12×12 Art Fundraiser
50 Penn Place #102
1900 Northwest Expy, Oklahoma City, OK 73118
Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC) is hosting its 12×12 Art Fundraiser on September 29, 2017 at 50 Penn Place. Sponsor Preview Hour will begin at 6:00 pm, the event opens to the public at 7:00 pm and bids close at 9:30 pm. The fundraiser fuses 175 of Oklahoma’s finest artists with local restaurants and live music to create a memorable one-night-only event.
For 12×12, each artist must create a work that conforms to the dimensions of twelve-by-twelve inches. Artists are selected by a volunteer. As it is OVAC’s only annual fundraiser, the selection process is highly competitive. The 12×12 committee strives to represent a wide variety of artists statewide in this exhibition, keeping in tune with OVAC’s mission. The artwork is sold in a surprising silent and blind auction, meaning bidders will not know what others have bid. Bids for each piece begin at $175. Collectors who fear to lose a piece of art in the auction may “Buy It Now” to trump the auction. Attendees may also purchase $5 chances to win prize packages!
Featuring 175 artists in painting, sculpture, photography, jewelry, ceramics, and more.
Live, low-key music throughout the night from local acts.
A taste of the town with hors d’oeuvres from 25 OKC restaurants. Cash bar.
Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.12x12OKC.org or call (405) 879-2400.
