Small Wonders — Call to Artists!

Dear Fellow Artist and TDS Friends,

The Drawing Studio is excited to announce the details of our annual Holiday Fundraiser, Small Wonders. We are celebrating our 14th year of this community-wide event. Expect to see and purchase fine, original artwork by TDS Faculty, Associates and Artist Friends of the studio at affordable prices.

Please submit up to TWO original artworks in any medium and ready to display salon-style in the TDS galleries (no reproductions, photographs, or giclées, please). Maximum framed or cradled size should not exceed 11” X 14” for rectangular formats and 12” x 12” for square formats. 3D and sculptural works are also welcome, maximum size suggestion, to fit in a shoe-box. Think small and elegant. No Entry Fee. No Hanging Fee.

Please price artworks at $200.00 or less with 50% of sales to the artist and 50% to TDS. Generous donations above 50% always welcome. These funds benefit our educational and student scholarships. Works sold may be taken immediately. To expedite the submission process, you can download and print the art Inventory form and Contract form and bring them along with your artwork or you can pick up a copy at our new location!

About our Gallery

Exhibition is a direct communication between the artist and the viewer. Exhibiting work completes the cycle of creativity. Showing artwork provides opportunities for those who have mastered their craft as well as those who are learning a new medium. It can also illustrate the journey of those pursuing an idea or the mastery of a medium. Visitors to the gallery can see the outcomes of coursework and study as well as the ideas and work that stem from a continued studio practice.

Some exhibits remain in our repertoire each year—Small Wonders, The Gala and the Associates show (which change themes each year). Additionally, the exhibit council comes up with various themed shows each year. Most of our shows are open to community participation. We also jury proposals from artists in the Tucson community to keep up with art that is current, so we can present new artists and visions to our audience.

If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering for specific events or exhibitions, contact the TDS Exhibition Coordinator at exhibits@thedrawingstudio.org
