Call for Entries


Two Hands Paperie is excited to announce our fall 2014 Call for Entries: Ofrenda. Create a boxed Ofrenda (Spanish for ‘offering’) and submit it to Two Hands Paperie between October 1-25. Ofrendas are a colorful part of the Mexican celebration Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). These personalized, sacred altars can incorporate photos, mementos, paper, or personal ephemera into their sacred space. Use new or old materials to create a self-contained boxed ofrenda no larger than 11×14 inches that is able to sit on a shelf or hang on the wall.

We are excited to announce Laura Lambrecht as the juror for this Art Call. Laura owns Bella Frida in downtown Louisville and is passionate about Mexican Folk Art and the Día de los Muertos celebration.

If you’re interested in participating but don’t know where to begin, check out Laura’s Ofrenda Class on October 16th or stop in for her Visiting Artist event on Friday, October 10th. During her Visiting Artist event, Laura will discuss and show artwork from the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration. For further inspiration, you can also visit our Ofrenda Pinterest page for a gallery of ideas.
