Our hearts went out to the people of Haiti when the 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit. They need our help, so Jerry’s Artarama is sponsoring an art auction on April 10, 2010. The Raleigh Convention Center has donated a 5,500 sq ft room and Centerplate is catering the event. There will be art collectors and corporate sponsors in attendance and our goal is to raise $50,000. All proceeds from ticket and art sales will go to Habitat International’s efforts to rebuild Haiti.
Artist donations are the key to this event’s success. There will be both a live and a silent auction. To be considered for the live auction, work must be received by March 20, 2010. Live auction work should be no smaller than 20″x30″ and should not exceed 72″ in any direction. Live auction work is required to be framed (if necessary), prewired, and ready to hang. Wet paintings will not be accepted. We recommend that you submit big, bold, eye-catching work!
The deadline for silent auction submissions is March 28, 2010. Silent auction work is usually smaller (no larger than 20×30). Pieces must be 2D and have no moving parts. Wet paintings will not be accepted and we suggest (but do not require) that work be prewired and ready to hang. All unframed works on paper will be displayed with clips.
Please be sure to include your name, title of the work, medium, regular selling price, your web address, and business cards (optional). If you are submitting for the live auction, please include a short artist statement (no more than 100 words). The live auction will be juried and the selected 30 pieces will be featured in our program with a color image, info, and artist statement. After the auction, we will send you a thank you letter and receipt for tax purposes.
Thank you so much for your consideration. Please read more about the event on our website www.jerrysartarama.com/community/Art-Auction-and-Gala Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
