Square art by 150 Oklahoma artists shapes the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s 12x12 Art Fundraiser on September 20. The fundraiser raises funds for the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC) to help artists throughout Oklahoma to realize their potential.
For 12x12, each artist creates a work sized twelve-by-twelve inches. The artwork is sold in a surprising silent and blind auction, meaning bidders will not know what others have bid. Bids for each piece begin at $175. Collectors who fear losing a piece of art in the auction may “Buy It Now” to trump the auction. Additionally, attendees can purchase $5 chances to win prize packages.
In addition to the art, 12x12 attendees enjoy a taste of the city with hors d’oeuvres and sweets provided by 33 popular local restaurants. Dress is evening casual and drinks are served from a cash bar.
Tickets to the 12x12 Art Fundraiser are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. They are available by phone at 405-879-2400, online at www.12x12okc.org, or at ticket outlets: Blue Seven, Full Circle Bookstore, New Leaf Florist, Guestroom Records (Norman & OKC) and Café Evoke (Edmond).
