Dear Fellow Artist,
The Merrymeeting Arts Center invites you to join us for our 2nd Annual Equinauxion, on March 21, 2020.
Equinauxion is MAC’s annual fundraising event and last year’s auction was a great success, raising the necessary funds to support the gallery, studio, classes, and other activities MAC provides to the community throughout the year. With your help we hope to make this year’s event even more successful!
Equinauxion 2020 will consist of both a live and silent auction and a reception with food, drink and live music. So how can you help us? By donating your art. And since MAC is committed to supporting new and established artists we decided the most significant difference setting our auction apart from others is that the final sale price of each piece donated is split 50/50 between the artist and the Merrymeeting Arts Center. This is an acknowledgement and commitment to provide the classes, exhibits and events we do while also discovering and nurturing all artists. To those of you who participated in last year’s auction, we invite you to join us again this coming year. To those of you who missed the auction last year, we encourage you to participate in Equinauxion 2020. All submissions of art will be accepted (but please submit no more than 2 pieces) and all submissions are due no later than March 7, 2020. Any unsold art will be returned to the artist, and of course, an artist may kindly choose to donate all proceeds from the sale of their art to MAC.
For more information about the event, or to make arrangements to submit your work, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (207) 370-5002. Thank you for your interest in supporting the arts, local artists, and the Merrymeeting Arts Center.
