Sure you’ve seen holiday displays of cheery seasonal art, festive twinkling lights and adorable character animatronics. THIS IS NOT THOSE THINGS! The 7th annual Wreck The Halls® (WTH) exhibition is the “holiday-ish” art show where local artists create and build the holiday monstrosities they always wanted to build and you always wanted to see! The exhibition will be spread out all over the venue. And again, WTH includes a bad gingerbread house competition!
And guess what? THE CALL FOR ART IS NOW OPEN!!!
Call For Not-So-Holiday
Art, Displays & Animatronics
If you’ve been good all year, THEN THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!
Calling all naughty/demented/twisted/disturbed/fun artist to submit your “holiday-themed” artwork and display/installation proposals! WTH is now open to all mediums from small ornaments to large wall pieces to giant displays.
GUIDELINES/RULES: There are none! Well, other than your submission MUST contain some form of December holiday/seasonal theme. Other than that, go crazy.
ARTWORK: Wall, pedestal and freestanding art does not need to light up or be animated, but we would love to see it generally assault the viewer’s senses.
DISPLAYS/INSTALLATIONS: Proposals are accepted and will be replied to ASAP to allow maximum planning time. If selected, there will be at least 2.5 days at the venue to put together your project. If it lights up or is animated, electricity will be supplied. Triggered sound/music is allowed but volumes need to be adjustable.
It is FREE to submit, but all accepted artists will be required to pay a single $10 registration fee, regardless of the number of pieces selected. Submissions do not need to be for sale, but if so, the gallery will take a 30% commission.
The deadline is 11:59pm on November 13th. All submitting artists will be contacted of our decisions on November 18th. Drop-off info will be sent within the acceptance email. Those long-distance will need to arrange for a local representative to drop off and pickup their art as we are not handling shipping in either direction.
If you have any questions, please contact us first. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing your WTH art!
