Interested in being a participating artist in this event for 2021?

This event is possible because generous artists donate their works. With the donation of an original piece of artwork (ready to hang and valued at $200 or more), artists not only help support the Art Museum but they also have the opportunity to network with art collectors and fellow artists as well as to increase exposure for themselves and their artwork on our website and social media outlets and in other promotional material. Donating artists receive free tickets to attend the Collectors’ Event, but this does not include a bid number for a work of art. For this event, we do not accept prints or reproductions.

  • Original artwork (no prints) will be limited to one work per artist and must be delivered on the following dates: Tuesday, December 8 & Wednesday, December 9

Artists who do not email the required forms by October 23 will, unfortunately, not be included.
  • Artwork is to be dropped off on either Tuesday, December 8 between 9am and 1pm or Wednesday, December 9 between 1pm and 5pm. This will allow the Museum’s Curator Liz Miller to start designing the Collectors’ exhibition.
  • All 2D artwork must be framed and ready to hang; gallery wrapped pieces do not require framing.
  • All works must meet the following size requirements: 2D works cannot exceed 48” by 48” and 3.5” in depth (including frame); 3D works cannot exceed 5’ in height, 3’ in width and 2’ in depth.
