Fellow artists and designers
As many of you know sjs gallery is an artist run space and is entirely self-funded….hence we do need some help from time to time to keep spaces like this alive and also to make them better for the community to utilise.
We are holding an art auction in a few weeks and are asking for donations from you or anyone you may know of who has something sitting around they may not want anymore.
We are accepting all mediums really like prints, paintings, jewellery, small sculpture etc etc (if you do donate a print is it possible to have it framed? It doesn’t have to be an amazing frame, just something to make it easy to hang) ….as every cent helps
Venue: sjs gallery, 120 Alexandra Pde, Fitzroy Vic
Date: Friday 14th June
Time: Viewing from 5:30, Auction starts at 6pm
We will be doing as much promo as we can for the artists as well as to get ppl along so we hope the exposure will be of great benefit to all who donate. Our contact list is well over 6000 people in art or arts related industries.
WHAT WE REQUIRE:
A short bio (100 words approx.)
A photo of the artwork donated so we can use it for all promotional material
The price you would normally sell it for
http://www.facebook.com/events/625697444110438 please ‘like’ our page to see what will be on offer, info about the show and for a special invite to the event.
Whenever suits you! We cant collect all artworks so if you can let us know when u can swing by the gallery then that would be amazing! We will work around you, any donation is muchly appreciated!
For any more info or questions please email me
Regards Shabana Jacobson
