DINK Colorado Showcase 2 / TALA Take Art Leave Art / Draw Off 2017

All Colorado based artists who submitted for the 2017 DINK expo are invited to participate in this DINK Colorado Artists Showcase/ Take Art, Leave Art/ Draw Off gallery event.

The DINK Colorado Showcase challenge is to create a piece of art that is not based on any copyright or trademark protected character, other than your own, in order to participate. If you already have original art created that is of your own brainchild, then you are good to go.

We want to challenge artists to create original works that isn’t based on something DC, Marvel, or what someone else created. We want to see what you, yourself have created, here in Colorado.

In addition, we are putting together a second show for the same night, same venue, “TAKE ART, LEAVE ART” or “TALA”. We invite you to participate. We need art—a multitude and of many kinds. Give us your good but “not good enough.” Give us your studies, your mistakes, and your pet projects. We want what you cannot throw away but won't sell. If you are a non-traditional artist of handmade art in other forms such as jewelry, fine crafts, and skilled knitting or embroidery, feel free to bring your art for exchange as well.

TALA is a huge party centered around art and exchange. All levels are encouraged to participate in our eclectic scheme to bring art to the masses. We will paper the walls with as many submissions as we can. We will also welcome artists to create such works at the show and can exchange them for the displayed works during “TALA”. The only rules: replace the piece you take with something of your own and limit yourself to two trades per person. In the atmosphere of frenzy, excitement, and energy that TALA takes on, we ask that everyone please remain civil, and help us make this a fun event for all ages to create a small piece that can be exchanged for another small piece. This will start ushering in the early holiday spirit of giving. Everyone is invited to participate!

At the event, we’ll be holding our Draw Off. More details will be made available leading up to the event.
