Houston Center for Contemporary Craft


If you are an institution, curator or artist working with materials or processes traditionally associated with craft and would like to have work considered for exhibition, The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft’s exhibition committee would like to hear from you.

The Craft Center reviews exhibition proposals on an ongoing basis.
HCCC is a non-collecting institution with a mission to advance education about the process, product and history of craft. The museum has a reputation for cutting edge exhibitions of both traditional and contemporary craft. HCCC is interested in proposals for regional and national multiple artist exhibitions, individual exhibitions, installations and small group shows. Individual artist proposals may also be considered for inclusion in group shows curated by Craft Center staff.

The Craft Center consists of a formal 3000 square foot museum quality space (foot high ceilings and lineal feet of wall space) divided into smaller spaces. The main gallery exhibitions typically range from two to four months in length. An alternative informal “Artist Hall”; space is also utilized for collaborative programming by the exhibition, education and retail departments. Its exhibitions typically run for one month.

Proposals should consist of:

  1. a show statement/portfolio
  2. list of artists or works proposed, including number of art works
  3. slides of sample art works
  4. exhibition budget and prospectus
  5. catalog, press or other support materials if available

Please submit your information to:

Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
ATTN: Exhibition Committee
4848 Main Street
Houston, TX 77002

All proposals should be accompanied by an SASE. The Exhibition Committee meets several times throughout the year. Please allow four-five months for return of materials.
