12x12 Fundraiser Friday, May 12, 2017 at Sedona Arts Center – Doors open at 5:30

Sedona Arts Center Announces the 12 x 12 Project and Fundraiser

Over 100 Artists Contributing to our Annual Event for Local Art Lovers

What do you get when you invite hundreds of extraordinary artists to create new works within a 12-inch space, and exhibit everything in support of Sedona’s hometown cultural organization? Sedona Arts Center has the answer in its Annual 12x12 Fundraiser, scheduled for Friday, May 12 in the historic Art Barn.

The 12 x 12 Fundraiser invites artists and visual communicators from all over to create and donate a 12 by 12 inch work, which will be shown and offered at the event for $250—with proceeds going to support Sedona Arts Center’s programs and operations. Art lovers will find painting, photography, fiber, ceramic, and even sculptural works.

"This event is a fun way to support our valuable arts education programs and community arts outreach projects," said Debbie Winslow, the Arts Center’s Operations manager. "As far as fundraisers go, it is the opposite of boring—made possible by and filled with wonderful creative people who care about our mission and our role in the community."

Enjoy an Artist’s Salon in the Art Barn Theatre, where attendees and art buyers can meet the artists, and view or buy their larger works. To extend the Artist’s Salon, the exhibition will be open to the public throughout the 12x12 weekend..

"Besides supporting our nonprofit organization, this project really is about promoting great artists and connecting them with the community," said Winslow. "The format challenged them to communicate visually in a new way, and results in wonderful one foot square visual statements."

The 12 x 12 Fundraiser is free and open to all. The event begins at 5:30pm.

Sedona Arts Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the creative life of Sedona. Ongoing programming includes a Fine Art Gallery that exhibits the work of over 100 local artists, over 200 arts education activities and workshops throughout the year, cultural celebrations and festivals, and creative community partnerships.
