Call for Art
The VVCC will be hosting a silent art auction at the 12/15 Holiday Party in Cottonwood. We are putting a call out to our member artists who would like to participate. Depending on the response and size of pieces, we will try to accommodate as many pieces as possible. Artists may submit multiple pieces.
Who: This invitation to participate is open to all active members of the VVCC.
What: A Silent auction where art pieces will be sold. Artists will garner 65% of sales, 35% will go to support the mission of the VVCC. Paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculpture, photography, fiber art, mixed media-all are welcome. We are unable to hang paintings on the wall so, if you are bringing a painting, you must supply an easel for display. If you cannot secure an easel, contact Mike Coyne.
When: The Holiday Party Friday 12/15 at the Cottonwood Community Clubhouse. Art should be delivered to the Clubhouse between 11 am and 1 pm Friday 12/15. Arrangements must be made by the artists for unsold pieces to be taken home following the auction that evening. (We are unable to store pieces for a pick up later).
Where: Cottonwood Community Clubhouse 805 N Main St., Cottonwood
