Whats going on over at SPACES?
Well, we are working on a few projects: One is the final ARTMart: SPACES Members Show and Sale. WHAT? WHY? Have no fear we have plans.
It has been a fantastic party where artists have shown off their artwork, meet, talked to the public, networked with other artists, sold some work, and helped SPACES raise money. ARTMart: SPACES Members Show and Sale has been around for over 20 years and little has changed during the life of the event.
In 2011, we plan to replace ARTMart, but not replace what ARTMart does, which is connect artists and the public in a fun, accessible way.
The new format will engage more SPACES members, allow for even more networking,idea sharing, and community engagement.
Change! I hate Change! But Change helps us grow and learn new things about ourselves. What is the new program? Well, that is what we are working on and we need your help! We want to hear from you! We will keep you posted on a member-informed event currently being planned to take place in the upcoming months. We plan to gather the masses, have some fun, and talk about how we can stir things up a little in 2011 while connecting our members, artists and the community.
In the meantime, lets celebrate the SPACES Members Show and Sale with one last big bash! ARTMart opens on April 9, 6:00 -9:00 p.m. (all members can show their work, all members get into the event for free, all others pay $5 admission on opening night) The Show and Sale will be on view April 10 and 11, 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 3 days! Information about the show and how to participate is on our website http://www.spacesgallery.org/2010/events/artmart/index.html.
