Our purpose in curating shows is to promote good artwork. We try to make the process as painless as possible.
We received 65 images from Crafthaus artists for Off the Floor (opened July 31). A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery, it offers a permanent stage. We do love gallery shows, but here at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members.
