Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects more than 23,000 Australians. Of those, 3 out of 4 are women. MS is a chronic and often disabling disease that affects the central nervous system and for which a cure is yet to be found.
We are looking for artists to participate in an exhibition to be held at Finite Gallery in support of MS Australia and those affected with Multiple Sclerosis. The exhibition aims to raise community awareness as well as funds needed for those affected by this, so far, incurable disease. In the last two years the exhibition has attracted the support of over 100 artists and achieved nearly $10,000 in sales, which has realised almost $2500 raised for MS Australia.
The Kiss My Arts 3 exhibition will be held between 2nd May and 31st May. The opening event will be at the Finite Gallery on 2nd May. There will also be a closing event at Finite Gallery on 31st May.
This year we are reducing the commission we are asking from artists to 30% of the sale price. Out of this, 20% of the sale price will go directly to MS Australia to help raise vital funds to assist (or enable) everyone affected by MS to live life to their full potential and secure the care and support they may need, until we ultimately find a cure.
We are asking for a $10 entry fee from each artist to be part of the exhibition. The fee will help to cover any running costs associated with the exhibition events and maximize the final amount that goes to MS Australia. 10% of sales will go to the Gallery.
So if you are a Painter, Photographer, Sculptor, Printmaker, Ceramicist or work in any other creative medium we would invite you to submit your work for inclusion in the exhibition. Hanging space may be limited in the gallery and we will accept only 3 pieces from each artist. Please see the gallery contract for more information, and check with the Gallery owner, Leslie Duffin, regarding sculpture and other 3D pieces.
We strongly encourage you to price your work to sell.
More than ever, with your help, it is time to Kiss Goodbye to MS!
