Call for Artists: Cups of Kindness - A Benefit

Artists are invited to offer a Cup of Kindness (1-3 pieces) to those in need, through a show and sale of small-scale work in Peninsula, Ohio, to benefit the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

This event, in its second year, is the vision of Debra and Stephen Bures, owners of Elements Gallery in Peninsula, and will be co-sponsored by Peninsula Art Academy, the Peninsula Area Chamber of Commerce, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Association and the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railway.

Artwork may be functional or decorative and may represent an artist’s interpretation of a “cup of kindness”:

  • two-dimensional works must be no more than 8 ½ by 11 inches, and be ready for hanging.
  • three-dimensional pieces must be less than 7 inches tall, and 5 inches wide and deep.

Cups of Kindness premieres on November 27, 2009.

A Meet the Artist’s opening reception will be Saturday, December 5, 2009 at Elements Gallery and Peninsula Art Academy from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. Participating artists will be listed on the website, and will be linked to their own sites if applicable. This show will run thru January 10, 2010 from 11-5, Thursday thru Sunday. Special times may be arranged, please call to make arrangements.

Please submit your donated artworks before November 6, 2009. Items received before this date
will be photographed for inclusion on the Cups of Kindness website, and will be for sale on-line, with the artist’s name featured http://www.cupsofkindness.net.
