2021 “ALICE’S ANGELS” SILENT ART AUCTION
CALL TO ARTISTS
We are putting a call out to all of our great artists and friends of the art-a-fair foundation.
We need you to be part of our auction to support NINE GIRLS ASK – a non-profit organization working for a cure for ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer affects over 100,000 women each year. Your art donation will help raise funds to fight this deadly disease.
The auction is dedicated to the memory of Alice Hernandez-Gaona. A friend, foundation board member and long-time supporter of NINE GIRLS ASK. Alice often painted angels during her fight against ovarian cancer and we have named this auction in her honor.
We are asking for a donation of your great art pieces
2d and 3d donations are welcome.
This auction will run between May 1 through May 15th.
We ask you please submit your art no later than April 15th to allow us time to get the work framed and ready for auction.
As a thank you each artist that donates a piece of art will receive a high-resolution scan of their artwork so they may share their work and make reproductions.
We will also promote your website or other social media during the auction and on your auction page. We will also enclose your business card when the artwork mails out so the winning bidder can see more of your work.
To join us, please mail or drop off an original piece of art (no framing necessary).
Include your name, the name of the artwork, and the medium along with your business card to:
Art-A-Fair Foundation c/o Framing Artistry
10005 Muirlands Blvd., Unit C
Irvine, CA 92618
We are open Monday thru Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
