Call to Artists for our 2024 GR8 Works Show

 

CALLING ALL LOCAL ARTISTS
We invite you to be a part of “GR8 Works” by creating an original 8×8 inch artwork to raise funds to support a diverse and accessible art program with a focus on community. The GR8 works can be made by artists of all ages.

 

HOW IT WORKS
We will provide each artist with one 8×8” blank canvas, while supplies last, or you can use your own. Create an original artwork that fires your imagination and creativity and showcases your style. Your artwork will be hung in our gallery from March 5 to April 6, 2024 and will be offered for sale at $88 each. You can choose to split that with West Windsor Arts (50/50), or donate all of the proceeds to our cause.  West Windsor Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) organization. EIN# 03-0494648
