Sneakers and Canvas Call to Artists

Artist Opportunity: Decorated Sneakers and Sneaker-themed Canvas: The opening night for CONTINUUM will be their V.I.P. Black Tie and Sneaker Charity Affair, on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m. The event is to benefit Faith’s Place Center for Education Inc. Faith’s Place is an organization that provides educational services to the community, offering pre-school (VPK), homework assistance, tutoring, and after school arts enrichment programs. Donations to Faith’s Place will be the suggested admission at the door of a new pair of sneakers, as well as the auctioning off of artist-decorated sneakers and canvases. Artists may choose to decorate a pair of sneakers or a 20” x 20” canvas, both of which will be provided by A.T.B. Fine Artists & Designers. The decorated sneakers and sneaker-themed canvases will be sold through a silent auction during the Black Tie and Sneaker Charity Affair. 

Please go to the page on this website titled "Sneakers Call to Artists" to download the Call to Artists and receive all the information related to this opportunity.

Last year, artists decorated pairs of sneakers, but this year we are also offering the opportunity to create a sneaker-themed canvas. The artists really outdid themselves with their decorated sneakers. Here are a few from last year for inspiration.
