Organization Name: The Confluence: Art in Twisp

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


We invite you to contribute to our exhibit “Forged” at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. The show will open October 12, 2024 and will run through November 16, 2024.
“Forged” will be a visual arts show featuring art forms that use fire or heat in their process, such as encaustic, fumage, glass, ceramic, pottery, welding, bronze casting, and forging. While the show will have no specific theme, we are aiming for an industrial, modern, stark vibe for this show.
You may submit up to 6 pieces, depending on their sizes. We are looking for 2D and 3D wall-mounted pieces, tabletop pieces, and free-standing floor sculptures.

Each piece must be:
–  Your own original work
–  Available for sale
–  Never previously shown at The Confluence
–  Any size*
–  Any medium, as long as it uses fire or heat in its production process
–  Ready for hanging with appropriate hardware/wire secured to work (works without hanging hardware will not be hung.)
Please note, the curator has 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.
All emailed correspondence for this show must include “Forged” in the subject line and be sent to
