What is the 50/50 Art Draw? The 50/50 Art Draw is the main fundraising activity for the evening. We ask participating artists to submit works of art valued at $100. Draw Ticket holders will choose a work of art when their number is drawn. All profits from the draw will be shared equally between the Artist and Artspace. In addition, artists will receive a charitable donation receipt.

Fire Sale Finale: For 40 minutes after the conclusion of the Art Draw, works in the Fire Sale will be available for the price of $80. Works that aren’t picked up during round one of the fire sale will then be offered in another round for the final price of $60. The Fire Sale is a last-chance opportunity to sell unsold pieces, please note that the Fire Sale is optional. Profits will be split between the artist and Artspace.

Count Me In! If you’re interested in taking part, bring in your work and we’ll find the perfect spot for it. Contributing artists receive a complimentary party ticket to the 50/50 event.

Works for the 50/50 should be delivered to Artspace by April 29, 2017. All works must be ready to hang, with the artist’s name and title on the back of the work. There will be a Public Preview of the work beginning Friday, April 28 from 3-5pm. Works will then be on display until the May 6th event.
