Call for Artists:


The Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative is delighted to announce the return of Ready to Hang, a community-wide art show that nearly blew the doors off the CAW in 2019, was placed on hold in 2020 due to the pandemic, and will now be back! In November of 2021.

This show is invites local artists to submit art 12 x 12 inches in size for a one-weekend show at the Community Arts Workshop. As a "come one, come all" art show, Ready to Hang joins some of Santa Barbara’s most experienced artists with emerging artists, resulting in a vital source of support to our local creative community. An artists’-only party on the eve of the show allows artists of all stripes, types, and backgrounds to support and encourage each other’s work—building our creative community.
Ready to Hang will of course abide by current COVID regulations.
