Deep Ellum Arts Festival opportunities for artists

Deep Ellum Arts Festival 2017

The all-volunteer Deep Ellum Community Association hosts a “Deep Ellum Village” within the Deep Ellum Arts Festivall

which will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 7, 8 and 9 this year.  We are having a special emphasis on providing an opportunity for artists and performers to actively demonstrate and practice their craft.  For artists, we will have an area for you to actively produce your art during the festival.  In addition, you may wish to rent a booth to sell your art, help us produce artistic signage and/or work in the marbling tent and actively demonstrate your artistic skills there.  If you are a performer, we would love to include you in the activities happening in the Deep Ellum Village during the Festival.

The opportunities are the following:

  1. Rent a booth to sell your art or split a booth with another artist. Booths cost $350 for a 10×10 but are discounted 50% to Deep Ellum based artists and handcrafters. https://form.jotform.com/50564567835970
  1. Be an “active” artist or performer for at least 4 hours and share a booth with that day’s other active artists and performers at no charge.“Active artists” sign up for a time slot and produce/create their art in the designated area during that time slot. https://form.jotform.com/70066448693969
  1. Help produce the artwork which will serve as the signage within the Deep Ellum Village.
  2. Help in the “marbling” booth and demonstrate your artistic talent and offer information about yourself to those you assist.
  3. Enter the Arts 4 Dumpsters contest and potentially win up to $4,250.  See details at www.DallasZeroWaste.com

Calling all Artists: Environment Texas Art Contest


Environment Texas is hosting an art contest for our campaign: “Methane: UT’s dirty little secret.” The University of Texas is involved in the one of the largest oil and gas operations in America. The drilling operations pollute huge amounts of methane, which is harming our planet. UT doesn’t require companies who lease its land to use available technology to cut methane pollution. We’re calling on UT to require the companies that drill on UT owned land to cut methane emissions in half in the next five years.

To help get the word out about this important campaign we’re calling on artists! The art submissions must represent the purpose of the campaign which is to have UT reduce their dangerous methane emissions from fracking operations happening on UT owned lands. We will be accepting any medium of art, from photographs to sculptures, it’s up to you! All art will be displayed after the competition has ended. This is a unique opportunity to have your artwork displayed, and it’s for an important cause!

Deadline Nov. 30 https://www.facebook.com/events/1366240240082849/

about the exhibition

Heroes in the Making: The Art of Comic Production
Presented in partnership with More Fun Comics and Games

September 16, 2016 – December 10, 2016
Patterson Appleton Arts Center
$5 special exhibition admission; Free for GDAC members, students, and children under 12

From classic D.C. and Marvel heroes to independent artists and graphic novelists, today comic art surrounds us in print, toys, films, and online. But how do such artists create the heroes of tomorrow? This interactive exhibition brings together original illustrations, published works, scripts, and sketches to explore the history and future of comic production. Enjoy a selection of works from comic masters Jack Kirby, Curt Swan, Keith Giffen, Stan Lee, and Richard Sala, including such beloved characters as Superman and Silver Surfer. With a “behind-the scenes” focus on how comics are made, visitors of all ages can create their own comics in hands-on maker stations or enjoy their favorite comics in our reading lounge.

This exhibition is organized by the Greater Denton Arts Council in partnership with guest curator Josh Rose. Josh Rose is an art historian and comics enthusiast. He is a graduate of the University of North Texas and has held positions at the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, and Office of Cultural Affairs, city of Dallas. He is currently faculty at El Centro College.
