Call for artists!!

We are having our first ever SIXxSIX show as a benefit for the Art Alliance Gallery Downtown (AAGD) and we need YOU, artists, friends of artists, & art students, to help us make this a smashingly successful event.

This first-of-its-kind event for our area is a great way to showcase all the wonderful art happening in Centre County–we are hoping to hang 500 pieces in the gallery! To really make SIXxSIX fly though, we will need to get a lot of people participating. The SIXxSIX show opening celebration corresponds with the first night of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts opening Kids Day, which means there will be a lot of people in town who want to see awesome art!!

Which is where YOU come in.

The fundraiser idea is that, YOU (artist, art student, artist friend):

1. make an artwork (or 5) that is 6 inches by 6 inches (possibly by 6 inches again if you are a 3D person) — you can make up to 5 pieces!!

[PLEASE let us know in advance (fill out the form below! or via email or call us at the Art Alliance, 814-234-2740) if you are making something and whether it is 2D or 3D so we can have an idea of how many we have coming in!!]

2. sign your work on the back — DO NOT sign it on the front.

3. mount your piece on something hardish (NOT framed), so we can hang it (like foamcore or masonite or matboard or an old cereal box).

4. DONATE it to our show! 

5. Drop off your work on July 7 from 5 – 8pm or July 8 from 2-8pm here at the AAGD.

6. Come to the show opening the evening of Arts Fest kick off kids’ day, Wednesday, July 12 from 7-9pm amid great fanfare and acclaim!

NOTE: If you need a surface to work on, we have stretched canvases at the Art Alliance office in Lemont FOR FREE!! You may come and pick one (some) up. There is a limited supply so please come sooner rather than later.

Here’s a map… (the Art Alliance office is located in an office at the back of the Gallery Shop at 824 Pike Street Lemont — you can call for directions if you need to: 814-234-2740)…


And THANK YOU in advance, we really think this is going to be an exciting event!! We hope you will participate!
