The Friends of the Plainfield–Guilford Township Public Library invite you to submit work for consideration for the 2019 Arts Gala: Facets.

Consideration for the seventh annual Arts Gala: Facets is going on now through January 28, 2019. This fine art sale and fundraiser is the largest indoor fine art events in Hendricks County. This event offers original fine artwork in a variety of styles and media for sale to the public.

Each year more than 70 artists are selected to participate in this event. Arts Gala will take place April 26, 27 and 28, 2019 at the Library.

This callout is for all artists to submit their artwork, including specifically jewelry designers who wish to also be in the running for the coveted signature artist/piece designation. The signature artist will receive a decorated feature in our Arts Gala program, highlighted gallery space and media coverage. The signature piece must be for sale at Arts Gala 2019.

The Arts Gala opens with the Starlight Reception, which is now open to the public on Friday, April 26 from 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. This spectacular event allows the community to meet the artists and gives them the first opportunity to view and make their purchases from the displayed art.  Attendees will enjoy live music, hors d’oeuvres, wine, and craft beers.

The event continues on Saturday, April 27, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 28, 1 – 5 p.m., with various live-artist demonstrations throughout the day.

The purpose of the Arts Gala is to raise funds for special Library programs and initiatives that will benefit the community. In previous years funds went towards updating the Children’s Room and sponsoring mental health events and awareness.

Over the last six years the Arts Gala fundraiser has:

  • Sold over $103,000 in local artwork
  • Raised over $31,000 for library projects
  • Partnered with over 50 community sponsors
  • Publicized in over 30 publications
  • Partnered with over 150 local artists
  • Drawn over 3,000 attendees

Entry deadline is January 28, 2019. This event is a juried exhibition and sale.

There are no artist fees. The Library will retain a 30 percent commission on all artwork sold.
