Ended: Call for Artists: ACOTTI’s first fundraising event!

Artists of music, craft, dance, literature, theatre, media or visual arts are invited to participate in the Arts Council of the Thousand Islands’ inaugural fundraising event: A “CHAIR-ity” AUCTION.

To help raise funds for ACOTTI’s future programming, artists – individually or as a group – will take a “found” chair and re-purpose, recreate, redecorate it into a functional or fanciful “CHAIR-ity” object. Your finished “CHAIR-ity” object will be auctioned off at the live “CHAIR-ity” Auction on Thursday May 18th at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery at the St. Lawrence College, Brockville Campus.

At this time we are reaching out to our artist community in a call for expressions of interest to participate in and/or volunteer at this event.

The number of “CHAIR-ity” objects accepted for the event is limited, therefore registration is on a first-come, first-served basis!

Why Participate?
As a “CHAIR-ity” artist you will”

  • split the final auction price 50/50 with ACOTTI
  • set a suggested minimum bid for your “CHAIR-ity” object
  • have an artist card attached to your “CHAIR-ity” object to recognize your contribution
  • receive 1 free admission to the event
  • receive media coverage of your participation as a “CHAIR-ity” artist
  • have your “CHAIR-ity” object on display at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery and the option to display it elsewhere in the community prior to the auction

If you are interested in participating as an artist OR as a volunteer, please complete this Expression of Interest form and return to ACOTTI by February 15, 2017. Any questions, please email us at [email protected]

We look forward to working with you in this venture!
