A national callout to every artist, maker or creator in the land to join together/ collaborate to create Pluid – a national comfort blanket by submitting a single 15cm X 15cm original art work in any medium.
The individual art works will be curated and assembled like crocheted granny squares of old and then exhibited at a venue (to be confirmed) when restrictions allow in Midsummer, June 2021.
We hope that the call-out in its simplicity and the limited scale of artworks will encourage artists, makers and creatives in every medium and discipline to respond, participate and collaborate.
Since our initial call out in February we have been overwhelmed by the response and enthusiasm from artists and creatives to the Pluid Project. Thanks to all the artists who have already submitted artworks. We want to continue to grow the national comfort blanket so this is a renewed call to artists to participate and submit work by 1st May 2021.
Following the exhibition of Pluid, artists will be invited to donate their works to be auctioned for Pieta House. Alternatively arrangements can be made for the works to be returned/collected.
