Annual Downtowner Holiday mART

DEADLINE FOR ONLINE APPLICATIONS: Wednesday, October 25, 2023, at 11pm
We are excited for a lively winter holiday season of artful shopping in the Downtowner Gallery!
In this Call for Art, we are asking artists to contribute works for consideration that create an exciting and unique art shopping experience for our gallery visitors and Downtown Round Rock shoppers. Our vibe for this year is “Playful Nostalgia,” leaving it open for you to consider what that is in terms of your original artwork and art gifts that feature your artwork.
Artists may submit 1-5 pieces of artwork and/or art gifts for consideration towards this exhibit. Only one application per artist.
All 2D and 3D art. This can include original artworks that are 2D or 3D, as well as art gifts that feature your original artwork on them. As a few suggestions, 2D and 3D artwork can be in the categories of (but not limited to) home décor, gifts, wearable, tabletop, and beyond.
NOTE ABOUT THE APPLICATION PROCESS:
Although you can submit 1-5 pieces of artwork for consideration in your one application, we are requesting only one jpeg image in total from you. This one photo can be a montage of your 1-5 pieces of art that you are proposing. Artists may only submit one application in response to this Call for Art.
