November 18 – December 1, 2019 Sacramento Fine Arts Center presents Ars Gratia Artis, its 25th annual Fundraiser, Showcase Exhibit and ART RAFFLE WHERE EVERYBODY WINS, November 19 through December 1, 2019 with a fun show-closing reception.
Your donation of original artwork will make this event a huge success! The Sacramento Fine Arts Center will recognize and award three of the most awesome and popular participating artists. Awards will be given in three categories: “Best of Show” “Fabulous” “People’s Choice” Each artist is asked to give their best original work, with a minimum value of $175.00. To thank, recognize and promote the artist, the Arts Center asks you to please submit at least one Biography or Artist’s Statement per work donated.
The Art Center will promote the contributing artists with an online gallery show. In the gallery, the Artist’s Statement will be prominently placed next to the artwork, if an artist donates more than one piece, they will be displayed together. This exhibit is to highlight the contributing artist’s work, their talent, who they are, and to give art collectors the opportunity to meet them. The Arts Center will mail special invitations to past and prospective art collectors throughout our metropolitan area.
All artwork will be juried for entry into the show. The reception starts Sunday, December 1 at 2 PM. You are invited to enjoy beautiful art, wine, cheese, appetizers, and meet our amazing and award-winning Artists. Tickets for this event are $100.00 each.
