One 4 One: A License To Buy Art

The Maple Ridge Art Gallery
Maple Ridge, BC Canada
October 25, 2008 to December 6, 2008

Join us for the 1st annual One 4 One juried exhibit and sale. Artist and artisans from all disciplines and media are invited to participate in this exhibit. We are looking for varied submissions of original works in fine art and fine craft, without restriction on size, subject or theme. Works will be displayed salon-style* this coming fall in our main gallery space.

The subtext of the title One 4 One intends to convey that there is “one piece of art for everyone.” With the intent of avoiding elitism and hierarchical values placed on art, we suggest that the value of works submitted to be in the range of $100 to $200 an attainable price range, thereby bridging the gap between artist and patron. Thus giving the public “A License to Buy Art” that is as individual as they are.

The challenge for the artists will be in creating one of a kind works of art that are unique, imaginative and without sacrifice to quality or originality.
