Burke Prize

Named for Marian and Russell Burke, two passionate collectors of craft and longtime supporters of MAD, the Burke Prize is an annual award that reinforces the Museum’s commitment to celebrating the next generation of artists working in and advancing the disciplines that shaped the American studio craft movement.   

The prize is an unrestricted $50,000 award made to a professional artist age 45 or under working in glass, fiber, clay, metal, or wood.

Each fall, the Museum presents an exhibition of works by the Burke Prize finalists. The winner is announced at MAD Ball, the Museum’s annual fundraising gala

Abstractly Speaking

This call seeks to highlight art which is non representational and unconcerned with literal depiction, instead relying on the visual language of form, color, line, texture, mark-making and process, as a means to an end.

***All mediums welcome.

The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. All applicants should submit an artist’s statement about their body of work. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72" horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG.

Juror: Melanee Cooper, Owner + Director, Melanee Cooper Gallery

Humans Of The Earth: HOTE Gallery Is Accepting Submission For Its "WHAT CLIMATE?!"  Exhibition. 

The issues of climate change are in no way new, but according to recent news, the speed and sheer magnitude of the impact have been underestimated throughout the last decades. As cities are being erased by wildfires, and islands disappearing due to rising sea levels and storms;  new reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the National Climate Assessment sound the alarm on the grim, fast-moving global climate impact.  

The exhibit will focus on the issues relating to Climate Change, sustainability, ecology, pollution, and the environment.
