Calling 2-D and 3-D artists and all other creative people to participate in the Crawford "Pioneer Christmas Festival."
Pioneer Christmas Festival Auction items may be done in any medium you choose and present your artwork to be enjoyed and sold at auction on Nov. 30. Proceeds will benefit the Crawford Town Hall Community Room swamp cooling system project.
Get inspired and render a holiday-themed home décor piece, large or small. All media accepted, including original fine art, fine craft including work in paper, leather, glass, metal, stone, wood, clay, fiber or even culinary, and anything in between. Mixed media welcome, functional or decorative, indoor or out! Sculpture, center pieces, wreaths, jewelry, trees, paintings, baskets, rugs, whatever beautiful thing you can think of to create with a holiday theme.
All pieces must be created by the artist. Please provide appropriate display assembly if needed. Item must be brought to Crawford Town Hall for set up on Nov. 20 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Artist's work will be on display from Nov. 23-30 during the scheduled festival events.
These entries will be viewed during the Arts, Crafts and Gifts show on Nov. 23-24; during the Wine, Cheese & Chocolate night on Nov. 27; on Nov. 29 during the Festive High Noon Tea; and then during the community potluck and auction on Friday, Nov. 30. (The auction will start at approximately 6:30 p.m.).
Entries will have a "no bid minimum" in order to keep the auction process moving forward. Artists (young and old) will be given recognition throughout this event.
Artists can donate 100 percent of the auction proceeds (we would be most grateful), or any percentage down to 50 percent.
Purchases will be payable to Friends of Town Hall, so the portion of the artist's donation is 100 percent tax deductible. Please see a copy of the Auction Entry Application/Rules online at www.crawfordpioneerdays.com.
