Opportunity for Artists

Vision Idea Design is inviting artwork submissions for its Toys For Tots Art Showcase.

The event will be held on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at the Patriots Pub & Grill.

All submissions will be reviewed and selected artists will be invited to participate with between one and five artworks. Proceeds from the sale are split with the artist and the charity, with the artist deciding on the percentage donated.

There is no fee to submit your work.

The Art Showcase raises money for non-profit and volunteer organizations. This is a red-dot event, not a silent auction.

We welcome submissions from artists within the Fairfax region.

All forms of painting, drawing, photography, collage, printmaking (analog and digital), sculpture, and three-dimensional multiples are eligible. *No jewelry, crafts, video or sound art will be accepted at this time.

Artists may submit up to five (5) works.

All 2-D artwork submissions on paper, if accepted, must be framed and ready to hang with wiring in good condition (No saw- tooth hangers)
