2021 Open Call Shows
Wish You Were Here- January 16 to March 6, 2021
As we navigate this new world of isolation, do you let your mind wander to dream of times past or future? This show is a love letter to the life we once lived and the life we hope to live after the virus has been contained. Show us visions of places you hope to see, connections you miss, and feelings you can’t wait to chase again. Let your imagination travel beyond the present and into a future world you know is waiting for you, and all of us.

American Craft: A Piece of Yourself- May 8 to June 19, 2021
The core of the artwork speaks of it’s origin through the inherent expression of it’s maker. Working with traditional materials of wood, paper, glass, metal, textiles, ceramics, and items of a decorative nature, the act of crafting tends to serve a functional purpose. Stories told through this self taught art explores the act of giving “a piece of yourself”.
