Entries due Monday, March 20 at midnight

Show runs April 7-30

Juried by Dana Cain


Who doesn’t love animals? Whether they’re funny, heartwarming, strange, or twisted, we love animals and the crazy things they do. And we’d love to see art that shows all the different sides of the animals you love.

Animal Crackers is open to all mediums, including painting, photography, mixed media, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, 3D, and drawing. This show will be juried by Dana Cain, famous for her myriad of amazing events in Denver including the Cat Festival and the Denver County Fair. She is also an avid animal lover and long-time supporter of the Denver art scene. 

Artists may submit multiple pieces — $30 for three entries, $10 for each additional entry. All work submitted must be for sale.

A photo gallery of accepted pieces will be posted online and a link will be emailed to the artists by Friday, March 24. Art must be delivered to Kanon on Sunday, March 26 between 12-4 p.m. All pieces must be completely dry and ready to hang (with proper hanging wire or D-rings – no sawtooth hangers) and all pieces need to be labeled with the artist’s name and title. Sculptures need to be able to fit on a standard 12″ pedestal. In case of multiple pieces, please include a diagram if they are to be hung in a specific order and we will do our best to accommodate this. The show will open on Friday, April 7, and run through Sunday, April 30. We will be open from 5-9:30 pm all Friday nights that the show runs.

All artwork must be picked up on Sunday, April 30, between 2-5 p.m. Please email us if you need to make other arrangements. Kanon takes no responsibility for work that is left at the gallery after May 13. You will be given a receipt for each piece submitted and may have someone else bring that receipt to the gallery to pick your work up for you.

Kanon will charge a 30% commission, plus tax, on all work sold. Kanon accepts all major credit cards as well as checks. Payment for work will be available 30 days after the show. Artists are welcome to come and pick up their checks, or they can be mailed to you.

Accepted art may be photographed for emails, our website, and other publicity pieces.
