The Crucible’s Cathedral Gallery is looking for artists to participate in their upcoming-juried group exhibit ‘Cast’. The sculpture technique of casting has been around since 6000 BC and is used with a vast array of materials. Historically casting has been traditionally associated as a manufacturing process for metal, but casting has also been widely used with glass, concrete, plaster and plastic resin. ‘Cast’ will highlight Bay Area artists' varied explorations in art utilizing the casting processes. The exhibit will be held March 18th through May 7th at the Crucible’s Cathedral Gallery located at 1603 Broadway in Downtown Oakland.
