I am forwarding the mail below for your information. With such
sponsorship, it may be useful for potters and clay artists
everywhere... At least it is promoted as being international in
content as well as intent. Bass is a reputable company, but the usual
disclaimers from me!

Subject: Ceramics competition - entries sought.
I am writing to you with details of an exhibition and competition
that your site users may be interested in submitting their work to.
Redism.com has been sponsored by Bass Beers Worldwide as a way of
showcasing up-and-coming creative talent from the art and design
world. Theme number 10 is 'Ceramics' and the guest editor is Jill
This is the way that the competition works:
Each month, entries on a particular theme are submitted and the
relevant guest editor chooses the 10 best works to be rated and
discussed by the site users. Each month, the most highly rated piece
of work is featured on the site as the themes winner.
The best entries overall are then exhibited in Bass' bar galleries
(world-wide), with previews for leading members of the art community
in each country.
The debut exhibition of winning work was held at The Man In The Moon
in Stockholm, Sweden for the week of 12th November. It was a
resounding success with exhibits from all around the world being
shown. There was considerable media interest in the show and guests
included many names in the Swedish art world. Some of those attending
included Sven-Olov Wallenstein (editor of 'Site' magazine and
lecturer at Valand Art Academy and Konstfack), Eva Broberg
(producer/curator at the experimental soundart stage and studio,
Fylkingen) Ben Loveless (director of the Zinc Gallery, Stockholm),
Mats Brodén (director of the Art Node/Time Institute) and Staffan
Bengtsson (editor for the cultural weekly 'Kobra' and producer of the
50's and 60's nostalgic documentary series 'K-markt', both on Swedish
The Redism site has a new guest editor every month, all of whom are
experts with well-respected opinions in their particular fields and
have been chosen to make a balanced and informed judgement across the
board. For example, guest editors include Fiona Bradley a senior
curator for the Hayward Gallery (London) for the last three years,
and Rob Gallagher the celebrity portrait photographer (examples of
his work can be found in the archives of The National Portrait
Gallery in London, and also within the world renowned Hutton-Getty
The site also acts as a permanent on-line exhibition with
contributors from all over the world; previous exhibits are archived
and can be accessed when they are no longer being featured.
If you are able to tell your site users in any way about this
opportunity to show their work then that would be really great! If
you have any further questions regarding the site then please do not
hesitate to contact me.

The closing date for ceramics submissions is 16th May 2002.
