About the Exhibition
Every summer PAAM members sell their artwork and raise funds for PAAM in the 12×12 silent auction. With over 300 submissions in 2017, the 12×12 exhibition is a significant fundraiser for PAAM and one of the best ways for artist members to get their work noticed.
All pieces have a starting bid of $125, and climb by demand until the final minutes of the exhibition. Artist-members sell their work at 50% commission, winning bidders get wonderful artworks, and PAAM gets 50% commission, or 100% if the artists donate to PAAM. It’s a win-win-win!
Drop-Off Day is Tuesday, June 19 from 12-4pm. Early drop-offs are welcome the week prior during Museum hours only (open daily at 11am in June). Work may also be shipped to PAAM, but must arrive by Drop-Off Day.
Membership must be valid through August, 2018, anyone is welcome to join or renew when dropping off work.
Work must be 12” x 12”. We offer a limited number of masonite panels, free of charge, to interested members—pick one up at the Front Desk during Museum hours.
Unlike other member exhibitions, we encourage members to submit their work unframed and without a hanging device whenever possible for the 12×12. As with all member shows, work needs to be dry.
The Final Bids Party is Sunday, August 26. Bids close in alphabetical order by artist last name. All bids are binding. Bidders need not be present to win, but we do not offer live absentee bidding. Bidders are welcome to send a friend to bid on their behalf, but they must provide that friend with their paddle number. Unsold works are offered at a base price of $125 for the week after the closing.
