Artists invited to submit works for upcoming exhibition

Regional artists are invited to submit one piece of artwork for display and sale at the Annual Benefit Dinner set for Feb. 3 at the North Dakota Museum of Art.

Proceeds from the sale of art pieces in the show, titled "This Week Only," will be split 50/50 between the artists and the museum. Artists set their own prices.

An entry fee of $25 is payable before or when the artwork arrives at the museum, said Sarah Bowser, assistant to the director.

The exhibit will be open to the public from Jan. 28 through Feb. 4. Visitors may vote on their selection for the People's Choice Award.

Anyone who wishes to purchase art before the Feb. 3 dinner may do so for 20 percent over list price.

Two-dimensional submitted works must be 16 square feet or smaller—for example, four by four feet, two by six feet, or three by five feet. Sculptures must fit through a seven- by three-foot entrance. For questions about other three-dimensional or non-wall art, contact the museum to discuss special considerations.

The deadline for submitting artwork is 5 p.m. Jan. 24.

The "This Week Only" show is a departure from the museum's usual silent auction at its annual benefit dinner, Bowser said. This event marks only the second time the museum has mounted a non-curated exhibition. The first was held last year.

For more information, including details on mailing artwork to the museum, call Bowser at (701) 777-3846 or email her at sbowser@ndmoa.com.
