Community Arts Project Exhibition & Five Year Anniversary Celebration

Posted on February 28 2015

Update: This year's Community Arts Project raised enough money for us to hold seven free art classes this year!  That's 2x as many classes than we have ever been able to hold.

Thank you so much for your support, and we can't wait to see you for our upcoming free art classes!

There are two ways to donate...

Make artwork: Paradigm Gallery + Studio provides the materials, while you bring your creativity. Everything made will be displayed in the studio and donated to support the gallery. All are welcome. No artistic experience needed.

Purchase artwork: For this benefit exhibition, we are suggesting a $20+ donation for each piece of artwork purchased. We are offering a pay-what-you-can price range to help make it possible for a larger community to purchase original, local artwork.

February 27th - March 17th

Friday, February 27th • 5:30pm - 10:00pm

Saturday, February 21st*

*If you miss the deadline, your piece will still go up as pieces sell, just possibly not before the opening reception.

Gallery Open Hours:
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays • 12-6pm

About the project and exhibition:

Paradigm's Community Arts Project began three summers ago (Impressively run by our summer interns, Caitlin and Sean!), and the support has been fantastic! We have invited people to join us for free art classes at the gallery. We are inviting anyone that would like to participate in this program to stop by to create work in the space on select Saturdays (listed below) from 12-6pm or take a 6" x 6" woodblock to-go to create work for an exhibition opening this February. Let your imagination run wild for this one - the theme is open for the exhibition.

The goal:
Through this exhibition and benefit, we hope to celebrate and exhibit our community's creativity, further develop and expand our Community Arts Project, and celebrate the past five years at Paradigm!

Additional details:
All artwork is due by February 21, 2015. If you have any questions about donating artwork for the event, please email using the subject line "Community Arts Project".

Please make sure to write your name on or attach it to the back of your piece so we know who to thank. Please also include your email address if you would like to be included in mailings about the event. Artwork may be dropped off after-hours through our front gate, but please wrap your artwork in bubble wrap or similar protective materials if you do this -- We don't want anything to happen to your beautiful artwork!
