Open Call - "Art for Mental Health" Charity Exhibit, Sale and Auction

MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery presented by Kirschner Family Corporation is organizing its annual charity exhibit, sale and auction. This year we would like to benefit the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Wood Buffalo. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of each artwork will go to CMHA Wood Buffalo and half to the artist. Artists will also have the option of donating 100% of the value of their work to CMHA Wood Buffalo.

The Exhibit:
Artwork will be displayed at the MacDonald Island Community Art Gallery from Dec 4, 2012 to December 20, 2012. The Exhibit Opening will feature two guest speakers and silent auction of approximately 10 selected artworks. The official Exhibit Opening will be held at the Art Gallery on December 13, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.

Silent Auction:
The 10 artworks for silent auction will be chosen by a non-exhibiting jury. Each piece will have a minimum bid price of one third of the total value.

Visual artists from the Wood Buffalo region are invited to submit no more than two original artworks for the exhibition. All mediums are welcome. All pieces must be framed; stretched canvas is acceptable if the sides are painted or have a clean finish. All artwork must be ready to hang with a tight wire (at one third to the top of the artwork).

Please submit a digital photo of your piece/pieces along with your name, contact information, title of the piece, the size of the piece(including frame), the medium used, price and whether you would like to donate 100% or 50% of the proceeds by November 24, 2012, to anamaria.mendez@macdonaldisland.ca.
