If you are an institution, curator or artist working with materials or processes traditionally associated with craft and would like to have work considered for exhibition in the Artist Hall, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft’s exhibition committee would like to hear from you.

HCCC is interested in proposals for regional and national multiple artist exhibitions, individual exhibitions, installations and small group shows.

  3. 5-10 digital samples of art work

  4. An exhibition budget and prospectus, if applicable

  5. Any catalogs, press, or other support materials, if available
