Deck The Halls and Off the Walls

Event details

Get in the holiday spirit with our December exhibitions!

Call for Artists: Deck The Halls

Deck the Halls is an alternative holiday exhibition which encourages appreciation for all holidays of the season! Artists are asked to create works of art and installation proposals that utilize holiday decorations in unique ways, re-use, repurpose, or re-imagine the use of traditional decorations and envision an immersive installation experience to celebrate the season. Artwork that utilizes alternative media is encouraged as well as installation and video based works. The curation of this exhibition will feature colored gallery lighting, decorative lights, and other typical decorations that “deck the halls” of the gallery in innovative ways!

Awards include $250 Best In Show, $125 for 2nd place and $75 for 3rd place. Entries will be juried by multimedia artist and curator Scott Snyder. Working in a variety of media, Snyder assembles his visual commentaries on contemporary consumer culture with a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the nature of the commercial art market, its volatile desires and trends.

Call for Alliance Member Artists: Small Works Off the Wall

For this year’s Small Works: Off the Walls Exhibition, member artists are asked to submit works valued under $200 in any medium or theme. Just as in past years, all sales are “cash and carry,” meaning purchasers will get to take the piece with them when they buy it, instead of waiting until the end of the exhibit. This year, Small Works: Off the Walls will be paired with Deck the Halls Juried Exhibition for twice the fun! Artworks will be displayed salon style from floor to ceiling in the theatre lobby.
