The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) has announced a call for artists for CraftTexas 2022. The annual juried exhibition is in its eleventh year and continues to serve as an opportunity for the public to learn about craft art across the state, and for artists to have their work considered for inclusion in museum and private collections.

The exhibition will feature Texas craft artists working in clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood, and found/recycled materials. Juror Andres Payan Estrada, who serves as Curator of Public Engagement at Craft Contemporary in Los Angeles, will award three merit prizes of $1,000 each.

To be eligible artists must:
– reside in Texas
– work with the any of the accepted media listed above
– have work available for the duration of the exhibition (October 1, 2022 – January 7, 2023)
– have crafted work that can fit through a 4 x 8 foot door and that does not exceed 200 pounds
– present work that has not been exhibited at HCCC in the past

In an effort to support accessibility, HCCC has eliminated the application fee for this call. The deadline to apply is April 30, 2022. To learn more and apply, visit the HCCC website.
