What is the Art4Art fundraiser?
Every year, the Friends of Vancouver Community Library gives local artists an 8'' x 8'' wood panel to create on. The artist then donates the panel back to the Friends and they are sold in a fundraiser on the first Friday of August. Proceeds go to funding art projects and programming at the library.
Submissions for Art4Art 2023 closed on July 15. Thanks to all who contributed!
The 2023 Art4Art fundraiser will happen in the Columbia Room of Vancouver Community Library on Friday, August 4, from 5:30–7:30 pm, and Saturday, August 5, from 11:30 am–2 pm.
How much are the panels sold for?
In an effort to make art accessible to all regardless of artist notoriety or skill level, all panels are sold for a set price of $30, cash/credit and carry. Buyers are encouraged to find pieces that are meaningful to them, not by "known" artists, which is why we ask artists to only sign the back of the panel.
We look forward to seeing you in August!
