David Franis - 2D / 3D Art Juror
Shoreline Arts Festival

David Francis works primarily an independent artist-curator with a practice informed by poetry, science, and critical theory. Following MFA and PhD degrees from University of Washington, he taught in Poland and Hungary as a two-time Fulbright scholar before joining the Humanities and Sciences department at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle from 1999 – 2006.

From 2006 – 2010, he taught in the Diverse Disciplines program at Pratt Fine Arts Center. At the same time, he joined Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) as a curator, launching CoCA’s publications series and eventually writing over 15 catalog essays while creating collaborations with Seattle Parks and Recreation and King County Parks for a series of experimental exhibitions in public urban forests.

He currently serves as guest curator at Museum of Glass, Tacoma, and as Public Art Coordinator for the City of Shoreline.

The Juried Art / Photography Exhibit is one of the highlights of the Shoreline Arts Festival, featuring over 300 artworks from regional artists in 2D, 3D, and Photography. The Festival is scheduled for June 27-28, 2015.

The Arts Council awards over $2000 in cash prizes and merchandise prizes. Winners are announced at 11:30am on Saturday in the Shoreline Room. Each year, the Arts Council has also purchased work for their Portable Works Collection, which has grown to over 50 pieces, and they are shown at many public buildings in the community.

Visit the Arts Council website for a full prospectus and online registration form. The Deadline for online registration is June 15.
