Call For Artists – Raleigh Bikes Art Show 2014

The 3rd Annual Raleigh Bikes Art Show will premiere on Friday April 4th, once again being hosted by Benelux Cafe in Downtown City Market. The show will feature bike related paintings, photos, sculpture, sketches, prints, crafts and more (even custom made bike frames!) from local artists and will last throughout the month of March.

Are you a Bike Artist?

We’ll be accepting submissions for the show through March 9th! Email a photo and the details of your work (media, dimensions and price if you wish to sell) to:

Last year had a great amount of variety, but we’re looking for even more, so send us whatever you’ve got! Share our Call for Artists Flyer with your friends!

This year we will not be doing a silent auction, but we will be having a “closing party” on April 29th to have some fun and so that people can pick up their purchases and artists can pick up unsold/not-for-sale artwork.

Do you have an awesome Bike?

We consider bikes to be art in and of themselves, and usual will be featuring a number of bikes hung on the wall throughout the month of April. If you’d like your bike featured, send us a photo of it and what you feel makes it special.

The Oaks and Spokes bicycle festival will take place April 4-13, 2014!

“Oaks and Spokes” as it has affectionately been tagged, was created by a group of cycling advocates in the downtown area, aiming to celebrate bicycles, the people who ride them and the urban fabric that brings it all together in the “City of Oaks.” The 2013 Bicycle Festival was the first of it’s kind in Raleigh, NC.  Due to the diversity of activities, bicycle riders and cyclists of all types came together to celebrate cycling culture in the city. The event which spanned 10-days and was comprised of 13 events attracted an estimated 1,300 participants.  For more information on the activities the press release can be found here and to learn more about the festival see the local coverage here and here.

O&S is excited to announce the dates for the 2014 festival in Raleigh, NC.  We’ve put together a fantastic team and are working hard on establishing a lineup for the events.  Stay tuned!
