PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
All shows are member-curated with images chosen from members' artwork and work by artists outside of crafthaus!
Crafthaus is a democratic forum: EVERY crafthauser regardless of location, academic or media background is invited to submit short proposals and ideas to the editor at any time. We like "unusual" exhibition ideas. A lot!
Please note: Work shown can be from fellow crafthaus artists but we also strongly welcome exhibits that broaden the scope and include artists outside of the crafthaus community.
Members will curate their online shows and are solely responsible for their exhibitions from beginning to end. Of course, technical assistance is always available as needed. crafthaus does not interfere in curatorial decisions.
A typical exhibition contains about 20+ images. If a show has an "open call" (see listings below) all artists are invited and encouraged to contact the curators and submit images via email for the exhibitions posted.
NOTE: There will be absolutely no fee collected from submitting members, and no renumeration will be paid to the curators either ! This is an effort to give all members a chance to do something just for the fun of it, select work or have work shown without regard to the usual hassles and cost of shipping, insurance, storage considerations, and so on.
Exhibitions will remain on crafthaus even after the official exhibition time has passed. Curators and artists are encouraged to add their participation into their bios, with a direct link to the respective page. Because crafthaus grows and work gets added to the site daily, some curators choose to continually evolve their exhibitions even after the official time has passed, therefore taking another look at past exhibitions might reveal new pieces.

Call for Artists - A crafthaus Online ExhibitionExhibition Date Aug 22 - Sept 22Deadline to submit: July 15, 2014 A Harvest used to describe a traditional method of collecting ripened foods and crops, on small independent farms often managed by the family. Today, with mechanized farming and modern industrial agriculture, the word harvest is almost redundant. We are less connected to the land and less in touch with the seasons as most foods are available year round. So what does “Harvest" mean in today’s world? Is there a new context for this word? Does it have a place in the world of ideas, business and commerce or any other modern activity?The works selected for this exhibition offer an interpretation of the traditional understanding of Harvest, a more modern take on the idea, or the juxtaposition of the two.This crafthaus online exhibition is looking for craft work in all media.No entry fee. All are welcome to submit entriesPlease submit to…Continue

Curators of online exhibitions are now invited and encouraged to also include images and information from artists outside of the crafthaus network. This change in procedure was made at the request of the crafthaus membership.The goal is to widen the network and to open up exhibition possibilities to allow for an even greater range of work to be shown. As before, explicit permission to include work in a crafthaus online exhibition must be given by every participating artist regardless of their being a crafthaus member or not! Any questions, get in touch with me!Continue
