2013 02:52PM
Some Things Looming, in Reading, challenges artists to express conceptually, figuratively or literally the phrase, “food for thought,” in either a two or three-dimensional visual format that incorporates fiber or fiber techniques. Submissions are due by July 20 and the salon exhibit will run from September 13 through October 26.
Some Things Looming, a mother-daughter operation founded and directed by Rebekah Ritter and Melanie Ritter Mitchell, aims to create a thriving, viable community for the fiber arts and artists in Berks County and beyond. Housed in a multi-story, brick row home, Some Things Looming contains a gallery, boutique, studios, community spaces, classrooms, networking resources and a library. The facility offers gallery exhibits, studio and equipment rentals, instruction, workshops and more. Individual and group tours are available by appointment.
“The phrase, ‘food for thought,’ describes something that is stimulating and interesting to think about, perhaps even profound,” Ritter says of the exhibit, explaining that the phrase figuratively expresses that some problems or concepts feed the mind in the same way that food nourishes the body. Further details about receptions and activities during Food For Thought will be announced on the website.
