ArtWorks, a group in Cincinnati whose goal is employing student and emerging artists to create art that enlivens the Greater Cincinnati community, has an annual fund-raising event featuring the exhibition and sale of 5” x 7” works of art from local, national and international artists. This year they have 1747 pieces of art and all are for sale at $75 each. The secret behind each piece is the identity of the artist, which is revealed after the work is purchased. Tickets for the event are $100 per person and include a voucher for one of the pieces of art (they also have an option for couples for $125 and only 1 piece of art).
The event was held on Nov. 20, and although it sounded like a lot of fun, I was unable to attend. The photo above is the fabric mosaic titled "Tickled Pink" which I donated.
There is a follow-up event, the Post Secret ArtWorks sale on Fri., Dec. 18 from 9 am-7 pm and Sat., Dec. 19 from 9 am-11 am at the ArtWorks Gallery located at 811 Race St. in Cincinnati, Ohio. Secret Art will be sold for $35 each or 2 for $60, and Secret Art from previous years well be sold for $10 each.
