Old News…. just so you know what we have done, and will do again!

Autism Rocks Festival of Art For All – 2020!

This event was a great success in 2019 (see photos and video here) so we and our community partners are doing it again. 
“By breaking down these barriers and allowing all kinds of people to gather together, laugh together, and express themselves together, it forms a positive and accepting space where these differences no longer define us.” This is what KindTree – Autism Rocks is all about!!

This event will feature art by members of our Autism Rocks Artists Guild, and artists from Bridgeway House, Allies, 4J students and OSLP. We will be emptying our warehouse of art submitted over the last 10 years in a “Make a Reasonable Offer” bin – you pick the price!

Dear Artists,

KindTree is now accepting submissions of artwork to be considered for the 2022 Festival of Art for All.

The submission deadline is February 28, 2022.
Submission Form is HERE.

This is an opportunity for artists on the autism spectrum to be recognized for their artwork, have fun, and even make money if the artwork sells. Visual arts make up an important part of the festival. There will also be live performance art occurring at the event.

A few rules:

Artists must be on the autism spectrum.

We accept creations in painting, drawing, photography, and other media.

Submitting artwork gives KindTree permission to market the artwork and its reprints for exhibitions, online and in other venues.

There is limited space for displaying art, and although volunteers will try to show every piece of work, some may not be shown. Artists will be notified if their work will be on display at the festival.

If an artist’s work is sold, the artist will be paid 90% of the sales price.

Framed pieces must be in attractive, durable frames with hanging wire on the back. Canvases without frames may sell more easily if there is hanging wire on the back.

Pieces that do not sell can remain in our collection for future exhibits, or will need to be picked up no later than May 9, 2022. Please email Angela Phinney to arrange pick-up:  APhinney@kindtree.org
