I'm writing to invite you to participate in Durham’s second Pop Up Art Show andfundraiser in honor of The Scrap Exchange, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote creativity, environmental awareness, and community through reuse.
SATURDAY, JUNE 18TH 7PM-10/11 PM
(ARTISTS ARRIVE AT 4-5PM with work)
GENESIS OF THE PROJECT: The Scrap Exchange was forced to move out of their space on Foster St.after city inspectors condemned the Liberty Warehouse building. We want to help with the costs of relocating, and their ongoing capital campaign.Many local artists value The Scrap Exchange; this is an opportunity to give back by exhibiting a piece of art in the show and donating a portion of the sale.
HOW TO ENTER:
Print this email, fill out the consignment form at the bottom and bring it with you to:
Monkey Bottom Arts Collaborative
609 Trent Drive, Durham, NC 27705
between 4-5 pm on Saturday, June 18th
( if that time will not work for you and you want to contribute please contact email@example.com to arrange another date/time)
• You may exhibit only one work of art (if there is enough space available at 7pm, we will try to accommodate a second piece of work by artists who wish to show more than one piece.)
• Artists are responsible for pricing their own work (see consignment form below.)
• Upon receipt we will cut below the dotted line on your form and display the bottom half with your work so patrons know the artist, price, and other basic information.
• NOTE: Artwork should be ready to hang or display. Organizers will have pushpins on hand and reserve the right to select placement of art and hang work. If you have a pedestal for your work please bring it for use if needed.
•The reception/party will be from 7 – 10/11 PM on Saturday, June 18th
Bring Your Own Beverage and Snacks – There will have a table for food and beverages and some paper products will be provided. Come to network, show your work and have a great time in support of community, music and art! Thank you!
We want to let everyone know about the event and about your artwork.
The success of this sudden opportunity depends on getting the word out now: please support the effort by inviting bloggers, curators, collectors, journalists, family, friends and artists you know and others who will want to come and support the event.
There is no insurance for artwork on display and artists are responsible for drop off and pick up of artwork. We will make every effort to handle artwork with care and ensure no damages occur; however artists should participate knowing this is a community event and neither Monkey Bottom Arts Collaborative nor the organizers are responsible for your work. Unsold artwork left after 11 PM on Saturday June 18, 2011 will be left at your own risk and no guarantee can be made for pickup arrangements, although we will do our best to help you get your unsold work back to you.
An attendant will be available and on hand to make art sales. We are asking artists to donate 100%, 50%, or 25% of art sales to The Scrap Exchange. (Organizers and Monkey Bottom Arts Collaborative will not profit from any portion of sales or donations.)
