Community Art Project at the Ramsdell
The Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts (RRCA) invites the public to participate in a new community art fundraiser called, “Community Art2.” All ages and artistic abilities are encouraged to join in creating a wall of small canvases (6″ x 6″) that will be exhibited in Hardy Hall Gallery, and available for sale during the winter holidays.
What does the “2” or “squared” symbol mean? In math, multiplying a number by itself is called “squaring” the number. The Ramsdell wants to multiply (many times) the number of canvases that our community contributes! It also refers to the fact that the symbol is used to represent a four-sided closed figure with four angles; the canvases themselves are square.
Participants must register (online or in-person) and then pick up their “square” (6×6) canvases at the Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts: Mon thru Fri, 10 am to 5 pm, via the 1st Street Entrance door. Online registration can be found at www.ramsdelltheatre.org/art/. The finished artwork canvases needs to be returned to the Ramsdell by Saturday, 10/29, by 3 pm.
Registration fee includes the following options:
$5 purchase includes 2 each of the 6×6 canvases
$10 purchase includes 4 each of the 6×6 canvases
Two art canvas workshops will also be offered at the Ramsdell during October. Check out the weblink for more information, www.ramsdelltheatre.org/art/.
The Community Art2 exhibition runs November 17 through December 18. All canvases will be for sale to the public for $20 each. Proceeds will support the RRCA’s grassroots programs (school field trips, workshops, and theatre camp).
