Artwork wanted for charity exhibition

Local artists are encouraged to contribute their artwork to an exhibition and sale supporting the Fort Frances Museum renovation campaign, and the development of exhibition galleries, coming up Oct. 21-22.
“The last time we did this was during the centennial, and that went well,” said museum curator Pam Hawley, adding she also rounded up artists to exhibit at the ManOMin watershed conference this summer.
“[The art exhibit and sale] is a good fit with the museum. We often have exhibitions here,” she noted.
The sale will run on Oct. 21 from 6-9 p.m., and Oct. 22 from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. It will be at the Townshend Theatre cafetorium.
Artists can exhibit and sell their work in three ways. The first option is they can pay a $50 participation fee to book a portion of the general exhibition area. They will be responsible for own set up, which will take place from 4-6 p.m. on Oct. 21. Tables are available.
A second option is they can pay just $10, and have a maximum of three pieces on display for sale. These must be delivered to the Townshend Theatre by 5 p.m. on Oct. 21.
A minimum of 20 percent of sales will go to the museum renovation campaign.
A third option is to simply donate items for sale or auction.
This exhibit will coincide with the Fort Frances Little Theatre’s presentation of “TV through the Ages”—a series of sketches pulled from decades of popular television programming.
