Cash and Carry

Description:

Stop by the Antler, fill out an entry form, and pick up FREE pre-cut MDF boards, up to three at a time. (They measure roughly 6" x 8", with hangers on the back -- some vertical, some horizontal.) You can paint, build (using the board as the base for your sculpture, say), print, collage, decorate -- whatever moves you. Once you hand in one piece, take another board home with you to work on!

We'll display everything here as a Stairwell Gallery show over the holidays, with hanging on the 22nd of November. Beginning at 6 p.m. on the 28th (Black Friday), anyone wishing to own a piece will make a $25 donation to the Exchange; each buyer will get a number, and in numerical order each buyer will get to choose a piece, take it off the wall, and take it home, right then and there (thus "Cash and Carry") -- and another work will go on the wall to replace it. Artists will receive $20 of every $25, the Exchange the remaining $5.

We encourage artists to make work throughout the duration of "Cash and Carry", thus keeping the show always changing and always fresh. Any unsold work will go back to the artist(s) in January.

Dates:

Artists may pick up boards and drop off work at the Antler during any open hours through December 30th, when the show ends; see our Web site and Facebook page for hours.

November 22nd: Hanging begins.

November 28th, 6-8 p.m.: Reception.

November 28th, 6:10 p.m.: Patrons begin to choose work to take home.

December 30th: Show closes.

The Moose Exchange Stairwell Gallery reserves the right not to display work if deemed inappropriate -- but we trust you not to bring anything too far beyond the fringe!
