OFF THE WALL: EASY AS 1-2-3
Third Time is Gonna Be the Charm!
Atlanta, GA- For the third year, the DeFoor Centre is going to host the OFF THE WALL show, this time it’s going to be three rooms, three prices and guess what- it will be a longer showing! Starting Friday, Oct 23rd with an opening reception and the work will stay up til Nov 3rd that’s 12 days! So what’s the scoop?
This year all the main three galleries will be open for artists to show their work off for three different prices. The Rhombus Room, the smallest, will be open for artists to sell a piece for $100, The Gatsby Room, will be open for $200, and The Forum, the big daddy, will be open for larger pieces and sell for $300! This will widen your chances of selling your work. And guess what else? You can choose what room you want or you can use all three or just one. I will though, have to approve the work for the Forum, due to the nature of the room, which is used for the centre’s events and gatherings.
The idea came to art director, Jill Kettles, while driving to the grocery store day after the 200 show, “I was thinking what could I do to make it better, easier, and bigger!? It needs to be better for the artists, easier for the buyers, and bigger so that the public will want to come.” Again, there is no entry fee or application fee. We will ask for the work, to stay up for the week, even if you sell. If you are a jeweler or small ceramics, we will place them in cabinets for display and safe keeping. The work will need to be in by that Friday Oct 23rd AM. I will again, ask folks to make display cards, bring their stands, and have it ready to come- OFF THE WALL!
So, watch for all the sites-myspace.com, meetup.com, linkedin.com, defoorcentre.com, meetups.com and scribblesstudios.com and my blog, for bulletins and more announcements!
If you were apart of it this, the last two times, I really urge you to be apart again. Pass it around to your fellow artists. If you are new to this, don’t be scared, this is so easy and fun… it’s as easy, as well, 1-2-3!
