CATALYST UNCONVENTIONAL ART SHOW
Welcome to our very first, Call for Artists for this years CUAS! We have been wanting to host an unconventional art show for some time now, and finally, here we are! What do we mean by unconventional? Well, the best way to explain it is that for this show we are eliminating all traditional surfaces known to artists. This means, no forms of traditional art paper, canvas, or panel boards. What this leaves, is up to your imagination. We want to put together an exhibit that is not only different, but also challenges you, the artist, to create on something unconventional. With your participation, we can create an exhibit of extremely unique pieces for the community and collectors to see, experience, and purchase.
Two month exhibit, from August to September 2023.
This show will get high visibility as it will also be exhibited and open to the public during our business districts popular, National Night Out street closure celebration, which occurs annually and always draws a huge crowd. This years, National Night Out celebration will occur on Aug 1, 2023.

Be mindful of space
Our studio is a mixed use space and is approximately 1000sqft. We host regular classes, workshops, and events within the same gallery space. Because of this, we would like to ask that your pieces be reasonable in footprint. Preferably, something hangable or easily displayed against a wall to allow continued functionality of the space.
For this exhibit we are allowing entry of outdoor art pieces. This is art that can withstand the elements and is ok by you to be left outdoors. It can be hangable or freestanding in our private patio.
