FLASH ART BENEFIT 2022
Exhibition Dates: October 28–November 16, 2022
Viewing Reception: Thursday, November 3, 5:30-7:30 PM
The Mosesian Center for the Arts is excited to bring back Flash Art! But we cannot do it without the generous donations coming from artists, jewelry makers, ceramicists, and creatives who are willing to donate a piece of art for the Flash Art Benefit and Exhibition. If you can donate a piece of artwork in any medium, it will be exhibited and available for sale from October 28–November 16. The funds raised will directly benefit Mosesian Arts classes and exhibitions. We aim to provide high quality art experiences to children and adults alike, as funding for the arts is becoming increasingly limited. The funds will also support our continued commitment to offering outstanding exhibitions and artist talks that are free of charge and open to all.
The Benefit Event
If you’re new to Flash Art (last held at Mosesian Arts in 2016), it’s an exhibition of one hundred works from one hundred artists. For those who wish to purchase art, tickets are $100 until 100 tickets are sold out. If you like what you see, your ticket purchase gives you a guaranteed piece of artwork in a broad range of style, content, medium. Just fill out a preference sheet and the artwork will be matched with a patron by lottery drawing based on the preference selection sheet order.
Why come to the Flash Art Benefit? There will be one hundred pieces of art each priced at only $100. This is a chance to bring home artwork from your favorite artist or discover someone new! It is a wonderful way to start an art collection. Why donate artwork to Flash Art Benefit? Your generous donation will help raise funds that will directly benefit art programs and exhibitions.
