Overview

We invite you to contribute to our exhibit “Cabin Couture” Holiday Gift Show at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. 
The show will open on NOVEMBER 17, 2018 and will run thru JANUARY 5, 2019.

Think of an imaginary cabin in your mind and how you would like to live in it making clever use of everyday items. This might include three dimensional objects made anew from vintage finds, interior and exterior furniture reimagined for cabin living, iron works,  hand-made quilts for the bed and other textiles, woven rugs and throws, hand-carved bowls and utensils for the kitchen, ceramics, rustic garden features, artful birdhouses, and art for the sake of artful expression in any medium.
Large and small paintings of two dimensional works are acceptable without specification of size.

Accepted artworks in this annual gift show will offer viewers a look into how you, as the artist, might make selections for your living environment within a smaller footprint.

Number of pieces to submit:
* May provide up to 12 items depending on size, retail priced at approximately $75.00 ea. or under.
* Larger works, such as, paintings or free-standing sculpture, should be limited to 1 to 4 pieces.

Please note the curator(s) have the right to refuse work , even after work is delivered to the gallery, if it does not contribute to the direction, cohesiveness, or available space of the show.  We are looking for high quality execution and thoughtful content that contribute to the vision of the show as stated above.
