“Thread of Life”
A contemporary Day of the Dead exhibition

Artist: The exhibition will present contemporary elements associated with the Day of the Dead for this exhibition. We want to open a unique opportunity for artists to explore new techniques and methods in creating fiber related mediums or elements for this show. Space will be limited, so selected artists will be asked to specifically create a fiber medium or media in a form of a dress or custom. This dress or customs could be of any size (small or large) and could be wearable or not, but self-standing. If you would like in submitting for this show, or have any additional questions about the show theme or requirements, please contact us at email@example.com.
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: August 22nd
Will need samples of your work. Those selected will notified, and we will be sending you additional information about the show, delivery details, loan agreements forms, and opening receptions.
Please send response to us, along with a few pics to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 22nd or before.
About the exhibit: The exhibition will mark the 10th Anniversary of CALACA’s Dia de los Muertos celebrations. Dia de los Muertos has traditionally been a mixed or collage of mediums, cultures, and religions using symbolic and iconic forms to tell the story. For this exhibition we are inviting artists that can bring the highest quality of work by using fiber as a medium/media for its creations. The famous DofD “Catrina” used a typical late 19th century dress, for this exhibition, we would like to bring a more contemporary style to the show. Artists are encouraged to explore new styles that would bring a contemporary flavor to the tradition using fiber art.
Note to Artists:
Total Number of Pieces to Submit: We will be asking selected artists to bring between 1 piece if it is large to medium, may consider up to 2 pieces if work is small.

About the exhibit:
“Hecho a Mano” – Works of Traditional and Contemporary Art – This exhibition will present to the public, works of Mexican traditional artists, as well as art from contemporary local artists. Historically, Mexican artesania (folk art) has traditionally been made for utilitarian purposes, as well as for popular art sake. Influenced from a blend of Indigenous and European techniques and designs, artesania gained its greater popularity at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, artesanos (artists) and their work, have encountered several challenges domestically and internationally. International manufactured products, primarily those made in China, and other similar imitations have flooded the market. Yet artesanos are still creating original pieces, and their artesania work is now influencing new artists both in ideas and techniques. Don’t miss this great opportunity to see a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary art, all in one place. We invite the public and collectors alike. Free to the public.
This exhibition is a partnership between Willo North Gallery and CALACA.
