|Artwork accepted for "The Grand Picture"|
Do you create artwork but rarely show it? Or do you frequently exhibit your artwork but would like an exciting new venue to show your work? I would like to invite you to participate in “The Grand Picture,” an exhibition featuring regional artists.
“The Grand Picture” is a silent auction fundraiser for the North Valley Arts Council (NoVAC), and is part of An Evening with the Arts, an annual celebration of the regional arts community that includes the presentation of NoVAC’s Annual Arts Awards. An Evening with the Arts takes place Tuesday, Jan. 27, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Each artwork on display at “The Grand Picture” will include a ballot box in which event attendees can place “ballots” (one dollar bill equals one ballot) to vote for their favorite artwork. Artists keep all vote proceeds, while NoVAC keeps the proceeds from the auction bids.
Artists can select a category in which they wish to be included:
• First-time exhibitor – youth: artists under the age of 18 who have rarely, or never, had the opportunity to show their artwork;
• First-time exhibitor – adult: artists over the age of 18 who have rarely, or never, had the opportunity to show their artwork;
• Veteran exhibitor: artists who regularly exhibit their art.
Artists are invited to submit one or two original works in any media, size or genre. All two-dimensional works must be framed and properly equipped for hanging. Artwork is due Monday, Jan. 5. Artwork can be dropped off at NoVAC’s office, 332 O’Kelly Hall, or NoVAC staff can pick up the artwork at a time that is convenient for you.
Additional information about the “The Grand Picture,” including a call for submissions and information to be included when submitting artwork, can be found at www.novac.org. Any questions can be directed to Danielle at 777-6120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The North Valley Arts Council supports arts and culture for the artists, arts organizations and citizens of Greater Grand Forks.
