Annual Community Arts Project

Friday, June 22nd • 5:30 - 10:00*
*Silent bidding ends at 9:00pm

Our annual fundraiser for our year-round free art classes. We also hope to make it possible for a larger community to purchase original, local artwork through this exhibition. 

There are two ways to donate . . . 

1) Before the event - MAKE ARTWORK: Paradigm Gallery + Studio provides the materials, while you bring your creativity. Everything made will be displayed in the studio and donated to support the gallery. All are welcome. No artistic experience needed.

Even if you haven't taken one of our free arts classes, anyone may bring a 6in x 6in block home and create whatever they'd like on it for the exhibition as well. You may pick up and drop-off blocks during our Tues, Thurs, Sat • 12-6pm open hours.*

Tuesday, June 19th (or before)**

If you have any questions about donating artwork for the event, please email using the subject line "Community Arts Project".

2) The night of the event - PURCHASE ARTWORK: The Post-It Note silent bidding starts at $20 for each piece, the bidding lasts from 5:30 - 9:00pm, then we will start closing out each piece.

*Artwork may also be dropped off after-hours through our front gate, but please wrap your artwork in bubble wrap or similar protective materials if you do this -- We don't want anything to happen to your beautiful artwork!

**If you miss the drop-off deadline, we will still accept the artwork and will keep adding to the wall until we run out of space.
