    "The art collector plays a complex role in contemporary art communities. Today, many individuals collect purely for the investment value of a work of art and collecting has, for ages, been a tried and true method for proving one’s cultural capital. The interest and agency of art collectors often influence the careers of working artists and the styles of art that are celebrated and produced. Beyond the financial or cultural gain, the contemporary collector should be aware of her important role within the fabric of artistic communities. how might she make the most of her connections with works of art and artists?"

    "In the world of technology marketing, we are all trying to tell the story.  Not always easy to turn complex notions into interesting stories despite access to the world’s best marketers.  So, turning this on it’s head, it’s equally difficult for artists to tell some of the world’s most interesting and poignant stories – as they lack the marketing expertise and in some cases, the courage – afraid to toot their own horn." - Jackie Ganim-DeFalco

    Hello Artists or Friends of Artists,

     The Brush Art Gallery and Studios is asking artists who have had an affiliation with us to participate in a fun project that will help us raise money for our art scholarship program.

    We are having our 4th annual Four By Four For Education fundraiser for our University of Lowell Art Scholarship Program on April 11.  This fundraiser will feature 150 - 200 little 4"x4" works of original art.  These canvases will be displayed in our gallery beginning March 7 and sold the day of the fundraiser. The money raised from sales will go to the program which awards a scholarship to a deserving student majoring in the visual arts. 

     

    We are asking our affiliated artists if they would like to participate. We will provide you with a 4 inch by 4 inch canvas. We invite you to create whatever you wish with whatever media and materials you like.  If you need to remove the canvas from its frame and replace it with fabric, metal, paper, glass, etc., please do so.  The only restrictions are:

    1. you use the canvas we provide;
    2. the outer dimensions of the finished work not exceed 4 x 4. 

    Because this is a fundraiser, we really regret that we cannot compensate you for your labor, but invite you to attend the fundraiser as our guest.

     

    The deadline for completion of your canvas is Feb 28.

     

    For more details and an on-line registration/canvas request form, please click/go here:
