The Dennos Museum Center offers art patrons an opportunity to purchase original works of art by talented artists in the region at the museum’s annual Small Works art sale.
Artists have been invited to submit up to 10 works of art in any media with measurements no greater than 5” x 7” x 5”. All art work is priced at $50 or less. The size restrictions have changed this year to allow for more small pottery and sculptures.
New this year is a silent auction of mini canvas pins which artists will paint and donate to the museum to raise funds for the Dennos Education Tour Fund. The pins are 2” X 2” or 1” X 2” and two will be given to any interested artist. Contact the Museum Store, 231-995-1587 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Small Works Sale has been organized to benefit artists and provide art patrons the opportunity to acquire works by artists in a price range accessible to many collectors.
There is no application fee or jury process for the sale. If the work of art meets the size and price parameters it will be allowed in the sale.
The Museum’s goal for the sale is to provide artists with additional sales opportunities and encourage patrons to buy original art at an affordable price. Last year 80 artists brought in about 800 works to sell. The sale was a great success with over $7,500 in gross sales.
