Art Auction call for submissions

Modern Fuel's 2007 Art Auction Committee invites you to donate your high-quality artwork to the 2007 Auction. All proceeds go directly to Modern Fuel's operating costs ensuring the continued presentation, interpretation, and production of contemporary art in downtown Kingston.

As in previous years, this Art Auction can be of direct benefit to donating artists with a range of donation percentages to choose from - 40% 50% 60% or 100%. We do ask that you consider a full donation whenever possible. Donating artists are also offered complimentary admission to the Gala Event, where they can participate as bidders and meet local art collectors.

This event will feature a silent Auction in addition to the live Auction. Works valued at less than $500 will be considered for the silent auction, works of higher value will be considered for inclusion in the live Auction. Remember that there will be a buying audience at this event interested in fine works, of values in excess of $1,000. You may consider this as an opportunity to develop a profile with these patrons by submitting prominent examples of your work.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline- 26 November 2007
Digital files or slides may be sent by mail or email, and works may also be dropped off at Modern Fuel anytime before 19 November. Please include your completed submission form (available online, and attached to this email), a short bio, and a digital image of each work submitted.
