Art Shows of Note...

As artists, we strive for perfection in our art and certainly, a little promotion is a good thing too! For some of us, participating in local art and craft shows is a way to "get our art out there".

Some shows have become nationally known as the cream of the crop. The following two are definitely worth aspiring toward.

September 26, 2009
Hermann Sons Hall
860 Western Ave
Petaluma, CA 95476
Halloween and Vine is a juried art show that celebrates the Harvest, Wine and Halloween. Held in the heart of downtown Sonoma, artisans from across the country gather to show and sell their wonderful works to the public.

Another prestigious show, though not focused on Halloween is the
April 22 - 26, 2009
National Building Museum
401 F Street NW
Washington DC 20001
The Smithsonian Craft Show is the nation’s most prestigious juried exhibition and sale of contemporary American crafts. One hundred and twenty master artists and emerging talents from across the country offer their latest one-of-a-kind and limited-edition work in basketry, ceramics, decorative fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, wearable art, and wood.

  1. Yes, the halloweenandvine is in my town. I actually emailed a few years ago and was told no new artists were being considered. Tried again a couple of months ago, and was told I would be getting a contact in the mail...nothing yet,though! I would have to get busy pretty quickly then-have a few unfinished pieces, but nothing done!

    If anyone else is entered or coming to see it, give me a call! I would love to meet some HA31 members "in person", and I can show you the Petaluma sights!
