WYES art auction: call for entries

The 28th annual WYES ART COLLECTION 12 will air June 11-13 and 18-20, 2010.

If you would like to donate any artwork, please download and fill out the auction donor form. Benefits of donating are:
    * Inclusion in the text of the WYES ART COLLECTION 12 catalog which is distributed prior to and during the auction.  Deadline to be in the printed catalog is April 1, 2010.
    * Visibility at the WYES ART COLLECTION 12 Preview which will be held May 16 – 18, 2010 at the WYES studios.
    * Participation in the juried art competition.  An independent judge will choose four local artists to be honored at the Preview.  A short video of each winner will be produced by WYES and will air on WYES throughout the following year.
    * Exposure on WYES-TV, www.wyes.org and New Orleans Magazine for Gallery Board donations.  A Gallery Board is an individual piece of art donated by a gallery valued at $2,000 or more.  Special interest art pieces may receive this promotion as well.

Important Dates:
Catalog deadline   April 1, 2010
Art Preview    May 16 – 18, 2010
Live Auction    June 11-13 and 18-20, 2010

NOTE! Even though the catalog deadline has passed, artists may still submit work, and will be in the Preview which is May 16th from 6-9 pm at the studios - the public is invited and approximately 700 people come to see the art. We accept work all the way up to the auction date which is in June but want to give the artists the most advertising we can give them, hence the early deadline. Bring whatever you have to the station at 916 Navarre Ave.

If you have any questions, please call the Auction Office at 504-483-8487 or e-mail auction@wyes.org.
