13th Annual Red Dot 10×10 Art Sale opens at Artworks Trenton on December 9th

13th Annual Red Dot 10×10 Art Sale opens at Artworks Trenton on December 9th

One of Artworks Trenton’s signature events, the 10×10 Red Dot Fundraising Exhibition, enters its 13th year with hopes of being bigger and better than before.

Addison Vincent, Artistic Director of Artworks Trenton, states, “During the pandemic, we utilized the internet and a virtual gallery to keep the 10×10 alive.  We are carrying the virtual exhibition into this year’s event, learning that the popularity of the 10×10 was far-reaching, and it gives people accessibility without having to be here in person. Whether someone is buying their first piece of original art or adding to their collection, they will find a piece of art to fall in love with.”

Managing Director Craig Shofed spoke about the accessibility for artists. “The 10×10 is an example of Artworks’ overall mission of making art accessible to everyone.  Anyone can participate in the exhibition, from refrigerator artists to budding artists testing the waters and showing their work for the first time, right up to the seasoned veteran. We accept all works created for the event, provided they fit the 10”x10” criteria.”  

Red Dot + Artwork = Support. The Red Dot shows support for Artworks and the community of artists in Trenton. Over 100 Trenton area and regional artists can pick up one complimentary 10” x 10” canvas courtesy of Jerry’s Artarama in Lawrence, NJ, at Artworks until supplies last.  Jerry’s Artarama will also have canvases for a discounted price if the artists wish to create more than one. The works are dynamic, diverse, and all created specifically for Artworks. Results in oil, acrylic, mixed media, photography, pastel, watercolor, and more can be found in this exhibition. Each artwork sells for $100, with $50 going to the artist and $50 going to Artworks.  In many cases, the artists choose to donate the entire proceeds of the sale to Artworks, which is used for programming throughout the year.

Art submissions will begin November 7th and run through November 25th. Drop-off for artwork begins November 28 and runs through December 3, 11 am – 5 pm.  Artworks Trenton members receive a one-hour preview and the ability to purchase first, starting at 5 p.m. on the 9th of December.  The opening reception and sale for the general public in-person and online will begin at 6 p.m. and run through 9 p.m.  Sales will remain open until January 6, 2023.
