Calls for Art

We have many shows throughout the year in our Acorn Gallery. Check in monthly to see what is coming up.

 

Hats & Masks Fundraiser

We're trying something new this year for a fundraiser. It's an exhibit, but it's a little different than the way we usually do exhibits. The juried entries of wearable hats or masks will show on the community wall and throughout the gallery during the month of October. Entrants will be able to pick up any unsold pieces just in time to wear them for their Halloween parties. Click below for more information and entry form.

Registration Deadline: EXTENDED! Enter by September 25. Artists must pre-register. Be sure to include entry fees!

Show Dates: September 28, – October 25, 2019
Open to all Colorado artists. Masks and hats of all kinds: Traditional/Cultural/World; Sci-fi/Cosplay, Masquerade, etc.

Dia de los Muertos, A People’s Choice Show

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), is a time to remember and celebrate the lives of our family and friends. More about reveling in life than remembering death, this unique day encourages us to connect with loved ones while reflecting on the ties that connect our past to our present. It is a time to honor the beauty of connection with our ancestors. Community participation is a powerful part of this holiday, which is why we’re calling on local artists to contribute to this lively and fun exhibit. Artists are encouraged to combine traditional themes with their own aesthetic. Click below for more information.
