This Show’s for the Birds

Call for Artists — Christmas Show & Sale

Are you looking for a holiday setting to show and sell your art? Then the Plaza Gallery in Ajo is looking for you. Ajo sits in the heart of the Sonoran Desert and is home to an amazing array of artists and artisans.

If you are interested in entering your work, show coordinator Jacqueline Andes has compiled the following information:

  • Theme and Location
    Christmas Art Show at the Plaza Gallery in Ajo. This is not a juried show and is open to everyone.
  • Art Work
    This is a multi-media show open to all art forms. (Please note: Small pieces are welcome — they will be on display in Art Stop but will appear in the Gallery during the reception.)
    ALL artwork that is to be hung must be properly secured in the frame with clips. Use picture hanging wire. Special clips for securing stretched canvas can be purchased online or are available at most craft stores. Picture wire can be obtained from any hardware store. In the past, some artwork has been delivered for hanging in very bad condition where the volunteers had to secure the artwork before hanging. Artwork that is not secured properly will not be hung and will be returned to the artist.
  • Intake
    Artists can bring their work to the Plaza Gallery on December 2 – 4 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. Please ensure that each piece you are submitting is clearly marked with your name, title, size and price — slips are on hand at the Print Shop next door.(This information is needed to create labels for the wall.)
  • Hanging
    The show will be hung Thursday, Dec. 5th.
  • Reception
    The opening reception is Friday Dec. 6th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Artists who would like to bring treats for the reception, are encouraged to do so — just bring the refreshment along the evening of the reception.
  • Storage
    Small pieces will be held in the Print Shop along with paintings. Some paintings/sculpture will be lined along the Gallery walls until hung.
  • Show Length
    The show will run from December 6 to January 4. All work must be picked up that day as it is also intake day for the annual juried show.
