Show your art in Works’ first ever (anti)Valentine Exhibition and Auction!

Show your love for Works, your community art and performance center, by placing your art in our Valentine event opening First Friday February 5.

Also–attend the “My Bloody Valentine” dance at Works/San Jose on Saturday February 13, 2010 at 8pm! $5 dollar donation at the door!

How it Works:

We ask that artwork be accessible in size and price: please keep art within 12×12 inches for wall pieces or a 12×12 inch footprint for sculptural work. All work should be ready to hang or stand. Multiple pieces are acceptable.

Themes: What inspires you about Valentine’s Day: hearts and flowers, broken hearts and dead flowers? Works wants to show a full range of feelings about Valentine’s Day.

All artwork will be available for bid at the silent auction at a starting bid of 20 dollars with minimum bid increments of 5 dollars. Bidders who want to buy a piece outright must meet the “Buy It Now” (retail) price set by the artist—recommended between $50 and $300. Artists can elect to receive up to 50 percent of the purchase price or can donate all proceeds to Works. Artists whose artwork generates proceeds for Works at or above the basic membership price of $35 will be rewarded with a complimentary membership.
