"Cash & Carry IV"

The Exchange Gallery's fourth annual community-based fundraising exhibition

Once again we'll give away panels for you to make artwork on, every one roughly 7" x 9": You can paint directly onto the panel, glue on a photo, wrap it in knitting, build a sculpture, etc. Last year we gave away about 400 panels; you may take three at a time, and when you bring them back with artwork on them you may take three more, etc., etc., until we run out of panels -- and then you may cut your own about that size and submit artwork on them! ​ We will hang everything that comes in by Saturday the 11th of November for the show's reception, to take place the night of Bloomsburg's Santa parade on Friday the 24th. Anything that comes in after that will go up later in the show, as pieces sell. ​ As with all of its open-call shows, The Exchange encourages participation by artists of all ages and levels of experience, accepting all media, two- and three-dimensional, with the choice of subject for this show entirely up to each artist. ​ NO entry fee. The Exchange Gallery will display EVERY piece that comes in. Every piece sells for $25, with the artist receiving $20 and the Gallery retaining $5 to help keep the lights on. Bring your friends and family to buy your work, supporting you and us! No sales until the reception: Come in ahead of time, though, to choose which piece(s) you would like to take home. ​ At the reception, the first person in line gets to buy ONE piece, as does the second, third, etc. This way, no one gets to "hoard" the "best" pieces. After the reception, anyone can buy any amount at a time. The Exchange will accept artwork at the Gallery from the day we give panels away until the day the show closes: As work sells and gets carried away, we will put new pieces up, so the show always looks fresh throughout its run. ​ The show will run from Monday, the 13th of November, through Friday, the 5th of January, 2018, with the artists' reception on Friday, the 24th of November, from 6 to 8 p.m., simultaneous with Bloomsburg's Santa parade.
