July 7th - August 7th 2018
The Anonymous Art Show Fundraiser showcases art that is submitted anonymously by various members of the community of all ages and skill levels to be featured and sold in a lightly juried exhibition in support of the arts. The show enables the community to support emerging artists and gives the buyer an opportunity to take home an artist’s original work at an affordable price!
Each piece displayed in the show is on a 12”x12”x1.5" canvas and will be sold at $100. 50% of the proceeds go right to the artist, and the remaining 50% stays with the Abbotsford Arts Council to help fund valuable programs like free community events, exhibition space, arts initiatives and much more! Purchased pieces are immediately taken off the wall and given to the purchaser. In its place, a sold tag will reveal the artist’s name. The Abbotsford Arts Council will announce each participating artist on Instagram @abbotsfordartscouncil as their work is sold.
Artist applications are being accepted until July 5th and are available HERE.
