We cordially invite you to participate in an exhibition with the Flagstaff Arts Council, the 10×10 Benefit Exhibition & Sale. Along with 100 other artists from Flagstaff, you have been selected to show your art in this exciting invitational exhibition.

This benefit art exhibit and sale is a fundraiser to support art exhibitions at the Coconino Center for the Arts. We continue to bring excellent programming and strong regional & national exhibitions to your community art center, creating opportunities for local artists on a regular basis. By donating an original work of art to the 10×10 Benefit, you will help to keep the Coconino Center for the Arts thriving. It is art for art’s sake.

Participating artists are asked to create an original work of art, keeping within the 10×10 dimension guidelines (see below). The completed pieces will then be sold at the 10×10 Benefit sale on Fri., Jan. 16 and Sat., Jan. 17, 2015. All proceeds from the sales of the artwork will support the Flagstaff Art Council’s exhibitions and educational programs at the Coconino Center for the Arts.

Artists may create works in the scopeof their current body of work, or take a risk and create a completely new and unexpected piece. The only restrictions are that the work must fit within the size guidelines and be an original work. Have fun with it!
