Holiday Invitational Show & Sale
The Arts Council of Wilson is preparing for our annual Holiday Invitational Art Show and Sale on Thursday, November 12. We are planning a festive opening that will surely be profitable for both the artists and the Arts Council. Last year the Holiday Invitational was one of our most successful visual arts events, and we would like your help making this year’s event even better. We would like to include as many artists as possible – the more, the merrier!
Please consider exhibiting some of your artwork. The focus of this event is to display and sell art work to supplement the continued funding of our Visual Arts mission. The preview reception on November 12 is by invitation only to Arts Council of Wilson contributors. One complimentary ticket will be issued to each non -contributing artist, and additional tickets are available for purchase for $20 at the door.
Please download and review the Exhibition Contract and an Exhibition Inventory Form. Read them over carefully as it will give the logistics for this show. Please note the delivery date. Absolutely no artwork will be accepted after November 4, no exceptions! Please bring your completed Inventory Form which includes your Social Security Number, when you deliver your work. We will not be able to display or sell any artist’s work without this information. Unsold work should be picked up on Friday, December 19, as ACW will be closed for the Christmas holidays December 24, through January 2.
