Artist Call Detail5x7 Exhibition & Art Splurge
For International artists
Artist Call – 5″x7″ Exhibition and Art Splurge
The MGMA is asking artists to donate 5″x7″ (or 7″x5″) works in any media…think paintings, drawings, tiles, sculpture, fabric, mixed media, etc.
This Fundraiser will offer original art at a flat rate of $100 ($75 for current HAC Members) so that all art is accessible to everyone. All proceeds support the MGMA and Youth Art Education Programs.
- The HAC in the MGMA announces a fundraiser that will offer donated original art at a flat rate of $100 ($75 for current HAC Members) so that all artworks are accessible to everyone. The HAC supplies a 5″x7″ panel (or use your own mount) which will keep your costs low, and you don’t even have to frame it.
- We’ll welcome works in any media that fits the 5”x7” dimensions…think paintings, drawings, tiles, sculpture, fabric, etc. Jewelers, you can mount your work on a 5″x7″ board or panel! With a deadline of April 11th, all the artwork will be displayed in the Anderson Gallery at the MGMA—imagine a gorgeous, multicolor, multidimensional grid of hundreds of works! The exhibition will run from May 7th through May 22nd. The 5”x7” Art Splurge will begin on May 7th during Arts Alive from 6 to 9 p.m.
- Here’s the trick…the artwork will be hung anonymously and patrons won’t know whose work they’ll be picking. Value and name recognition is leveled in this sale while fun and suspense is increased. 30 first-pick tickets will be sold at $50 each prior to the Splurge on a first-come, first-serve basis. After the 30 first-pick ticket holders have chosen their pieces to buy, the artwork is available to all for just $100 ($75 for current HAC Members–another great reason to become a member today!).
- To level the playing field, all work will be displayed anonymously in order for supporters to purchase works for pure pleasure. Of course, artists will identify themselves on the back of each work.
