Call for Artwork: 171’s Artful Exhibition & Silent Auction

Submit electronically by Sunday, June 19


Submit artwork for 171's Artful Exhibition & Silent Auction
and the 2017 Houghton Gallery Solo Exhibition Award

Visual artists are invited to submit up to three (3) works of art for inclusion in the 2016 Artful Exhibition & Silent Auction on display July 5 – 21, 2016, in 171’s Houghton Gallery. Last year, thirty-five artists participated; fifty-three pieces of artwork were displayed, and $4,998 was contributed to 171 from artists’ sales – a generous and impactful investment in 171!

We need your help again this year and hope to create a worthwhile experience for you as an artist – we understand how much passion you put into your work, and into living a life filled with art.

Benefits of participation:

  • One artist will be selected to receive a solo exhibition in 171’s Houghton Gallery in August 2017 – valued at approximately $3,000, and we hope invaluable to your artistic aspirations.
  • All participating artists will be honored at a reception on Friday, July 8 – a time to celebrate everyone’s artistic journey.
  • The Artful Exhibition will be on view prior to 171’s Artful fundraiser, and artwork will be sold on Thursday, July 21, during the silent auction – artists will receive commission payments by August 31.

Artful is a fun and unique fundraiser. Last year there was a jaw-dropping selection of artwork on view for more than 100 guests who were eager to support local artists. Please consider submitting your most spectacular work, so our guests have a great assortment to choose from as they purchase artwork to add to their collections.
