Join us for the 8th Annual Mosaic Art Salon and Auction! Any SAMA conference attendee can display their work for everyone to enjoy and even purchase. Tables will be set up in the Salon area to display the art all day on Friday. Later in the evening, during the Auction, all attendees and guests may browse the salon and register a written bid on any piece they wish to purchase. At approximately 8:30pm, bidding will close, and each work for sale will go to the highest bidder. The payment transaction is then handled on the spot between the artist and the buyer, and the buyer takes the work home.
Highlights for this year’s Salon:
- Salon works will be on display during the Friday preview (note: viewing only, no bidding).
- Entry deadline: March 1, 2015
- Size guidelines: Maximum size (INCLUDING FRAME) for your work is 20”h x 15”w (x 15”d for 3D works). Works larger than this will NOT be allowed or exhibited.
- You must ADD the Salon Artist Fee onto your conference registration to participate. A portion of each artist’s exhibition space fee of $35 goes to the Robin Brett Mosaic Scholarship fund.
This is a non-juried event and any attendee can exhibit however SPACE IS LIMITED! If you want to exhibit, you must purchase a Salon exhibition space during the Conference Registration process, follow the art-work size rules and meet the entry deadline. Your mosaic does not have to be for sale to be shown in the Salon. Conference attendees do not need to purchase an exhibition space to attend this exciting and highly-anticipated event. Check here for updates. You will be emailed further instructions after you register from the Mosaic Art Salon Coordinator, Sharon Ritz and you can reach her at Salon@americanmosaics.org.
Again, this year you have the opportunity to donate the proceeds for a SOLD artwork in the Salon to SAMA. Special tent cards will designate which pieces’ proceeds are being donated. This is a great way to help support our organization while getting a chance to exhibit your work.
Contact us at Salon@americanmosaics.org if you have any questions.
