Join me for a fast paced, high energy, art show for a great cause. Every year Art Access hosts the 300 Plates show. It's their annual fundraiser and features an impressive collection of art using 10x11 "plates" that are either tempered board or plexiglass. You will find all price ranges, all styles and all levels of career artists.
This year actually increases it's offerings to 400 plates in a new larger location and I would love to meet you and see you there!
Plate previews are held prior to the event to provide art lovers and potential buyers with a sneak peek of the artwork. On the evening of the event during the preview hours, culinary delights, beverages, and music are enjoyed and each patron is issued one colored wristband in anticipation of the sale. Beginning at 7:00 PM, and every few minutes thereafter, a random color is announced until all wristband colors have been called. Those patrons are invited to enter the gallery and purchase one plate each. Plate prices start at $85 and increase sequentially in one-dollar increments. This year, approximately 6 artists' plates will be set aside for a blind silent auction, selling from $400 – the sky's the limit. Plates that do not sell on the night of the event may be purchased at Art Access during regular business hours throughout the exhibition.
You must register ahead of time to participate:
VIP registration opens April 10, general registration April 24. All registration closes a couple of days before the event on May 11th.
Location: The Gateway Grand Hall, 400 W South Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah
