NEW FORMAT FOR 2020
Because of the uncertainty in the world thanks to COVID-19, we are moving to a hybrid exhibition format. The entire exhibition will be available for sale online at Bidding Owl Auctions. We will jury in a total of 144 works of art, all of which will be for sale online. The top 72 works of art will be on display as well in the PACE Center Galleries and open to the public, if quarantine rules permit.
The exhibition will be open for previews November 20 – 27 after which time the show will open for bidding starting on Black Friday, November 27, and closing on Cyber Monday, November 30.
The show will be heavily promoted via email and social media. Artists will receive links and shareable content and are asked to promote the exhibition thorough their social media channels.
Proceeds from this fine art exhibition and sale of paintings, sculpture, and photography by Colorado artists supports the PAG scholarship fund that gives scholarships to four promising honors art students so they can continue their arts education. Students are selected from among the participants in the Annual PACE Center Portfolio Day where honors art students are hand-picked to have their work critiqued by college professors and working artists.
