2019 Calls for Entry

Clay Paper Scissors Gallery & Studio is offering 3 calls for entries this year!

Two are more traditional in style: our annual Garden and Holiday shows.

The third is our 10th anniversary celebration! We are calling it the 10 Year Mint. Artists are asked to incorporate a mint tin, which we will provide, into a piece of artwork.

Please see below for more information on each show and how to participate. Each show has information on when it will take place, how long it will be open and when work needs to be in Cheyenne. If you are accepted, you will also receive this information by email along with shipping information and how to prep your work for showing.

The annual In the Garden exhibit showcases artwork made for and about gardens. Held annually in the early spring, the show brightens the last months of snow and cold. Think widely about gardens! They can be wild or tame, imaginary or the one outside your door. Garden of Eden, or a park, or natures’s garden: wilderness. Artwork can be made to be used indoors or out, or just to delight the eye and spark the imagination. Abstraction welcome! Surprise us!

To enter, send an email with contact information and images of representative work to claypaperscissors@claypaperscissors.com. This exhibit takes place in March and April of 2019 and opens on March 14. Work would need to be in Cheyenne by March 1.

10 Year Mint!
It’s Clay Paper Scissors’ 10 year anniversary this year! Help us celebrate by creating a new piece of work that includes a mint tin, as pictured above. These small tins have sliding tops. You may do whatever you want to the tin, as long as it is included in some manner in the finished artwork. Use the tin any way you want: cover it up, add to it, erase the writing on it, use it to create texture…

Artwork will be displayed in the months of May and June and must be in Cheyenne by May 1 or sooner. The show opens Thursday May 9 during Artwalk.

To participate, send an email to claypaperscissors@claypaperscissors.com with your address and we will mail you 2 tins along with an information sheet. The sooner you request tins, the sooner you can get started creating a piece!

Holiday Show
Each year in November and December we showcase artwork with an eye towards gifting. It has included everything from ornaments and cards to jewelry and pottery of all sizes to quilts and paintings and much in between. Our patrons come looking for the interesting and unusual.

To enter, please send an email to claypaperscissors@claypaperscissors.com with holiday in the subject line. Include your name and contact information, and representative images of your work. This exhibit runs November and December and will open on November 14. If you are accepted, you will receive more information on when your work would need to be in Cheyenne.
