Torpedo Factory Art Center: March Madness

Deadline: March 7, 2011 by 6:00 pm (RECEIVE)

March Madness
Torpedo Factory Art Center

Target Gallery
Alexandria, VA
March 12-27, 2011

March Madness is an exhibition of approximately 200 10x10-inch works of art. Torpedo Factory and DC area artists, as well as local high school students and college students will create the artwork. It will be on display in the Target Gallery from March 17 – March 27. All work will be for sale for $100 with 10% of all sales being donated to the March of Dimes. In addition, several of the artworks will be “loaded” with prizes donated by local businesses. The goal of this fundraiser is to raise money and awareness for the March of Dimes, a charity that helps children in need, and to raise money for the Target Gallery’s 2011 outreach programming.

Description: This exhibit is open to ALL artists with the requirement that the work is created on 10x10-inch wood panels provided by the Target Gallery. The $12 entry fee guarantees entry into the exhibit, one wood panel, a chance for jurors’ awards, and free entry with one drink ticket to the Art Party on March 25. There is a limit of 3 entries per artist.

Upon receipt of the $12 entry fee, the gallery will provide the artist with a blank wood panel, 10 x10 inches. The artist will need to pick the panel up at the gallery between 10am to 6pm. Completed artwork must be brought back to the gallery between March 11-14, from 10am to 6pm, to be included in the exhibit. All artwork must be created on the panels provided by the gallery.

Jurors’ Awards & Best of the Rest: Five awards will be given at the Art Party on March 25. Four jurors will each choose their favorite piece. The gallery will award prizes to the winners. The audience at the Art Party will have an opportunity to select their favorite piece to receive a Best of the Rest Award.
