Luminous Landscapes in Ceramic & Encaustic Paintings – Exhibition

Opening this Thursday! “Woman as____”

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 2.56.33 PM

“Woman As___” runs from December 4th 2014 through January 18th 2015.

TacoCat Cooperative Studios and Gallery.
937 Burrell Avenue Columbus OH 43212.

Special performance by artist Heidi Madsen between 6:20 and 6:45pm.

The exhibit is curated by member artists Catherine Bell Smith and Mollie Hannon.

The Creative Arts of Women (CAW) and the Women’s Fund of Central Ohio have teamed up to present “Woman As__” a provocative new exhibit that explores gender, identity and womanhood. The exhibit will feature over 100 original works by members of the artist collective CAW representing diverse mediums such as painting, installation and performance. The centerpiece of the exhibit will feature a collaborative mosaic created by member artists that addresses theme of “Woman As____.”

CAW and the Women’s Fund are compatible organizations with the same goal of empowering women. CAW is a group of professional artists representing a wide range of disciplines including: performance, sculpture, installation, photography, ceramics, painting, and printmaking. As one of the premier women’s arts groups in Columbus, CAW is committed to being a safe place for women to be nurtured in their artistic goals. CAW has also had a notable history of community involvement starting with the 2011 exhibit “Strands” which featured visual and performance art about hair, fibers, DNA and other “strands.” The proceeds of the exhibit were donated to the Hair Theater Fund, which helps patients experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy buy wigs or hats. In 2014 CAW members embarked upon a three month partnership with Fort Hayes High School art students. The mentorships between CAW’s professional artists and Fort Hayes students resulted in the powerful exhibit “Exchanges” which blurred the lines of the mentor/mentee dynamic.

The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio is a public foundation that transforms the lives of women and girls by mobilizing the collective power and passion of all women working together. The Women’s Fund creates gender equality and influence through its research and collaborations, promotes social change by growing women’s philanthropy, and by making grants to programs that raise awareness and educate on issues affecting women and girls.

For more information please visit CAW, Tacocat or Womens fund of Central Ohio.

After the opening, tacocat’s gallery is open on Sundays, from 12p – 5p.

Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago! Multiples. Chicago October fair is calling for final entries!

Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 12.19.13 PM

Multiples. is a temporary crossover exposition opening for one weekend in March and October 2014 showcasing objects produced as multiples. As a premise show, Multiples. seeks to span the division between art and craft, which are intimately connected, yet often artificially separated by preconceived notions of social value. Modeled as a hybrid of the contemporary commercial art fair, critical craft markets and an exploration of visual art forms, Multiples. is an affordable option for contemporary artists and makers looking to expose their practice and sell their editions, replicated hand-made, or manufactured works in Chicago. Please click the apply link above to showcase your work at our Spring or Fall expositions, or the about link to learn more about art multiples.

APPLY for this opportunity today! 

Last chance to enter is September 15th. 



For a $450 table fee, you can apply for a standard table arrangement to sell your multiples. Applicants can apply as individuals, or with a group, though applications for groups should include the names of all participating artists, contact info and websites.

For a $225 table fee, you can apply for a shared table. If you have another vendor in mind with whom you’d like to share your table, please indicate their name(s) in the application. Otherwise, the Multiples. team can find another vendor to pair you with from our list of applicants.

NEW! For a $650 installation area fee, you can apply for an 80 sq ft space–this includes no walls, tables or other equipment or guarantee of available wall space–to setup installations of sculpture, installation art, displays or other types of area presentation that requires the additional space to present. Additional equipment may be provided upon request.

For a $225 wall fee, you can apply for a 4′ wide by 8′ high drywall section. Wall sections may be added exponentially (i.e., two 4′ x 8′ sections for $450, and so on) to create a booth for wall display within the fair. Tables are not provided for those applying for wall sections. For a visual example of the wall section layout, please click here.Please note that this is an early rate; after Aug. 15 wall section rates increase to $350.

For a $225 fee, you can also apply to sell your wares from a small roving exhibit, which could be a bicycle, cart, or even a handbag (what, you’ve never heard of Clutch Gallery?) instead of a standard table. This is a fun option for those whose showcase benefits from being able to move freely about the event. Please note this may also include video projection for the visual art category.

The Ohio Craft Museum is Hosting a Night of Clay Sculpting!

Join Ashley Bevington July 22nd!

From Novice to Expert come out and enjoy a night of creativity! Give it all you got and create a masterpiece to last a lifetime.

Already an artist? Share this post with your less creative friends, they will thank you.

You will learn to sculpt a head and facial features, creating a three-dimensional clay portrait to hang on the wall. No clay experience is necessary.

Come early to be inspired by the works in the gallery, a collection of exemplary forms in clay, glass, fiber and wood by 31 artists from across the United States. Independent curator Gwen Heffner selected works that are “dedicated to the human figure as a means of expression and have powerful messages to share.”

This workshop is $12 for members, $15 for non-members. All supplies and firing are included. Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. To register, call the museum at 614-486-4402 or email education@ohiocraft.org for more information.
