The Arts Council has several opportunities throughout the year for artists to display their work in the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery. This page is for all the open and upcoming call for artists. Artists can also find links to opportunities on this page. If you’ve never entered an exhibit before, that’s OK! ARTSWIN staff are here to help you through the process to help you get your work featured. Contact Gallery Director Andrea Adams to help get started.

Wall to Table (2023)
Wall to Table invites the clay artist to consider the space that 2D and 3D art occupy and work to bridge the gap. Ceramics are often considered “work for the table or pedestal.” We want ceramic artists to show their ability to take their work in a new direction and bring in the walls around them. Ceramic artists may contribute their own 2D contributions or collaborate with other artists.
Considerations for 2D element: sketches that led to the development of the piece; wall art that enhances the ceramic piece; a painting or drawing of the ceramic piece; a print that utilizes the pattern of the ceramic piece. It is entirely up to you.
Entries should be delivered as a “pairing” or cohesive grouping, consisting of a 3D ceramic component, and a 2D wall piece. All wall work must be ready to hang, and all ceramic work must be ready to show. Wall work will not need to be framed or matted, and may be shipped rolled.
Registration for “Wall to Table” is strictly online. Click here for registration and more information.
