Calling all Creative Minded People that can transform a 6x6 wood panel into a piece of Art

Deadline: October 6, 2018

THE 6X6 AUCTION IS HERE AGAIN! THIS YEAR'S THEME IS "Expressions of Color". Download instructions HERE: 

The 6x6 Auction is a fun community exhibition and fundraiser. Everyone in the community, from beginner artists to experts (and everyone in between), is invited to take part by creating a 6"x6"-sized work of art and donating it to the Gallery to be sold by silent auction!

Blank 6"x6" wood cradle panels are available now at the Gallery for just $4, or artists can make their own out of any material.

All the artwork will be exhibited for four days, October 16-19, with all pieces up for sale by silent auction during this time. A fun Wine & Cheese on Friday Oct 19 marks the grand finale of the 6x6 Auction, with appetizers, wine, craft beers, and frantic final bidding!

You can put in as many 6x6s as you like! Finished artwork can be dropped off at the Gallery at any time, but the final deadline for submission of artwork is 4pm, October 6, 2018.

THREE SIMPLE RULES

1. The finished artwork must measure 6"x6" and be ready to hang (we can hang cradle panels directly from the frame but everything else should have hanging wire/hooks).
2. It must be signed on the BACK only - the auction is anonymous, this adds fun and intrigue for bidders trying to guess the artist!
3. You can use any medium, style, or material.

 

SHOW DATES: OCT 16-19,2018
WINE & CHEESE: FRIDAY OCT 19
DEADLINE FOR ARTWORK: OCTOBER 6th at 4:00 PM. 

This event is one of the Gallery’s most important fundraisers, with all proceeds from the silent auction going towards the ongoing costs of providing free exhibitions and low-cost workshops, art classes and kids’ programs. The Gallery is a non-profit organisation run almost entirely by volunteers and depends on grants, fundraising, and commission on art sales to operate.
