Participating artists will be included in the 2006 Art in a Box-Holiday Benefit Art Exhibition for AIDS Orphans and Children at Risk at the newly renovated Cheryl Pelavin Fine Arts and are invited to join friends and collectors at a festive Holiday Season Party on opening night. The exhibition will be listed in Gallery Guide and other publications, and will be posted on the gallery website and the Art in a Box website. As donors to Art in a Box, artists receive the satisfaction of helping AIDS orphans and street children through the life-affirming gift of art.
And of course, contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Proceeds from the exhibition will benefit Art in a Box, a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization that partners with people in communities around the world to help people who are facing crisis situations due to war, public health emergencies, natural disasters, or that are disadvantaged by poverty and to assist in recovery and empowerment through art and art education.
Art in a Box delivers art supplies in a portable box to communities on site. Each box contains art supplies designed to sustain an ongoing art program and can be utilized almost anywhere. Art in a Box has conducted art education programs in Southeast Asia, Central America and the Pacific, and has plans to offer programs in Africa. Currently our programs include art for AIDS orphans and street children in Cambodia and Thailand, a silk training program for the deaf in Cambodia and a Mentoring Program in the Marshall Islands to help young artists gain advanced training.
GUIDELINES Artists may donate artwork in all media, including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, mixed media or wall-moutable sculpture. Artwork must be 6” x 8” or smaller. All artwork will sell for $65. All proceeds of the exhibition will benefit Art in a Box.
