CALLING ALL ARTISTS TO PARTICIPATE

Artists are sought to create unique artwork to donate to Summit Artspace. The art will be exhibited and auctioned off at the Arts Alive celebration on June 11, 2019.

Summit Artspace’s 10th Arts Alive Awards and Fundraiser celebrates achievements, milestones and contributions to local arts and culture, while honoring individuals and groups that enrich our lives through their participation in the arts and whose achievements are outstanding.

THE SILENT AUCTION NEEDS YOU!

As part of the event, local artists are called to donate artwork for the auction that will take place during the Arts Alive event. All proceeds directly benefit community exhibitions and art programs at Summit Artspace.

This year we are abandoning the “Out- of-the-Box” concept and opening it up to all art forms! We are hoping to revitalize and increase participation in this event by opening it up to a wider variety of styles, mediums and encouraging artists of different backgrounds to contribute.

PROCEEDS BENEFIT GALLERY SHOWS 

The concept is simple—donate your time and talent to create a work of art that will be displayed and sold during the Arts Alive celebration silent auction. All proceeds will directly go to supporting Summit Artspace, which is dedicated to showcasing work by local artists and providing opportunities for the community to experience exceptional local art.

Donor Perks:

  • Art donors will receive a 50% discount on the admission price to Arts Alive 2019; $32.50 reservation!

How to Participate:

This year we are asking that artists include mini artist statements (250-500 character max) for the potential buyers. We are hoping this gives buyers more information about you, your process and your art. You can submit this artist statement directly into the participation commitment form when you fill out the Google Form. We may use the statements during promotions and when advertising all the amazing artists’ work!
