Second Annual 6 x 6

We are continuing this exhibition into August and invite artists to continue to donate works to replenish the walls.

We are inviting everyone to donate works to our fundraising exhibition this summer at River Arts.  This exhibition is open to celebrities, students, local artists, international artists, community members, designers, realtors, teachers, bankers, librarians and YOU Everyone is invited to submit original art in any medium.  Last year we had over 250 submissions to this creative effort.  Join us in this fun filled event!

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.

Please, sign work on the back only.  All 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.  Proceeds from the sale of the 6 X 6 submissions help support the other exhibitions at River Arts throughout the year.

Participation is free and open to everyone.

All work is donated to River Arts.

Submissions are accepted from now until August 15, 2019.

Works can be dropped off at the gallery during regular business hours: Tue-Sat 10 to 4 and Sun 11 to 3
