2024 JURORS: Kelly and Kyle Phelps
This year’s jurors are identical twin brothers Kelly and Kyle Phelps. Kelly Phelps is a Professor at Xavier University (Cincinnati) and Kyle is a Professor at University Dayton (Dayton) where they head the sculpture and ceramic departments. Much of the twins’ ceramics based work is about the blue collar working-class, race relations, and the everyday struggles of the common man and woman. The twins continue to work collaboratively to create their artwork and share a studio in Centerville (OH). They share numerous grants, regional, national, and international exhibitions, and commissions. Their work is also included in many permanent museum collections across the United States. Most notable private collectors of the twin’s work are in the hands of film director Michael Moore, and actor Morgan Freeman as well as major reviews in Ceramics Monthly, Sculpture Magazine, and American Craft Magazine.

Every precaution is taken in handling exhibiting artwork. All work is insured during the installation process and while the work is on display. The Gallery Coordinator reserves the right to reject work if it differs from the work presented in the original application, violates any conditions set forth in this prospectus, or is unsafe to display for any reason. Artists who are shipping their work are responsible for shipping charges both ways. Return shipping must be pre-paid with a pre-paid label through UPS or FedEx. If no such arrangements are made, the artwork will not be returned. All wall pieces must include proper hanging materials or instructions. Participating artists must agree to be bound by the Gallery Group Exhibition Agreement.

Submission of an entry to the HWD regional sculpture competition constitutes an agreement on the part of the entrant to all the conditions set forth in this prospectus. Rosewood Arts Center reserves the right to reproduce images of accepted entries for publicity purposes.
