Taos Institute for Glass Art "Call for Entries"


ARTISTS: Call for Entries
Call for Entries is Now Open
TIGA is announcing the 2010 national call for entries for this year’s ever expanding Taos Art Glass Invitational. The event, produced by the Taos Institute for Glass Arts, is also sponsored by Glass Alliance – New Mexico, the Taos Gallery Association and the Town of Taos and has begun attracting top collectors from around the country. These events will be promoted in national and regional publications, with special emphasis given to personally invite national collectors.

The entry does not require submission of exact works proposed to be shown by the artist. Artists are selected on merit of the body of works submitted, which must be representative of the works the artist will be delivering for exhibition. This type of submission is for the artist’s benefit, in that it enables the artist to show the most recent works he/she has completed instead of a work made 6 or more months before, photographed, and held back for this particular opportunity of exhibition.

Deadline for submission is April 22, 2010. The jury for the Invitational Exhibition and exhibition selections for the Walking On Glass Tour will be announced on May 11, 2010. Works must be shipped or delivered by June 18, 2010.

The show will be mounted on July 1-4, with Private Collector Previews slated for July 5 -6 and Public Openings and Receptions on July 10-11. The show closes August 15, 2010.
