Call for Art - Utilitarian Art

The Catskill Center is planning an invitational exhibit to highlight the utilitarian art of the Catskill Region. The exhibit will open Saturday, December 3 and run through Saturday, January 21, 2017. An opening reception will be held Saturday, December 3 from 2-4pm.

Many of the products we use every day are not only useful, but should be considered beautiful. Homemade furniture, clothing, baskets, stained glass, pottery, quilts… so many items we depend on for everyday use could be on display as art. Here is your opportunity to share your utilitarian creations in an art setting. Submissions should be sent via email to Katie Palm at Kpalm@catskillcenter.org by October 28.
