Call for Artists for 2019 “A Time to Gather” Benefit Dinner Auction
The Suquamish Foundation invites donations of art from traditional and contemporary Native artists for its 2019 annual dinner and auction, “A Time to Gather”. The proceeds will benefit the Suquamish Foundation. Works such as carvings, drums, weavings and baskets, jewelry, shawls and blankets, prints, drawings and sculpture are sought for the auction. Artists making donations will receive recognition in the auction catalog and two complimentary tickets to the event.
This is an excellent opportunity for emerging and established artists to support the cultural resurgence of the Suquamish People and to have their works seen by the community, business leaders, government officials and patrons of the arts. Previous year’s auction has been sold out in advance and attracted an audience from throughout the Puget Sound Region. This year the evening will feature a cultural performance. Traditional music will be provided by the Suquamish Song and Dance Group, which has performed regionally as well as locally. Guests will enjoy a gourmet dinner of traditional foods followed by the silent and live auctions.
WHEN: Target date to have all donations received is April 15, 2019 in order to allow us time to photograph and catalog each piece. A description of the piece and one or two sentences about the artist is encouraged.
