Calling all artists – 6×6 Auction “Song Titles”


It’s back – this year with a theme, “Song Titles”! The 6×6 Auction is a fun community art exhibition and silent auction fundraiser. Everyone in the community, from beginner artists to experts and everyone in between, is invited to take part – simply create a 6”x6”-sized work of art inspired by a song title, using any art medium or style.

All the artwork will be exhibited in the Gallery for four days, October 21-24, with bidding by silent auction. The auction culminates in a Wine & Cheese Reception on Friday October 24, 7.00pm-9.30pm.

Blank 6″x6″ panels are available now at the Gallery for just $3, or you can make your own out of any material.

Deadline for submission of artwork: Wednesday October 15, 2014

This event is one of the Gallery’s most important fundraisers, with all proceeds from the silent auction going towards the ongoing costs of providing free exhibitions and low-cost workshops, art classes and kids’ programs.

1. The finished artwork must measure 6″x6″ and be ready to hang (we can hang cradle panels directly from the frame but everything else should have hanging wire or hooks installed)
2. It must be signed on the BACK only – the auction is anonymous, this adds fun and intrigue for bidders trying to guess the artist! The artist’s identity will only be revealed when the auction has ended.
3. It must have the song title written on the label provided (we will display this with the artwork when we hang the show)

To help people prepare for the 6×6 Auction we will be offering affordable art workshops in a variety of media in September-October… watch out for more details coming soon!
