INFORMATION FOR ARTISTS

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Amarillo Museum of Art’s 2016 12 x 12 ART EXHIBITION AND SILENT AUCTION. This annual event supports AMoA’s innovative art education programs, and brings the community together to celebrate art and forge friendships.  This one-night event will take place at AMoA on Thursday, October 27, 2016.  If you are new to the exhibition, your entry will be considered for the juried portion.  Please fill out the entry form and send an image of your artwork.

The exhibition will include work from artists that were invited to participate, as well as work juried into the exhibition by the AMoA Alliance 12x12 Committee.  For the juried artworks, anyone who wants to participate must provide a 12 x 12–inch artwork to be juried by the committee. 

If you know of any other artists who would like to participate, please forward this on to them and encourage them to do so.  The gallery spaces limit the number of artworks in the exhibition to approximately 100 with the following targets:

50 works by artists invited to participate based on their sales in previous 12 x 12 exhibitions.

50 artists/artworks selected to participate by an AMoA Alliance 12 x 12 Committee.

The artworks in the exhibition will be sold via silent auction at a starting bid of $120. Fifty percent of the sale price will go toward educational programs at AMoA and fifty percent will go to the artist.  Artists may choose to donate their proceeds back to the Museum.  Please see the rest of this document for more information about participating in this exhibition and silent auction.  You may also call 806-371-5050 or email me, Alex Gregory, at alexgregory@actx.edu if you have any questions about taking part in this event.

The generosity and support shown by artists such as yourself is vital to our museum and greatly appreciated by the Board of Trustees, AMoA Alliance, and AMoA Staff. Your participation will enable us to continue bringing first-class art programming to area schools.
