Call For Art - Charity Art Gala

Vision Idea Design is inviting artwork submissions for its Charity Art Gala for MK9s Service Dogs. The event will be held on May 22, 2019 at the Fairfax American Legion. All submissions will be reviewed and selected artists will be invited to participate with between one and five artworks. Proceeds from the sale are split with the artist and the charity, with the artist deciding on the percentage donated. There is no fee to submit your work.

The Charity Art Gala raises money for non-profit and volunteer organizations. This is a red-dot event, not a silent auction. Exhibiting artists are provided two complimentary tickets to attend the event, which includes cocktails, delicious food, and live music.

We welcome submissions from artists within the Fairfax region.

All forms of painting, drawing, photography, collage, printmaking (analog and digital), sculpture, and three-dimensional multiples are eligible. *No jewelry, crafts, video or sound art will be accepted at this time
Artists may submit up to five (5) works
All 2-D artwork submissions on paper, if accepted, must be framed and ready to hang with wiring in good condition (No saw- tooth hangers)
