We hope that you will join us again this year! Changes have been made, hoping that these changes have made it more simple, easier for you, and more to your liking.
No auction this year!
In lieu of the auction, we are encouraging artists to sell their paintings in two different venues, donating 25 percent to the Charlotte Garden Club to use in their project for the Mint Museum.
Artist may sell paintings in the garden, limited to sizes 9 x 12 and smaller. With the economy as it is, small and unframed painting seem to be the biggest sellers today. In addition, they are quicker to paint and to haul around so perhaps this is the win-win situation. Please consider this to make more profit for yourself and percentage for the Garden Club. Care must be taken not to block walkways or damage any of the plantings.
Paintings may be displayed and sold outside of the Mint Museum at Randolph, during the party, weather permitting. There will be no paintings displayed inside the museum. The area that we had last year just was not conducive to sales. In case of inclement weather, come inside, enjoy the food and drink, and network with other artists as well as potential customers.
As before, participating artists will be given two tickets to the event.(Garden tour and party)
Please email me back at email@example.com to let me know whether or not you are interested this year. Let me know if you would like to paint two days or one only. If there is a particular day that you can not paint, let me know that as well. I will begin to schedule artists to specific gardens on the 29th of this month...first come basis.
Thank you again for joining us last year, hoping that you will join us again this year...
