About CaFÉ Call for Entries:

In addition to submitting work to the Taos Banner Competition, the Taos Arts Council also endorses
CaFE as an extremely useful resource for local Artists to be aware of and add to their options for placing artwork. By opening a free account, artists are able to access both private and public ‘calls for artists’ in a variety of settings, locations and mediums. These include galleries, institutions, government entities, museums and other such venues. The staff at CaFÉ is very helpful and overall CaFÉ is a very useful resource for artists in general.
