Tired of 2020? Want to bust out and have some art fun? We do too!
LOCA has a fun idea for you, and a new sales opportunity in these quiet times! Plus you will help raise funds for LOCA’s art programs too! LOCA is committed to not only surviving this pandemic, but staying strong and helping artists to thrive.
LOCA is launching For The Love Of Art, an online auction to be held January 28 to January 30, 2021. This unique online auction will help support LOCA and YOU, our beloved artists. LOCA will be dividing half of the gross receipts equally among all participating artists, and keeping half to further our programs supporting professional artists, teaching art to people of all ages and abilities, and nurturing the love of fine art and craft.
Your artwork may be in any medium and the subject matter is entirely up to you. Jewelry, tiles, glass and wearables are encouraged, as the auction is perfectly timed for Valentines Day shopping! Your work must fit within a padded envelope that holds items up to 9” x 12”. For more fun, offer more than one piece for auction!
There is no entry fee, and LOCA will foot the cost of the auction, and any postage necessary get your piece to the person who won it with the highest bid.
Your Participation will require the following:
- Click on the “I’m in” button below.
- Please write “I’m in” on the email to confirm your participation then send the email
- All artwork must be original (no reproductions) and must be made by you.
- Your piece must fit within the padded envelope you will receive with your artist’s packet.
- Request multiple envelopes if you intend to send more than 1 piece for auction.
Once we receive the message that “you’re in” you will receive detailed artist’s instructions in your artists’ packet.
Friday, January 8, 2021
Deadline for receiving your artwork and completed packet. But, the earlier you get your piece in to us the more it will appear in our publicity for the auction, so act fast! Check it off your to-do list and have your work seen more – it’s a win-win!
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, January 28, 29 & 30
The online auction takes place. Bidding will be open and active for all 3 days.
All bidding will begin at $50.00 and will increase in $10.00 increments. Some artists may wish to donate the full sale amount to LOCA. If you would like to help us make up for our canceled “Birthday Bash” fundraiser, please complete the form you will find included in your “artists packet”. A donation tax receipt will be provided to you.
LOCA hopes this auction will bring some fun your way! We know it will provide you with some great publicity and that your work will be shown rubbing shoulders with that of renowned artists. You can make some money and you will be helping perpetuate the programs LOCA has provided for over 25 years, and for that we would like to sincerely thank you for your participation!
