ATTENTION ARTISTS: Pieces sought for auction, show

To commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we are seeking 10 artists to create works inspired by the journey of breast cancer to be auctioned at a fundraising event on Friday, Oct. 25. 

We are searching for a variety of art forms that reflect some aspect of breast cancer’s broad reach — from diagnosis to treatment, recovery and even loss — and how it affects those whose lives it touches, including its victims, survivors, caregivers and doctors. 

Artists who are selected for participation in the auction will agree to a 50/50 profit share with our organization. The artist retains 50 percent of the money raised and the Power of Pink organization will donate the other 50 percent to the American Cancer Society. Artists will be selected through a jury process and will be expected to display their auction piece during a reception prior to the dinner and live auction. Artists may also display any other art they choose during the reception.

Artists will have a biography printed in the live auction catalog.

If you are interested in participating in the event, please submit photographs of at least five samples of previous work and your contact information to: bill.hanson@newsandtribune.com and dstallar@ius.edu by Friday, May 31.
