Trash Cat Art Show

Application deadline: August 4, 2022

Art Haus at Hollerbach’s announces a call for artists for Trash Cat Art Show. Consider the theme of ‘trash’. Waste is often defined by context, eg. ‘one person’s trash is another’s treasure’. We are excited to see work that explores the liminality of disposal as a place between acceptance and rejection. Who will claim the refuse? All two dimensional arts including drawing, painting, prints, photography, and more, will be considered for this group show.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, there will be multiple receptions and events for engagement with the exhibition, culminating in the Trash Cat Birthday festival at the West End complex. There is no fee to apply to this call. All pieces are to be available for purchase and a 30% commission on any sales from the exhibit will be donated entirely via Hollerbach’s Has Heart 501(c)(3) to Haven Wildlife. The Art Haus art review committee will select pieces by juried process and will notify all artists who submitted images, whether selected or not.
