Are you an artist that would like to have your work considered for entry in the New Creation art auction?
You may submit wall art, pottery, jewelry and other types of art as well. Last year more than 80% of of our art pieces sold!
Artwork is submitted for consideration through a two-step process:
#1. Email a quality digital image of your piece (up to 5 pieces) along with the title to Carrie Brazell at email@example.com. Please submit images in a resolution no greater than 72 ppi.
#2. Go to our online form and enter artist contact information and bio, along with the required information for each piece of art. Be sure to include the same title as is used in your email with your digital image.
You will propose a minimum bid on the online form for each item submitted. We recommend that starting bids be at least 50% below fair market value (the amount it would sell in gallery or online within a reasonable time).
Deadline: Both step 1 and step 2 must be completed by March 31, 2019. All artists will be notified of the Art Selection Committee decision by April 12.
NOTE: The earlier you submit your artwork the better chance you have for your work to be selected AND the sooner it will be featured online ahead of the event.
Items will be sold through our silent auction, which will be available online, this year, to attendees and non-attendees. Additionally, the most exquisite pieces will be selected for entry in this year's exclusive, event-only live auction. In both cases, 40% of the proceeds will be paid to the contributing artists with 60% going to support the ministry of JC Cares. This is a wonderful opportunity for hundreds of individuals to see your work!
Artists are invited to submit up to five (5) pieces for possible inclusion in the show.
This includes, but is not limited to:
wood carving and other wood art
