Holiday Squares 2022 – Fundraising Exhibition and Sale

Holiday Squares 2022 is a fundraising exhibition and sale to support the Artists Council. Holiday Squares will also be an opportunity for you to have fun and bring your work to new audiences eager to buy original, affordable art as gifts or for themselves.

You can support the Artists Council by submitting your original small works – 8” x 8”, as many as you like – to Holiday Squares 2022. At $100 each, your art will be priced to sell.

The exhibition will be presented in person in the Artists Center from December 1-23, just in time for the holidays.

Please note: Holiday Squares is a fundraiser. The $100 purchase price will go to support the Artists Council. After the show, the Artists Council will retain unsold works for future sales or events. All works may be considered a donation for tax purposes.
