Dear Artist,

Mexic-Arte Museum is pleased to invite you to participate in our Mix ‘n’ Mash Exhibit and Art Sale, which will open on Friday, December 2, 2011. This festive fundraising event fosters Mexic-Arte Museum’s goals to increase awareness of art collecting in the community, in addition to raising much needed funds for the Museum’s 2011-2012 Season of exhibitions and education programs.

We are inviting over 200 local and regional artists to create and donate works of art on 12” x 12” eco-friendly and archival quality Gessoboards generously donated by Ampersand of Austin, Texas

You may create a work in any style (figurative, conceptual, abstract, surreal, folkloric, etc.) and media (sculptural/relief, painting, printmaking, photography, and more) on one Gessoboard. The Gessoboards can be picked at the Mexic-Arte Museum Store during regular business hours (Monday – Thursday 10 AM-6 PM, Friday and Saturday 10 AM-5 PM, and Sunday noon-5 PM) as early as August 22, 2011. We ask that all completed submissions be delivered or mailed to the Museum by Saturday, October 15, 2011.

As a participating artist, you will receive a one-year membership to Mexic-Arte Museum. Membership benefits include free admission to all exhibitions and select events, invitations to Member Preview opening receptions, subscription to the Museum E-Newsletter, and 10% off Museum Store purchases. You will also receive 2 complimentary tickets to the opening night festivity on Friday, December 2, from 6:00 – 10:00 PM (there will be a $25 admission fee for the public). Art works will continue to be sold through January 2, 2012.

We hope that you will agree to participate! The Mix ‘n’ Mash Exhibit and Art Sale project is an exciting event that will make art accessible to the community, promote the artists, encourage art collecting, raise funds for Mexic-Arte Museum, and create a special evening of holiday festivities!

Thank you for considering this unique collaborative opportunity, and please fill out the registration sheet with your contact information and send to exhibitions@mexic-artemuseum if you are interested in participating (please let us know by August 31, 2011). Feel free to contact with any further questions at (512) 480-9373 x83. If you live out of town (no international mailings) and are interested in participating, we may mail you a Gessoboard.
