Call for Art/Models/Musicians/Vendors October 2013 @ The Mix


ATTN Artists/Vendors: Now comes the time to plan the next big art event at The Mix. Always pursuing variety and change, I encourage all to consider participation in a multitude of ways .

As some of you know Downtown Tacoma is thriving with local art and music in its own unique way. I can certainly offer carpool for those who wants in on this the day of the event. This event is all about the creative community coming together and showing their work and sharing their visions. Though us artists have bills and we always strive to do art/music that’s paid, this event is all about the creative community and showcasing art/music that’s current in the state of Washington. Can’t pursue artistic dreams fully without sometimes sharing your time and talent for free in spirit of collaboration, not competition.

Artists/Musicians: Live art, performance art, interactive art, EXHIBITING art. Provide portfolio and/or website and/or your vision showing us what you do/want to do. Sale of works will be the same as normal except a SILENT AUCTION type of concept will be included.

Volunteers: Anyone from the Creative Community can help out while adding this event to their resume/academic apps. We can always use a hand in facilitating the event/clean up. Marketing and PR help is always appreciated. Perhaps someone great with people would make an ideal NOISE MAKER (courtesy of Tanita for the idea).

Vendors: You got something to sell that you believe is unique and marketable in Tacoma and would like to take up on the opportunity of utilizing a venue at a time of an organized event for your products? Come inquire .

Models: Someone willing to use their bodies for art/performance/figure drawing with confidence and have fun while doing it.

The event will have Halloween elements but the art will be created for art, not Halloween. If the theme fits the holiday great, as we will have a specified theme coming closer to the creation of the event’s flyer.

We work with each artist to include the most celebrated works they have available and find a focus to create new works for the event. Do you have an artist that influences you? If not have you explored artists like Cory Arcangel, Wade Guyton, Lillian Schwartz, Chiho Aoshima, and Sammy Cucher? Those are the kind of questions asked to encourage a flow of creativity and challenge for each individual artist, giving artists a chance to develop themselves among the creative community. What’s your physical medium (inkjet prints on fine art paper, digital transfers with acrylic, etc)?

Artists have to pay 15% commission towards the Mix and Marketing/Promo, while vendors receives 100% profit. Artists will have more leverage in sales and PR since the artists we choose to exhibit attention towards higher standards in studio practices.

All art will have a professional treatment, matting (if necessary), framing, cleaning up edges of canvasses, etc. Our mission is to provide local artists a chance to showcase their works professionally, which I personally believe ANYONE can do.

This will be a 21+ event at The Mix and the target month (subject to change) is in OCTOBER.



About Julian Peña

I'm a visual artist and student currently in progress to attaining a Bachelors of Fine Arts. I've been creating fantastical works of art since I was at the age of 13 years old. My work is transcendent beyond the material world and life itself. The paintings are polychromatic and visually exciting, while still maintaining a level of harmony. The subjects in many of these works of art may not exist at all despite what we perceive. It is a play on perception, an attempt to engage the viewers. I has earned numerous scholarships, participated in several group exhibitions, and already organized my own solo exhibition (CMYK, 2011). My meticulous and unique style is visually arresting. New ideas are constantly being examined and then visually communicated. Come check out my works at! I am is also currently part of the 253 Collective (a co-op) in downtown Tacoma. I currently live and work out of my loft in downtown Tacoma, WA.

Drop me a line!
