Visual Artists: Call for Entries (Art Talk Monday)

This week's Art Talk Monday is NCLAC's Call for Entries! It’s time for our annual Call for Entries for the 2013-14 exhibition year. This year, our call is made even more exciting by the addition of new exhibition spaces.  Our art shows run on a three month cycle, with opportunities for solo, small group and large group exhibitions.

Our collaboration with Crescent City Coffee gives us a space here in Ruston where we display solo exhibits. Receptions with snacks and coffee are generally held on Sunday afternoons.

The lobby in the Dixie Center for the Arts, also known as the Piney Hills Gallery, is our space for exhibits featuring work by artists from our outlying parishes. These exhibitions rotate in coordination with Dixie Season Shows.

New for this year is the Bridge Project, with Bossier Arts Council (BAC) and Cultural Crossroads of Minden.  This collaboration will give NCLAC’s juried artists the opportunity to show in spaces coordinated by BAC and Cultural Crossroads, thus “bridging”  the gap between our locations, and providing our artists out-of-the-area exhibition opportunities.

Another new space for displaying artwork will be our partnership with Louisiana Tech University in a student center exhibition space. This space will be for large group shows, featuring “themed” exhibits.  The goal here is to connect various university organizations with the community, and our office is abuzz with excitement about this big project.

In order to be included in our list of juried artists, (to be eligible for exhibiting at Crescent City, Dixie Lobby and the Bridge Project, and to be first notified on calls for the Tech themed shows) those interested must fill out an application (MAY BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR BLOG in the BOX).  If you have questions, please let us know. Our office email is, phone (318)255-1450, address PO Box 911, Ruston, LA 71273
