ArtSpan's Juried Benefit Art Auction: Call for Entries

ONLINE SUBMISSION: Click here for eligibility, requirements, and online submission form.
DEADLINE: March 11, 2013 (EXTENDED!)
ABOUT THE AUCTION:
ArtSpan's Juried Benefit Art Auction will take place at SOMArts on April 13, 2013. This is our most popular fundraiser of the year; last year over 300 avid art collectors were in attendance! It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your artwork to prominent jurors in the art and design field, new potential collectors, and a vast range of art enthusiasts.
ArtSpan is a small organization with an impressive community of artists, art enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs. It is through the help of involved supporters that ArtSpan can continue to support San Francisco artists and under-served youth. We are asking for your help as an important member of the visual art community through a submission of artwork for the Benefit Art Auction.
Due to the incredible number of pieces submitted for jury in 2012, ArtSpan has enlisted the help of prominent Bay Area art and design experts to jury the 2013 artwork. Up to 120 works will be selected and presented to over 300 avid collectors and arts patrons for bid. Proceeds benefit all of ArtSpan's educational activities for artists, youth and the general public. Accepted artists will receive a complementary ticket to the event, acknowledgement in the 2013 SF Open Studios Guide, and prominent placement on the ArtSpan website as well as event promotions.

ArtSpan, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, builds community by connecting the public to visual arts in San Francisco. Through SF Open Studios, youth and adult education, and art-centric events, ArtSpan creates a platform for artists to thrive, fostering a Bay Area that values the arts.
ArtSpan conducts programs that offer the public, as well as visual artists, opportunities to interact and exchange ideas with those that comprise San Francisco's visual arts community. ArtSpan continues to produce SF Open Studios, the popular and successful event that has been enjoyed by the public for 37 years. In addition, ArtSpan produces programs that focus on arts education for San Francisco's youth and the general public that promote a connectedness within the arts community. Description of programs:
Youth Education / Outreach: ArtSpan believes that visual arts are an integral part of a child's education and works to support the next generation of San Francisco artists. Each year ArtSpan's Art for City Youth provides free arts education to public schools, serving over 800 K-5 students with art classes, guided learning in Visual Thinking Strategies, and interactive tours of the SF Open Studios Exhibition.
Public Education / Outreach: The opportunity for the art-appreciating public to interact with artists is expanded upon throughout the year to strengthen the connections that develop during SF Open Studios. The program offers additional opportunities to visit with artists, view private collections, attend discussion groups, and participate in events at other arts venues.
Artist Education / Outreach: ArtSpan's monthly Professional Development Workshops are designed to aid artists with the professional side of their art practice. Topics include marketing, networking social media, titling and pricing artwork, approaching galleries, writing an effective artist statement, and preparing for SF Open Studios.
