About the FUN Art Show:
The FUN Art Show will open the weekend of September 22 & 23, 2018 at McTavish Academy of Art (MAOA), 1720 McTavish Rd. The opening weekend will be a massive event open to the public from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. Artists will take over the space, displaying and selling their work, transforming studios into installation galleries, demonstrating their techniques, and interacting with the community. We’ll run art-making activities for adults and kids, invite musicians, host drop-in yoga, invite food trucks, and run screen-printing drop-ins throughout the weekend. The FUN Art Show will benefit the Art For Everyone Foundation, an organization that supports low-income individuals in accessing arts education.
We aim to make this show as inclusive to all artists as possible. In lieu of display fees or commissions, we ask all accepted artists donate a percentage of their sales to the Art for Everyone Foundation (percentage at the artist’s discretion). We’re all about bridging the gap between artists and audiences, so all accepted artists will also be asked to sign up for a 3.5 hour volunteer shift during the show.
