Fab Lab Tulsa and the TCC Center for Creativity are partnering to showcase all kinds of makers who are embracing the DIY movement and want to share their work in a gallery setting.  Makers are invited to submit their work for possible inclusion in the upcoming “Makers Gonna Make” exhibition. All types of projects will be considered. Proposals for new work or works-in-progress will also be considered. The exhibition and associated programming are attended by thousands of visitors. Makers and the public will also enjoy a free opening reception on the First Friday in March (March 1, 2019).


Work may be offered for sale, or future works commissioned, but all details of the transaction, including any applicable taxes, must be handled solely by the maker. No commission will be assessed.


Work must arrive ready to display. Please consider how the work will be safely exhibited, considering that no holes can be nailed or drilled into the walls or floor of the exhibition space. Work may be displayed via a hook and wire hanging system, in a glass display case, on podiums, or on the floor. Adhesive decals that are easily removed may be used on windows or walls. Makers may also build/create their own display solution. All exhibitions are deemed at the maker's own risk.


Submissions are via email to Cindy Armstrong,, and should include maker’s full name and contact information. Each maker may submit up to three pieces for consideration, and each submission should include:

- up to three images in JPG format (illustrations/concept drawings for new works are also acceptable)

- dimensions of the work

- materials used

- machines, tools and/or processes used

- brief written description

- special display considerations, if applicable 

Submissions are due by Monday, January 14 at 10 pm. Selected makers will be notified the week of January 14. The exhibition will run March 1 –April 1, 2019.
