a TOUCAN invitational show

CLICK HERE FOR ENTRY FORM

Hello!We’re doing an invitational show at Toucan and hope you will be involved!It’s a callback to a fundraiser that Toucan was involved with in 1996 that had artists and craftspeople making birdhouses (the birdhouses shown below are from that event).This new iteration is meant to recapture that spirit and highlight the contemporary creativity in our community in a multidisciplinary way by including artwork of all kinds.This theme is certainly a play on the various ways in which Toucan finds itself associated with it, i.e., a toucan is a bird, Toucan is in the BIRD (Billings Industrial Revitalization District), we like birds, etc.We look forward to a wide variety of interpretations.The invitation goes like this:On the theme of "bird" (singular or plural), Toucan invites artists, designers, architects, and builders, anyone and everyone, to submit art, design, and construction, for the chance to be included in BIRD(S), an exhibit and sale at Toucan that will coincide with a Grand Opening Celebration at our new location in June.There are 3 categories of entry:1. Art. Interpretation of the theme "bird," singular or plural. 2D or 3D. Any medium. 24x36 or 24x36x24 maximum. (Bigger is not necessarily better.)2. Constructed Birdhouses. Any materials. Must be functional.3. Conceptual Birdhouses. Design only. One 2D design presentation board. 24x36 maximum. (Big ideas, high concept, encouraged.)One entry only via 1 digital image of the piece.Deadline: on or before June 3, 2024.Click here for entry form.+ Selected entries will be displayed at Toucan. (We may do this over a couple of months and rotate the exhibit, depending on the quantity and quality of work received.)+ Work that is for sale will be sold on consignment under a short-term agreement with Toucan that will terminate with the end of the show.+ While we will try to show as many pieces as possible, it should be mentioned that this is a juried show and only selected entries will be exhibited. The nature of the exhibit will be determined by the nature of the entries received and selected.Click here for a PDF with this information.Contact Toucan with any questions:
