In celebration of 12 artful years, we are having our Second Annual 6×6 Silent Auction. The artwork will be on display, and available for bids, from June 14, 2016 through June 25, 2016. Join us at 6 p.m., Saturday, June 25, for our culminating event. Lite fare and beverages will be provided as patrons bid on over 100 beautiful pieces of artwork submitted by various artists.
Whether you are a Mispillion Art League member, artist, friend or neighbor – we need your help and donations. Any artist who wishes to participate may donate a finished piece of six-inch square artwork.
Here are a few details:
- All art media, surfaces, and genres may be accepted as long as the outside dimensions are six inches by six inches (15cm).
- Artists must be at least 15 years old to participate.
- Gallery-wrapped canvases are available at the Mispillion Art League. The first canvas is free; any additional canvases are $1.00 each.
- All artwork must be original, no prints, or material subject to copyright infringement; Mispillion Art League has the right to decline any artwork
- Attach hooks and wire for hanging.
- All fundraising proceeds will benefit Mispillion Art League Programing
Interested artists may pick up a form with rules and regulations at the gallery.
Artists are asked to bring their donations to the art league no later than Saturday, June 11, 2016. Donated artwork will be eligible for the silent auction. All proceeds benefit Mispillion Art League programs.
Last year, we raised more than $2,500 by auctioning 100 unique 6×6 artworks donated by local artists. Mixed Media, Oils, Acrylics, Watercolors, and Photography were all included in last year’s FUNdraiser.
