Applications Open: Second Annual Local Art Sale

Pop-Up Local Art Sale: Ritual and Resilience
Saturday, November 24th, 2018
10 am – 4 pm

2017 Sale

CFPA is excited to host our second annual Pop-Up Local Visual Art Sale on Small Business Saturday, 11/24/18.

In 2017, we featured the work of eight local visual artists: ceramics, textiles, jewelry, paintings and prints, and more. Our event was a gathering place where neighbors, CFPA tenants, CFPA students, and local artists of all stripes were able to gather, connect, and share their work.

We are currently accepting applications from Twin Cities-based visual artists to offer their work at this year’s sale. In tandem with CFPA’s New Works Residency (for performing artists), this year’s event will organize around a theme: Ritual and Resilience. We invite all Twin Cities area visual artists to submit pieces of work that in some way address ritual and resilience: ritual of all types (secular, cultural, religious, spiritual, mundane, ceremonial, invented, reinvented, quoted, etc.) and ritual’s relationship to/with/around resilience. Limited to 10 artist participants.

CFPA’s ReClaim series is an assembly space to connect all kinds of audiences, artists, experiences, and stories. Our events explore the vitality and evolution of American identity, and the ways in which creative works reflect our lived experience (or not). Our events grapple with the stories we hear and see, the stories we make and tell, and the ways in which we are (or are not) changed by creative representations of our experiences. We support artists who engage fiercely with the complex and contradictory nature of the human experience. We support audiences who yearn for greater personal engagement between works of art and the daily life of our community. We assemble for lively questions, dynamic conversation, and to encourage new ways of understanding each other’s lives.
