Call For Work
*All mediums/subjects accepted*
The Friends of Danvers Dog Park is planning a fundraiser art auction showcasing the talent of local artists, but we need your help! For our fundraiser to be a success we are asking local artists to donate work of any size, any subject matter, and any medium. However, if your work is HUGE contact use first to make sure we have room to store it.
About the initiative: The Friends of Danvers Dog Park is a group of dog-loving Danvers residents who joined together in 2009 to start the process of establishing an official dog park. In 2010, the Town of Danvers granted the group the approvals needed, and in 2011, the site at Endicott Park was chosen. The main goal of the Friends is to create a fenced-in, off-leash dog park where well-behaved canines can exercise in a clean, safe environment under the watchful eye of their owners.
About the show: The Artful Dogger fundraiser will be held at the Danvers Art Association (DAA), whose vision is “to inspire, educate and enhance the quality of life for the community of Danvers, through the fine arts.” The DAA is located in the former Williams School, a beautifully restored building originally constructed in 1916 and located on Route 62 at 105 Elliot St. The event will be held in the association’s two-room gallery.
Donated work will be available to preview in a dedicated photo album on The Friends of Danvers Dog Park’s Facebook page. A reception with silent auction will take place on April 11th beginning at 7pm. Any donated work that is not auctioned off may be picked up at the end of the night.
The submission deadline is: April 1st. Work may be mailed or delivered during business hours (beginning March 18th) to New England Dog Biscuit Company, 11 Maple St, Danvers, MA 01923. Neither New England Dog Biscuit Company nor the Friends of Danvers Dog Park is responsible for work that is left outside unattended.
Please complete the form on the second page and return it with your work.
