Opportunities: LVAA and CAC

1) LVAA: Art Squared

Dear Artist,
Did you participate in the wildly successful 8x8 Sale last year? It's back again as
Art [squared] and we want YOU to be part of it! If you want to confirm your participation, CLICK HERE. We request your confirmation by January 31, 2014.

 Art [squared] is an anonymous art sale that will showcase the work of 200 local artists, in order to supply scholarships and the cost of providing free art lessons for 960 children each year for LVAA's Children's Fine Art Classes (CFAC) program. All works will be exhibited anonymously (signed on the backside, only) and sold on a first-come, first-served basis at PUBLIC, LVAA's gallery at 131 West Main, for $100/ea on March 15, 2014 from 10am-1pm. The anonymity encourages the viewer to respond to each piece on its merits alone. Artwork will be on view for one week leading up to the sale.

Here's how it works:
Each artist may submit up to two 8" x 8" canvases (while supplies last. Canvases provided FREE thanks to Preston Arts Center). Pick up locations and times listed below. Canvases may be picked up immediately.

Fill out the form on the back of the canvas. DO NOT sign your name on the front of the piece, remember it's anonymous! Completed works are due February 28 and can be dropped off at any of the five locations listed below.
Participating artists as well as the public are invited to join us for a festive Art [Squared] reception on Friday, March 7.

As each piece is sold on March 15, the buyer learns the identity of the artist, and a placard with the selling artist's name will replace the artwork. Imagine the powerful sight of 200 works of art and artists' names hung in support of scholarship for 900+ young artists!
