The best things in life are free and fun and hands-on, right? Like the 4th Annual Post Art Fundraiser. You make three pieces of art, stick them in the mail, and in return, you get three new pieces of art for your walls!
As VANL-CARFAC say, “it’s a great excuse to have some fun, get inspired, and share your creations with others! Send your artwork on a journey to three other Post Art participants and receive three original artworks in the mail!”
HOW IT WORKS:
Step 1: E-mail your mailing address and donation amount to Pepa Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org. The suggested minimum donation is $10.00. Pepa will be accepting addresses until Saturday April 30th.
Step 2: Each person is responsible for creating three small, mail-size, original artworks. (More details below.)
Step 3: Each participant will receive an e-mail with three addresses where they will be expected to mail artworks. The artworks must be mailed NO LATER than Monday May 30th. This is so we can ensure everyone receives the work they deserves in a timely manner.
Step 4: Sit back and wait – your part is done! You will receive up to three artworks in the mail from three different artists!
Donation: Donations can be made by email transfer, through Paypal, regular mail or by drop-off to the VANL office. Whatever works best for you! However, please note in your initial email how you would like to donate. Pepa will be replying to messages individually, so if you do not get a reply in a few days please contact her again. All money raised will go to support VANL-CARFAC (www.vanl-carfac.com)
Sizes: 3 1/2″ x 5″ (Standard postcard) and maximum 11″ x 14″. Mailing rates will vary depending on the weight of the work and its destination.
Medium: Be creative. Drawing, painting, printmaking, textile art, photography, sound art, collage, mixed media!
Note: If you do participate in this event please honour the commitment and be sure to mail your three works. This fundraiser is based on a collective act of good faith, and the organizers cannot be held responsible for art that isn’t sent. However, in the case someone does not receive any works, we do have a few participants who will make extra pieces so no one will be left empty handed.
