Calling all Artists and the Creatively Spirited!
Are you interested in:
* Being a featured artist for Second Saturday exhibits at the Museum?
* Teaching workshops to the community?
* Giving live demonstrations of homesteading skills and crafts (think butter churning, wool spinning)?
The Palmer Museum of History and Art is looking for artists/writers/ performers/educators for numerous events and activities throughout the 2016 season. The possibilities are endless!
During the months of February through November we are looking for artists to participate in the Palmer Art Walk, which is a part of the valley-wide event, Second Saturdays (www.valleyartsalliance.com) Throughout the year, the Museum also hosts an eclectic Temporary Exhibit program that encompasses a variety of media. The Museum is constantly searching for artists to be a part of these exhibits.
If you love teaching, we are looking for exciting new classes to get the community involved and create a fantastic lineup of workshops for 2016. Previous workshops include: making a bent willow trellis, basket weaving, and digital photography to name a few. It is a great way for artists to get involved with the community while earning a little extra income!
And for those of you who are skilled artisans or tradesmen and women, we are looking for people to offer hands-on educational demonstrations of the types of activities one might find during the colony era. Do you know how to make cheese, spin wool or needlepoint? Or perhaps you are a horse farrier, ironworker, or show cobbler? If so, we want to know!
