Crafty Von Craftackerson Strikes Again!

The Craftacular Albuquerque group on DCF has decided to take this community to the NEXT LEVEL! We are planning the 1st Annual Duke City Fix Art & Craft Show.

This is an event that will have a couple of layers to it - so please read more below to see how YOU might be able to participate!

We are looking for artists(art) for a gallery show running 5/16-5/31 at Verb Collective. There will be an evening opening on 5/16, coinciding with the May Arts Crawl.
*art submissions should be related to Albuquerque, DCF, a DCF forum topic, online social communities, etc.
*we need 30-40 pieces of art (of varying mediums & sizes)

We are looking for musicians, performers, or bands to perform at the art opening on the evening of 5/16, or the closing craft show the day of 5/31.

please contact myself, RiRiSynCyr, via response to this post or a DCF message if you are interested in participating as an artist or musician for these events.

We are looking for interested bakers and chefs on DCF to help us out with:
- food for 5/16 gallery opening event: emphasis on cocktail type hors d'oeuvre
- food for 5/31 closing craft show event: emphasis on picnic type pot-luck or bake sale

please contact Vashti with a DCF message if you are interested in participating as a foodie for these events.

Why would you participate?
To show why you love Albuquerque.
To show your support for Duke City Fix.
To share with the rest of the community.
To be recognized in our materials and advertising.

If you really want to participate but aren't artistically inclined, can't sing a tune, knit, or otherwise come up with anything worth eating. IT'S OK! You can volunteer, ORRRR you can also donate to our cause to help make this an amazing event! Any monetary sponsorship would help pay for printing of materials, beverages at either event, and help Verb themselves keep their doors open to do all the great work that they do! Feel free to contact me for more info if you are interested in being a sponsor.

Duke City Fix has done a lot of great things for a lot of people, and this is a great way to show how it (or the Duke City itself) has inspired and changed you. We'd love to see this community come together in a new way, and can't wait to see the outcome!

And don't forget, if you're in the Craftacular Group and want to be in the Craft Show, I still have some booth space left! Contact me!

I think I can contribute a print to this. I'll try to make something new--maybe a monotype or woodcut. I'll stay posted to see how the show develops.

I'm in! I'm a big supporter and friend of Verb, an artist, writer, bike rider, and aspiring community planner by day and duke-city-fixer by night, why wouldn't I be in?!

This is a great idea. Are photographers welcome? If so, I can post a note on our Flickr group...

Also, I'd love to make some food for opening night!

Jacqui and Chantal - you rock! of course we'll accept photography!

I heard when I moved here that this was one of the top 25 most photographed places in the world (the person who said it said it had something to do with Balloon fiesta, and all the gorgeous nature in the state) - I wonder, is that true?

This event sounds like lots fun! Not sure if I’ll be in ABQ in May, but as an avid reader and participant/supporter of dukecityfix I’d like to make a monetary contribution. Vashti where do I sign up?
P.S. I am also a foodie, so please feel free to hit me up if you need a recipe idea.

Cool. Is the entire event going to be at Verb?

Hey there,

I've posted a couple of Call for Artists notices on some locally-focused Flickr groups:

Someone may also want to post this on Craigslist.
