RED DOT AUCTION VIII CALL FOR ARTISTS!

Dear Artists and Friends of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity,
Preparations are underway for the Eighth Annual Red Dot Auction benefiting the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, scheduled for Friday, May 11, 2018.
Today we’re writing to ask you to donate a work of art to this year’s Red Dot Auction.  We’re changing up the overall theme from the Life & Times of Chuck Jones to his Golden Age Decade, the 1950s. Any of the over 90 cartoons Chuck Jones directed during the years 1950 – 1959 are fodder for your imagination. A list of the cartoons is available by clicking here.
There will be five categories this year:
  1. Landscape – predominant theme in landscape, seascape, urban-scape; may include cartoon character(s)
  2. Portrait – may be a self-portrait or the portrait of another person or cartoon character
  3. Homage – to an art genre, specific artist, or live action film
  4. Assemblage – collage using unconventional materials-take something and make something new out of it or its parts
  5. 3D – we’ll provide an 8″ 3D “Cre8ive Peeple” (see below) to be painted and enhanced as you envision

There are only 30 spaces available in each of the five different sections, all requests for a specific section will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

To submit your information and section request, click here.

The canvas provided for the first four sections will be a 12″ square and as last year, we ask that you sign the artwork on the reverse.  For the 3D object, please sign the bottom of the object. HOWEVER,  

new this year

 , you may choose to work inany size canvas or other substrate you’d like to provide yourself.

You may prefer to work on paper or another substrate and that’s fine, as long as we can mount it to the 12″ square canvas for presentation the night of the event. The artwork should be signed on the reverse so that bidders at this silent auction will not know who has created which work of art.
 
Won’t you share your gifts with us and with the Center’s suupporters and patrons?  If you will, please fill out the registration form found HERE.
Canvases are due back no later than Monday, March 27, 2018! Again this year we will bring the Red Dot Auction online for pre-bidding only. This online auction will go live mid-April 2018 and end the evening of Tuesday, May 8, 2018 In order to be included in it, your artwork must arrive no later than March 27, 2018.
And again this year a commemorative poster, similar to the one shown, will be printed; 30 canvases will be selected to represent this year’s Red Dot Auction. Two of the posters will be produced and sold the evening of the event. To be considered for inclusion in the commemorative poster, your artwork must arrive no later than March 15, 2018.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, time, and commitment to the vision of the Center.
Exercise Your Genius!
All the best, Robert
