Gallery Holiday Show
A local gallery holds a holiday exhibition every year called 6 by 6. For a reasonable entrance fee and a 20% commission, artists are invited to submit works that meet the 6" square requirement. The goal is to raise money for the gallery by providing the community with an opportunity to purchase original works of art. Out of curiosity, I decided to participate this year and submitted a few pieces. Because of the economy, I wasn't sure if the work would sell but was pleased to find that a couple of pieces had been purchased. Granted, they were priced at only $35 each but there was something about selling small works locally that appealed to me.
