ArtHaus in Decorah is seeking photographers of all types and stripes to help cover their gallery with photos for the Push-Pin Show. No mats or frames are necessary, each print will be pinned to the ArtHaus gallery wall using a maximum of 4 pushpins. Photographs must be original and can be dropped off between 1-5 Monday-Saturday starting February 5. The entry fee is $5 per photo.
Photographers are encouraged to sell their work with a silent auction bid form with a percentage of the proceeds going to help sustain the ArtHaus gallery. Photographers submitting photos between Feb 5-17 will receive 60% of bid, Feb 19-March 3 will receive 50%, and March 5-9 will receive 40%. ArtHaus is currently campaigning to raise $10,000 or $830 a month to help with sustaining the costs of providing a local art gallery to Northeast Iowa.
A closing reception with refreshments will take place March 9, where people may make their final bids and collect their photographs. All prints must be picked up between March 9-14.
The PushPin Show recognizes creative talent throughout Northeast Iowa; photographers of all ages are encouraged to participate including beginners, emerging photographers, established professionals, hobbyists, youngsters, college students, and retirees.
The Pushpin show is sponsored by Photography by Brittany.
