CALLING ALL ARTISTS TO DONATE WORK TO BIG DEAL
Visual Aid needs your help in gathering donations for BIG DEAL, our much-anticipated annual exhibition/art sale that benefits artists living with life-threatening illnesses. Please invite your artist friends to donate artwork for the event, which will take place on Saturday, November 13, 2004 at SOMArts Gallery (934 Brannan between 8th and 9th Streets).
At BIG DEAL, 650 works of art are offered in a unique manner - on a first-come, first-served basis at a fixed price of $110 plus tax. BIG DEAL is an especially exciting art sale as it features a high quality of artwork at such reasonable cost. Each year huge numbers of art lovers show up hours before the event - queuing up outside of SOMArt to ensure an early space in line!
Each artist receives free admission to the party - an exciting, high-energy event. Besides hundreds of fabulous works of art, there will be great music, luscious hors d'oeuvres and drinks, and over 500 enthusiastic art collectors, buyers, artists and friends.
Donations of artwork by local artists are key to making this event a successful fundraiser. Proceeds from Big Deal will allow Visual Aid artists to produce and exhibit important bodies of paintings, photographs, drawings, prints, and sculpture, with the help of our organization's resources. By providing free art supplies through our Voucher Program and ArtBank, an active Exhibition Program, and other sevices, Visual Aid encourages artists with life-threatening illnesses to continue their creative work. These works of art are a vital record of our time and a legacy for future generations.
Please support our efforts by forwarding this email to other artists! Artists are encouraged to contact us today by emailing Amy Charles at firstname.lastname@example.org
or phoning us at 415-777-8242 to let us know they plan to make a contribution - artists who reply by August 30 will be included on our special invitation, which will be sent to over 4,000 Bay Area art lovers. Prior to the event, we will send out details on the November drop-off dates, times, and locations.
