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.

Curators: Please start pitching your project ideas to Brigitte via email ! crafthauseditor[at]live.com.

H U N G E RWith diet as a way of life for many in our culture, we’ve been taught that one should Eat to Live. We've forgotten that from the 18th through the early 20th century, being fat was a sign of health, prosperity, and an attraction at a time when food was scarce and many went hungry. Hunger, in all its metaphorical forms, is part of our personal and public conversation. Many of us struggle with HUNGER, and yearn for the pleasure of food, love, possessions, control, sex or POWER. If your work deals with HUNGER, choose five of your best shots. Twenty-four works will be selected for an on-line crafthaus.com exhibition curated by Alice Simpson; tobroaden the conversation to include other artists’ voices and visions on the subject of HUNGER. LET THE CONVERSATION BEGIN! Work in ALL MEDIA is encouraged. …Continue
