carnival of curiosities
Deadline for submission: July 24, 2019
Exhibition Dates: August 9 - August 31, 2019
Come one come all! We are seeking artists from across the land who have a penchant for the odd, the eccentric and who produce works that portray the wonder and allure of the circus spectacle. We are looking for vibrant color, vintage vibes and curious characters. All mediums will be considered, including, but not limited to painting, photography, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, fiber, and sculpture.
Deadline for submission: August 21, 2019
Exhibition Dates: September 13 - September 28, 2019
What do you do with your fibers, yarns or fabric? The Crossing Arts Alliance seeks to exhibit the best of contemporary fiber art. We invite submissions that reflect a wide range or works related to the fiber medium such as fabric, yarns, paper, basketry, etc.
Call for Visiting Artists
As part of our ongoing Second Saturday programming, TCAA invites visiting artists to participate in a 1-day trunk show, demonstration, or workshop. We've hosted journal-makers, painters, photographers, sculptors, culinary artists, and more, and have enjoyed their mini-exhibits, art sales, and classes. We delight in introducing our members to new artists and art forms, and our visiting artists enjoy the opportunity as well. If you are an artist or fine crafter who would like to get to know the Crossing Arts community, contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Call for Writers and Poets
The Crossing Arts Alliance is looking for writers and poets who would like to have their work shared in our newsletter, The Crossing Currents. We are looking to include a variety of literary styles, including short works of poetry and prose as well as selections from larger works such as novels (250-500 words). The Crossing Currents is published quarterly and is distributed to over 650 readers, and we would like to take advantage of this opportunity to feature our literary community and share their work with our broader readership. There is no submission deadline as this opportunity is ongoing. If you are a writer and interested in having your work featured in The Currents, please contact us at email@example.com
Each November and December our Gift Shop and Gallery are filled to the brim with one-of-a-kind art and fine craft suitable for gift-giving. We call this Kringle Market. The months of November and December are our busiest in terms of sales and artists are encouraged to keep their stock levels monitored. We find that items under $50 are our biggest sellers. If your work fits the bill, contact us about how to be included.
