Updated: Open Call to Artists – Pop Up Auction Show, Deadline: Jul 10

The A Framer’s Touch Pop-Up Show is now an online auction as well as gallery show. The show begins August 1, and the auction will be on Wednesday, Aug 27 through our Facebook page (facebook.com/aframerstouch).

The show is open to all local artists. They can submit up to 2 pieces of original, family-friendly 2D fine art that represents what inspires them about Oregon. There is a $5 fee per artwork submitted, and the gallery will also retain a 5% processing and handling fee for each sold piece. Registration is open NOW and closes on July 10th. Artists can view full submission details and paperwork on our website, http://www.aframerstouch.com/aug-2020-auction.

The physical artwork will be hung in the gallery starting Aug 1st. Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase artwork at a set fee of $100 before the auction. Work that is not pre-sold moves on to the online live auction on the 27th. Bidding for all work will start at $40. Basically, there will be 4 potential sale outcomes for each piece of art:

  1. The artwork will not sell and will be returned to the artist.
    2. The artwork will pre-sell for the set price of $100, minus 5% processing fee.
    3. The artwork will sell at auction for the minimum bid of $40, minus 5% processing fee.
    4. The artwork will sell at auction for an amount greater than $40, minus 5% processing fee.

We hope many artists are excited to submit!
