A special Christmas exhibition provided by members of North East Artisans
Friday December 6 2019 to Thursday January 9 2020
'$50 Christmas' is an exhibition of affordable artwork by members of the North East Artisans made or selected to meet the Christmas Season’s tradition of giving gifts. Our '$50 Christmas' exhibition provides gift opportunities which will be thoughtful, individual and have high personal and human value. Although the price of the artworks is fixed at a ridiculously low $50 – this is meant as a humorous and ironic gesture – but really - it is NEA's gift to Benalla's Festive Season. We're not making any money here....
The idea of the exhibition is to bring NEA's exhibition space into the commercial domain with a $50 splash opportunity for the Festive Season commercial mayhem period. There is no entry fee (waived) but the 20% commission stands - so the "in hand" artist payment for sold works will be $40. We hope the exhibition will help the Gallery Shop as well....if there's nothing in the exhibition then try the shop....
The exhibition runs from Friday December 6 to Thursday January 9. Works are to be dropped off on Tuesday 3rd December from 10 am to 4 pm and collected on 10 January from 10 am to 4 pm. Further details are available on the attached Conditions and Application form.
We don't expect members to give works away - but if there is oldish stock or an idea for a less labour intensive artwork than usual this is the time to bring it forward
