Call for Artists! 2011 Friends and Family 20/20 Show

Are you an established artist, developing artist, student artist or future artist?  Then make plans to display your work in the Green Gallery at The Scrap Exchange this summer!

Our annual Friends and Family open-hanging exhibit is coming up and we need YOU to participate. We are adding a 20th anniversary twist to this popular show. All artwork will be for sale for $20 per item, to help us celebrate 20 years as a leading creative reuse center!

Here’s where you come in. Make something cool out of reclaimed materials that you will be happy to price at $20. In fact, make several pieces! Use any medium and any subject matter. The only requirement is that you use reclaimed, reused or repurposed materials in your work. (Also, please keep in mind that our gallery is open to everyone from ages 1 to 101, and we host children's activities daily. So please keep any subject matter appropriate for kids and adults alike.)   This show will include our traditional 60/40 split- the artist receives 60% of any sale and the Scrap Exchange receives 40%. Submit as many pieces as you like, we want to completely fill the gallery with art!

You can come in and hang the work yourself June 14th, 15th, and 16th. We will post exact hanging times at a later date. The show will open Friday June 17th with a big 20th birthday party for the Scrap Exchange from 6-9 pm.

So, it’s time to get busy and start creating art! Call us if you’d like more details at 919-688-6960.

The Friends and Family 20/20 Show will run from June 17 through July 9.
