Juror: John Coole is a sculptor from Chatham, NY. He has displayed his work in numerous juried shows in the Hudson Valley, Massachusetts and Michigan. He was educated at Syracuse University (BA & MA) and has a Phd from the Universitiy of Massachusetts at Amherst. He is currently Professor Emeritus of English and Environmental Studies at Western Michigan University. Cooley says: “ I am attracted to three-dimensional art and typically work with wood or other natural materials. I am drawn to the edges of roads and fields, to dilapidated barns and abandoned factories, rich patinas formed by layers of paint or varnish and to the ways in which time alters surfaces with weathering, fading and blending of colors.”

  • Works submitted must not have been exhibited in previous juried shows at CCCA.
  • Up to 3 works may be submitted in .jpg format, the largest dimension being a maximum of 1024 pixels. Artist may submit multiple view jpgs of freestanding works, but be sure to CLEARLY label jpgs as being in a "set" (i.e. title.1of3.jpg, title.2of3.jpg...etc.)
