Autism Rocks Festival of Art For All – 2020!
This event was a great success last year (see last year’s 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!!
We are still developing all the details, so save the date and come back soon.
If you are an artist who would like to participate, keep reading…
KindTree is now accepting submissions of artwork to be considered for the 2020 Festival of Art for All.
The submission deadline is April 3, 2020.
Submission Form is HERE.
The exhibit will take place on Saturday, May 2, at Whirled Pies, 199 West 8th Ave, Eugene, from 1:00-5:00pm.
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, 2020. Please call or email Sherie Maddox to arrange pick-up at 360-808-3303 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
