Raices Taller 222 Art Gallery & Workshop


February 1, 2020 – February 29, 2020

Opening Celebration: Saturday, February 1, 2020 6:00 - 9:00 pm




Carnaval in Latin America and the Caribbean is a time of celebration.  Though Carnaval began in acknowledgement of a religious event, the celebration now incorporates traditional festivities related to the seasonal transition from winter to spring, and invites all ages and social classes to take part.  Whether rich or poor, old or young, Carnaval is a time for everyone in the community to let loose by joining in various forms of ritual, play and masquerade.  By wearing outrageous disguises, playing rowdy games and engaging in all-out revelry, communities bond through the shared sense of exhilaration and renewal that the Carnaval experience inspires.  These celebrations are the subject of our upcoming exhibition "Carnaval".

You are encouraged to submit paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture & mixed media artwork reflecting the spirit of Carnaval - masquerade, play, masks, circus, tarot, magic, ritual & renewal.


1. All 2 dimensional artwork must be complete and ready for installation with appropriate hanging hardware, wires, and/or frames.

2. All 3 dimensional artwork must be complete and ready for installation.  Sculpture consideration includes size, suitability for the display environment, and safety.



1. To submit electronically, email jpeg images of your work to be reviewed to RaicesTaller222@aol.com by end of day Saturday, January 25, 2020.  In your email, please include your name and telephone number as well as the name of each piece, dimensions, medium and price.  Entries not containing this information will not be considered.

2. To submit in person, bring in your work to be reviewed to the gallery on Monday January 27, 2020 or Tuesday January 28, 2020 from 4 - 7 pm.
