About crafthaus Exhibitions:

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.

Harvest

Started by Cyd Rowley Feb 18. 0 Replies

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

Important change to the online exhibitions procedures!

Started by Brigitte Martin. Last reply by Michelle Pajak-Reynolds Aug 31, 2011. 2 Replies

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

Due to a few cancellations, we currently have a number of 2014 online exhibitions slots open. Have a brick and mortar exhibition you'd like to share online or would you like to curate your own from scratch? Student work to show off? Send me an email and we'll get you going.

Looking forward to your ideas!

APPLE PIE?

Hungry? Instead of eating, make something for the HUNGER exhibition at crafthaus.

Brigitte, Could you repost the information/call for the Black and White OL Exhibit? Thank you!

Comment by Emily Watson on June 30, 2012 at 5:24pm

I'd been wondering about the B&W exhibit myself!   Thanks for the update!

Comment by Brigitte Martin on June 30, 2012 at 6:59am
The b/w exhibition is still in the running, I received many entries. However, a lot of crafthausers also have had great ideas for exhibitions and their exhibitions have priority. Currently, the member curated monthly online exhibitions are scheduled through the Summer of 2013! It's a full schedule.
If you still want to send in images for consideration, pls do. [crafthauseditor at live dot com]

Hi All,

What happened to the "Black & White" exhibition?

I remember sending pics a long time ago...

Comment by alice simpson on December 31, 2011 at 8:29pm

The good news was Portrait of the Artist as Marie Antoinette won Award of Distinction and $250. That will just about cover the packing and shipping to and from.

Don't get me wrong. I am very pleased and grateful to have won, but as the costs rise, entering becomes a consideration.

Comment by Catherine Marche on October 26, 2011 at 5:02pm

You are so right Alice! That reminds me to add to my yearly expenses entry fees.  Let's hope your entry is accepted and that you jewelry sells

Dear Brigitte,

I appreciate that you have created the criteria for online exhibitions.

Recently, I entered my work in an exhibition; the entry fee was $35.

The two delicate sculptures which were accepted, had to be specially wrapped, double boxed, then shipped via UPS, which cost $100. They will undoubtedly be sent back to me. Hopefully, the gallery will re wrap them in the original supplied bubble wrap and boxes. Even then, it will be another $45. 

In order to pay a 50% commission to the gallery, should the work actually sell, I doubled the price.

As these expenses rise, it gets to be a more and more difficult decision to enter exhibitions.

Thanks for all you do,

Alice Simpson

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
