River Arts in Damariscotta announces the second annual 6” x 6” fundraising exhibition. This summertime exhibition is open to everyone: students, local artists, international artists, community members, designers, realtors, teachers, bankers, librarians and YOU. Everyone is invited to donate original art in any medium.
River Arts is a not for profit arts organization that relies on donations and membership dues to operate. This fundraiser helps defray the costs of exhibitions held throughout the year. Keeping with the inclusive ideals of River Arts, this show is open to all. The works measuring 6 inches by 6 inches will be sold at the affordable price of $20 each.
All works must be 6” x 6” inches square. If framed, the frame must be within the 6” x 6” measurement. Any medium is accepted. Keep in mind that we will be using push pins to mount the works so they must be light enough to accommodate ease of hanging.
Artists should sign work on the back only. All donated works will be displayed anonymously and sold to the public for $20 to benefit River Arts Gallery. The names of the artists will be revealed when the work is purchased. The opening of this show will be Friday, July 12 from 5-7 p.m.
Participants can deliver up to 6 pieces to River Arts during regular hours through Saturday, July 6. Mailed works can be sent to River Arts, PO Box 1316, Damariscotta, ME 04543.
River Arts is located at 241 Route 1 (north) in Damariscotta. Open hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information call 563-1507.
