Call to Artists Plano Texas


Attention Artists: The ArtCentre of Plano has two exciting ART exhibition opportunities coming up that we wanted to share with you.  Thirty by 30 The ArtCentre of Plano will turn Thirty years old this year! We will be celebrating with a REALLY fun birthday party at our new house! As part of the event, we would like local/area artists to create and donate (to the ArtCentre) a work of art that will be sold during the event.

Some details about the Thirty by 30 event: FUN, casual, great bargain ($30 ticket, one free ticket to each artist that donates a work), sliders, beer, frozen wine, did we mention FUN? A great evening!

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: April 30, 2011 (Event) from 5:30 to 8:30
SIZE OF WORK: 30 cm x 30 cm (approximately 12” x 12“)
MEDIUM: All accepted
WORK DUE TO ARTCENTRE: Wk. of April 25 (call if you need to deliver before 10 am or after 5 pm)
INTERESTED IN ENTERING? Email, subject: Thirty by 30

*All works to be donated to ArtCentre of Plano and to be sold for $130 during the event. No labels will be on works while on exhibit…encouraging guests to “buy what they really love!” Artists names/information will be identified upon purchase. All unsold work will be returned to artist.

This summer for our JumpStart for Arts summer program (economically-challenged kids in Plano benefit from FREE arts lessons for a week during the summer) we want to teach the kids about the art of looking/seeing!

Therefore, we invite you to create YOUR creative representation of the new ArtCentre of Plano, also known as the Olney Davis House (Victorian, built in 1890) at 901 18th Street. The subject is the house, and we know that everyone will have a different creative approach on the subject. Any medium and method is encouraged. We want to illustrate to the kids that a single subject can be visually interpreted and represented in many forms.

SIZE OF WORK: No limit. Should be hanging ready or have a stable support system or base.
MEDIUM: All accepted
INTERESTED IN ENTERING? Email, subject: This Old House

*All works to be lent to ArtCentre by artist for THIS OLD HOUSE exhibition, June 30-August 19. If sold, 25% donation to ArtCentre is greatly appreciated. All unsold work will be returned to artist.
