Call for Artists: 2019 Exhibits

Share your work with the Placitas community. The following exhibits are open to all artists 18 and older.

August: Dog Days

Submissions begin – May 1, 2019

The relationship between dogs and humans dates back tens of thousands of years. Hanging out with our canine friends, it turns out, has been and continues to be beneficial to both. Artists should take advantage of this exhibition to exhibit their knowledge of dog lore, to express love for a particular breed, to acknowledge a favorite dog, or perhaps to remember that scary creature once encountered (in real time or in the imagination) that made them run away. Responses in any medium are welcome.

Coordinators: Rebecca Cohen and Margaret Bruch

September: Placitas Garden Tour

Coordinators: Geri Verble and Sue Ortiz

October: Student Art

A display of student art from Placitas Elementary, grades K-5.

Coordinator: Linda Hughes

November: Here Comes the Sun

Submissions begin – August 1, 2019

This is a natural! We live in New Mexico where the Zia or sun symbol appears on our flag. As the sun affords us less heat at this time of the year, but just as much sunshine, artists are encouraged to look at the sun (but not directly!) and provide their own unique take on this ubiquitous symbol.

Coordinator: Rebecca Cohen

December: A World of Wearable Art

Submissions begin – September 1, 2019

Wearable art refers to individually designed pieces of handmade clothing or jewelry created as an expressive art. The term “wearable art” implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique creation or statement.

This art exhibit is seeking artists who wish to exhibit their “art” on wearable material. Art included can be silk scarves, jewelry, jackets, dresses, hats, and much more.  Clothing from around the world made by local artisans will also be accepted.  Work submitted may be used in a fashion show the night of the reception. 

Coordinators: Geri Verble and Sue Ortiz
