Call for Cleveland artists to participate in special Heights Arts 'Cleveland Culinaria' exhibition

Heights Arts is accepting submissions from artists in all media for participation in the upcoming special exhibition At Table: Cleveland Culinaria, which will open in March 2016 at the Heights Arts Gallery.  

Selected visual artists will be grouped into creative teams with some of Cleveland’s most inspired culinary artists to design and create an innovative tablescape and surrounding environment that addresses the art of food and community.

The “Culinaria” will act as creative directors for the groups, each of which will have an approximately 10’x10’ space in the Heights Arts Gallery to transform for the exhibition. The complete environment will include original table settings and linens for four, along with photographs, drawings, prints or paintings related to the theme, as well as any other artist wares which the group designs for their environment.

Creative groups will be formed in June 2015 and work together to produce concepts and designs through September. Finished artist wares are due Jan. 31, 2016.
