Please join me and the 10 x 8 artist group for our 19th annual 10 x 8 small works exhibit and sale, one day only, Saturday, December 8th, Emlen Hall, the Bay School, Blue Hill, ME. 9:30 am preview Sale from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. All works one price- 150.00 Live music and refreshments.
The 10 x 8 annual art show/sale started nineteen years ago as a three-day event in Ellsworth, Maine, at a venue called Frankie’s and was inspired by a similar 10 x 10 art show in Portland, Maine which offered affordably priced art before the holidays.
From that original 10 x 8 three-day event, the sale’s basic premise, 10 pieces by 8 artists, 10″ x 8″, features artwork within reach for local audiences, and has remained the same with few differences. It is now a one day sale/exhibit, with the size varying up to 100 square inches. At the designated “start” time, (9:30 preview, 10:00 sale) work is sold “first come, first serve.” With two of the eight original members participating, the artist run 10 x 8 group has welcomed an array of artists, currently including painters Louise Bourne, Heidi Daub, Rebecca McCall, Gail Page, Annie Poole, Cynthia Winings, with ceramics by Melissa Greene, and diminutive bronzes by Goody-B Wiseman.
With the group spanning generations, several are gallery owners, as well as others running their own studio galleries. A uniting bond is a commitment to their professional art practice, providing a commonality that is refreshing and rewarding. Creating a fresh new series for the 10 x 8 show, all the artists exhibit nationally and internationally in galleries and public spaces, and have been recipients of fellowships and residencies.
Hope to see you at the show Saturday, December 8th!
