Artist Calls For Entry

We’ve got some exciting “Cash & Carry” news!
We’ll have the panels to give away by the middle of next week, and we’ll have a few different sizes for you to work on, but in addition, we have a challenge for you:
Did you know that one traditionally gives tin and aluminum as tenth anniversary gifts? In addition to making art on our panels, you can make holiday ornaments out of recycled food and beverage cans, and we will hang them on a tree here for customers to buy!
Every piece on a panel will sell for $30, with the artist receiving $24; ornaments will sell for $20, with the artist receiving $16.
​Work due Saturday, November 18th.
The show runs Monday, November 20th, through Friday, December 29th.
Sales will start at 6 p.m. on Friday, December 2nd, during downtown Bloomsburg’s “Coming Home for Christmas” event; as usual, at the beginning, buyers will have to take numbers, and each buyer will get to buy ONE AT A TIME at the beginning.
We’ll let you know as soon as we’ve got the panels here; for now, start washing out your tin cans!

“Food for Thought” open call

“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.” – Voltaire

As one of our basic life needs, food has been a popular subject matter throughout modern art and art history. Depictions of food can be found in Italian Renaissance paintings, on Roman mosaics, and inside the Egyptian pyramids. Food is the cornerstone of holidays, celebrations, and the Bloomsburg Fair! Everything from fruits and vegetables to delectable desserts, elegant cuisine to greasy diner platters – we love it all, and we want to see it all! The Exchange invites you to submit artwork on the delicious theme of food.

    The Exchange asks artists and show-goers to donate non-perishable food items during the

    duration of this exhibition. At the end of the show, we will bring your donations to the

    Bloomsburg Food Cupboard.
