ART SCRAMBLE - Calling all artists
Library Art Committee's Annual Fundraiser to benefit Cape Abilities
Artists: Visit the library, sign in, choose two 5 x 7 panels for your artwork (or use your own panels)
Create ORIGINAL artwork - oil, watercolor, encaustic, collage, acrylic, mixed media. DO NOT SIGN THE FRONT - only the BACK!
Return your works to the library by October 26th
ALL ARTISTS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE - you do not have to be from Eastham to participate! HAVE FUN! In November, approximately 300 works will be displayed in the Turner Gallery, culminating in the ART SCRAMBLE. The public will be invited at 5:30 PM on November 24th, the Saturday evening of Thanksgiving weekend, to "scramble" into the library and purchase the paintings of their choice. Each painting will be assigned a number NOT an artist name. Artists will sign only the BACK of the painting creating an interesting "mystery for the purchaser." All paintings will be priced at $75 with all proceeds going to Cape Abilities. More Information
*A Huge thank you to AMPERSAND and to Blick ART Materials for their generous donations*
