Dear artist friends,
Ladyfest would like to invite you to participate in “Adventures Close to Home: a Feminist Artist Auction and Exhibition” presented by Ladyfest Boston and Snow Project at the Washington Street Art Center. We are inviting local artists of any gender orientation who self identify as feminists to show and auction their work during the month of January at the Washington Street Art Center. We are asking that artists donate one piece to a silent auction and exhibition that will take place throughout January. Profits will go to Ladyfest. Those who support Ladyfest’s cause and wish to become part of a wonderful, supportive community of other creative feminists, please join us!
-Drop off dates for work are Saturday Janurary 7th from 12-5, and Sunday January 8th from 3-8.
-The opening for the show will be on Friday January 13th from 7-11. We will have Ladyfest committee and guest Djs, snacks, beer, and a lot of fun!
We are also planning a screening of “Who Took the Bomp?: Le Tigre on Tour” at the Washington Street Art Center for Sunday January 22nd at 4. With a suggested door donation and free popcorn. The auction will be open to all who attend the screening.
On Saturday January 28th we will be hosting a noise/experimental show showcasing local bands. Again, the auction will be open to all who attend.
Since we are auctioning off the work, we ask that each artist contribute small works that are appropriate and relevant to the event. We reserve the right to reject works if they are deemed inappropriate for the event, but there is no formal jury process and we hope to include everyone who would like to be involved.
At each of these events Ladyfesters will be available with event info and a table showcasing Ladyfest merchandise, and locally made comics, patches, pins, zines, and other crafty stuff for set prices. If you would like to contribute any merchandise for this cause please contact us.
The auction will be a silent one, and each piece will have a “buy it now” price for folks who would like to reserve the piece and close the auction on it. We are asking artists to start with prices set at $15, $30, $50, $75, $100, $150, and $250. Bidding will go in increments of $5 or more, and we will let artists set their own “buy it now” prices. Bidding will take place only in person and we have technology available to allow credit card payments on site.
