Get Your Kicks at 6x6 | Art Sale and Fundraiser
October 1-3, 2021
Get your kicks at 6x6! You'll want to get hip to this tip, SAVE THE DATE, October 1–3, for this art sale and fundraiser put on by the Art Alliance of the Riverside Art Museum, famous for past events like Off the Wall, Art Bark in the Park, the Riverside Art Market, and many other fun, art-related FUNdraisers.
Make an Inland Empire trip to buy 6 by 6 inch original artwork in a variety of mediums by artists from throughout Southern California, all for sale at $100 each. The artists will receive 50% of the sales price for each of their pieces that sell, so the art museum won't be the only beneficiaries of your generous participation during the art sale!
Stay tuned as we roll out sponsorship opportunities, artist submission guidelines, and Opening Gala ticket sales later this summer!
FYI, we're also teaming up with local schools for a separate but related art contest and exhibition (no sales) in conjunction with this event. We'll hold a celebration to announce the award winners during the 6x6 weekend, so stay tuned for more info on that, as well!
RIVERSIDE ART MARKET
SAVE THE DATE 2022
First, the Art Alliance and the Riverside Art Museum wish to thank you for your patience and loyalty throughout the last year. Art Market 2020 was to be a spectacular event and we sold out of vendor spaces within a few days.
When we originally postponed Art Market 2020 to September 26 due to the pandemic, we believed we would be safe. However, we heard from the City of Riverside last week that they are unable to move forward with permitting outdoor events until the City and the County move to Stage 4 of reopening from COVID-19 restrictions. This is not anticipated by September. Given this uncertainty, and our desire to properly promote the Art Market well in advance, we have made the difficult decision to forgo our 2020 event and focus our enthusiasm to plan an outstanding Art Market for 2022.
We would like to thank all of our vendors and sponsors for their support throughout all this. If you have not yet received the email/letter we sent out to you with your options, please email or call Kathy Bocian at (951) 206-0928. More
