Spokane’s annual Queer Art Walk will be on Friday, June 3, 2022, with citywide events and art exhibits! Spokane Queer Art Walk is a city-wide celebration of LGBTQIA2S+ artists and performers with exhibits and events at Spokane galleries, libraries, cafes, and other venues! Curate or coordinate your own event featuring queer artists, or reach out if you’re interested in hosting an event but need assistance booking an artist. If you’d like your gallery to be included on the Queer Art Walk, just email — and let us know! We’ll follow up in the spring to make sure we have all the details on the exhibit or event to include in the art walk map & promotions.

Call for art & craft: Materials Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition & Exhibition

The Greater Denton Arts Council proudly presents the 35th annual Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition. Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. The exhibition celebrates the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media: clay, fiber, glass, metal, paper, wood, or any combination of craft media. Exhibition is open to national & international artists. The 35th anniversary exhibition expands two galleries, both the Meadows Gallery and the Gough Gallery at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center in downtown Denton, Texas. Artwork will be included in a printed catalog and online exhibition.
