Welcome Artists

  1. Art in the Park: located in George Rogers Park, is an outdoor booth show open to artists who produce original, hand-made, fine art and crafts, and we welcome makers working in long standing traditions, artists on the cutting edge, and newly emerging artists. We have expanded the categories of accepted artisans this year to include fine instrument makers, leather workers, and Zine artists.
  2. Artist's Vision: Landscapes of the ImaginationAn exhibit focusing on scenes from one’s imagination. What have you invented in the spaces of your mind? From winged manatees, ferns from mars, landscapes without gravity: we seek to display the improbable.

The Open Show is a non-juried exhibit displaying work from emerging and established artists, and is one of the largest of its kind on the West Coast.  Each year, judges select from a wide array of mediums and aesthetics, awarding a limited amount of locally sponsored cash and non-cash prizes. Note: Online application will be available June 1-13, 2019.
  4. Special Exhibit 2019 Origin Stories: Comics and Identity. An exhibit celebrating the unique formal qualities of comics as a medium, as well as the infinite possibilities of expression the form allows. Curator Andréa Gilroy and Assistant Curator Katie Proctor seek to embrace the here-and-now of comics art, and to celebrate the work of known professionals alongside fresh, exciting talent.
