Our 2nd annual Art-a-thon is scheduled for Saturday, February 21, 2015. It is a fundraiser to support our Youth Art Month exhibitions in March, including the 12th year of Young at Art K-8 and Higher Forms of Art, our annual high school art show now in its 8th year. This exciting event will take place on Saturday, February 21st from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the same day as Hallowell’s Mardi Gras celebration.
Each participating artist will be sponsored by her/his own group of donors and will commit to spending the day making art at the gallery alongside other artists who have also enlisted pledges. Space is limited to 20 artists.
Make art, meet other artists, and raise money for the non-profit Harlow Gallery—what could be better?!
In a nutshell, the Art-a-Thon works like this:
- Artists receive a donor form
- Artists sign up donors and collect funds
- Artists bring the donations to the gallery on Sat., Feb. 21st and make art from 10-4.
- The money raised will be used to support this Young at Art (K-8 student art exhibit) and Higher Forms of Art (High school exhibit) in March.
Everyone who participated last year had tremendous fun! Seeing each others’ work in progress, talking, eating, and sharing ideas made it a wonderful day.
Please call or email us at the Harlow Gallery for a donation form and more details – 207-622-3813 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
