Blue Line Arts
Each year Blue Line Arts hosts a charity poker event, All In for the Arts, to raise funds for our nonprofit organization. This year all proceeds will go towards lighting maintenance and improvement costs, to help us purchase and repair the aging track lights that illuminate all of the art on display at the gallery. We are seeking original works of art to display and sell before and during the event.
Categories for entry:
1. Artist Edition Playing Cards Do you have a unique playing card design that you would like to see used at a poker tournament? The top juried deck will win a cash prize of $200. Select artists will have the opportunity to sell printed decks at the gallery. Requirements: - Card designs must be scalable to bridge- sized card dimensions: 2.25”x3.5” - Must include designs for all cards in a standard 52-card deck - Please submit images of at least three cards, including at least one face card and one number card.
2. Poker/ Gambling Themed Original Art – Juried Prize This theme is open to interpretation and abstract work will be accepted. This category is appropriate if you are interested in donating your artwork to serve as a tournament prize for the charity event. $100 prizes will be awarded to the top 3 juried artists. All artists with accepted work will receive two tickets to the event on September 7th.
3. Silent Auction If you are not interested in donating, and only interested in selling your work during the event, the work will be included in our silent auction. Please list your artwork price as a minimum bid price- standard gallery commission rates apply. Entries in this category do not have to strictly follow the gambling theme but should be appropriate for a poker tournament event in order to be selected.
