Calling all Artists!

Artists are invited to participate in a new Falmouth Art Center fundraiser taking place this fall. The Art Center is inviting artists in any medium to create a work of art on an artist palette. The finished palettes will be on display and for sale in the first two weeks of November in the Landrau-Partan Gallery at the Falmouth Art Center.

The fundraiser is limited to the first 50 participants. The Art Center will order 50 wooden artist palettes sizes 12” by 16”. Artists who want to participate would purchase a palette for $12 ($10 for Falmouth Art Center members) and create artwork on it with paint, mixed media, fiber, ceramics, or any other medium.  Since there are a limited number of palettes, feel free to reserve one in advance by adding your name to our list–just call the office at 508-540-3304, send us an email at info@falmouthart.org, or stop by the front window at the Art Center.

you can also reserve your palette and pay in advance through our website here.

Saturday, September 21, from 10am to 2pm we will have the palettes available for pick up by artists and a
Pizza and Palette Creative Meetup. Artists who want to participate are invited to the event and they can start working on their palettes; pick up ideas or just chat with other artists over pizza! Artists who are unable to attend the event can pick up the palettes anytime thereafter.

The finished palettes are due back at the Falmouth Art Center on Tuesday, October 29, to be hung in the Landrau-Partan Gallery. Artists are asked to sign the back of their palette to maintain the mystery of who made each palette.

The Opening Reception for the Artist Palette show is Friday, November 1, from 5 to 7pm.

The finished palettes will be for sale for $100 apiece with 100 percent of the sale going to the Falmouth Art Center to raise funds for the programs of the Art Center. The name of the artist who made each palette will be on the back of the palette, as a surprise for the purchaser.

The unique Artist Palettes will make great holiday gifts, hostess gifts and decorations for the home, patio or pool area!
