Harwood Art Center presents 12×12 and PRELUDE, fundraising exhibitions that feature established, emerging and youth artists from New Mexico. The main event, our 12×12 exhibition, includes over 200 works that remain anonymous until sold – for the flat rate of $144 (12″x12″) or $36 (6″x6″).
12”x12” works by over 130 emerging and established artists, who remain anonymous until the works are purchased. Each piece is sold for $144 on the night of the 12×12 event, Saturday, December 1, on a first come, first served basis.
6”x6” and 12”x12” works by student artists from Escuela del Sol Montessori, Garfield Middle School and Hayes Middle School. These works also remain anonymous until they are purchased. Each 6”x6” piece is sold for $36 and each 12”x12” piece is sold for $44. They are first offered to the children’s parents and then to the public on the night of the 12×12 event.
Prelude highlights the intersections of art, design and daily living. Prelude supports Harwood *and* our collaborating artists, who receive a percentage of sales.
In addition to the exhibitions and auction, the 12×12 event will feature live music and food generously provided by over a dozen local restaurants. The event is family friendly and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5 – $20 at the door. All funds raised support Harwood’s free community arts education, outreach and professional development programs – multifaceted, immersive offerings shaped by and for participants of all ages, backgrounds and perspectives.
