Past Call to Artists


Calling all Fiber Artists!

              Art in the Open: Furry & Feathered Art in the Open is a new public art program, put in place by TCA, with the goal being to promote public art in the new Creative District. Art in the Open aims to stimulate growth and economic development in underdeveloped corridors, and bring interest to our Historic Downtown. Furry and Feathered will be the first of many projects to come! The challenge: up to twenty teams of fiber artists will compete to yarn bomb trees along the W Jackson Street corridor. This yarn bomb celebrates wildlife and will go up during this year’s Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival. Each team will create a fiber art sleeve for the tree trunk and will add embellishments of wildlife animals that are felted,  knitted and created with any other form of fiber art. Deadline is August 31st. Teams can be up to three people, or it can be a solo artist! Art in the Open: Furry & Feathered is powered by Hurst Boiler, in partnership with TCA, Fuzzy Goat, Lowe’s and the City of Thomasville. Without their support and the support of our community, none of this would be possible! View the Furry & Feathered Prospectus Here!   Sign... read more

Participate in Flaunt 2014

FLAUNT 2015 Information COMING SOON! Last year’s FLAUNT public art project highlighted the talent of both our painters and our makers-all wood workers, potters, and 3D artists, that’s you!  The theme of the event was Pop It Up!, and the cause was History.  Throughout the entire month of September, there were temporary shops, cafes, murals, and performances “popping up” along historic W Jackson St, once referred to as “The Bottom”.  This public art event was the kickoff for the new Arts District that includes the W Jackson St corridor, while celebrating it’s history. The Competition The event featured two art competition pieces.  The first was a mural project: 30 painters competed for $1500 in prizes and a THOM Magazine spread, painting a 12 x 15’ mural, inspired by a historical image (images provided by Thomasville Historical Society and Jack Hadley Black History Museum).  All murals were black, white, and grey with a pop of one color (the artist choose the pop of color).  Painters were also allotted a space to sell their work on the bricks.  The second group of artists- the makers- competed for a second set of the same prizes.  Each maker competed for their own pop-up shop on the bricks (inside of a business) for the month of September.
