Show Listing



Mexic-Arte Museum is pleased to announce call for entries for their annual Mix 'n' Mash Exhibition and Art Sale, which will open on Friday, December 8, 2017. Our fundraising event not only increases awareness about the visual arts and art collecting in the community, but also provides funding for the Museum’s exhibitions department; supports educational programming for children and adults; and sustains upkeep and care of the permanent collection.

We are inviting over 200 artists to create and donate one work of art on a 12” x 12” eco-friendly and archival quality Gessobord generously donated by Ampersand of Austin, Texas.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
The Gessobords may be picked up at the Mexic-Arte Museum (Monday – Thursday 10 AM-6 PM; Friday – Saturday 10 AM-5 PM; and Sunday 12 PM-5 PM).
Every artist is free to create a work of art in any style (including figurative, conceptual, abstract, surreal, popular, etc.) and media (painting, printmaking, photography, and more) that depicts their individual theme (any theme may be used). Artists who choose the Latina Legends theme (Selena, Frida Kahlo, Celia Cruz, Rita Moreno, Virgin of Guadalupe, Dolores Huerta, Eva Longoria, Sandra Cisneros, Salma Hayek, Shakira, etc.) will be featured in a special section.
Board numbers are assigned, please check the back of your board for your number!
Before returning your board, fill out the registration form that is attached to the back of your board and the online form at bit.ly/mixnmash (artists must complete both forms to be compensated, the online form will be emailed to you once you pick up a board).
We ask that all completed submissions be delivered to the Museum by Monday, November 27, 2017 (late submissions will be accepted, but may not be included in the opening reception).

The opening holiday party reception includes:
• The Mix ‘n’ Mash Exhibit and Art Sale
• Food, cocktails, music, and great fun!
• The public is encouraged to purchase one or more panels to create their own diptychs, triptych, or more

What do I get for participating?
The boards will be sold for $150 a piece (unless your board is selected to be included in a special section). Artists will receive a 40% commission from each board sold, and the boards will remain available for purchase while they are on display in the Mix ‘n’ Mash exhibition. At the close of the exhibition on January 7, 2018 any unsold boards and future sales will be considered donations to the museum. These donations are tax deductible.
As a participating artist, you will receive a one-year Individual Level Membership to Mexic-Arte Museum. Membership benefits include free admission to all exhibitions and select events, invitations to Member Preview opening receptions, subscription to the Museum E-Newsletter, and 10% off Museum Store purchases.
You will also receive two complimentary tickets to the opening night festivity on Friday, December 8, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM (there will be a $10 admission fee for the public, free for members).

Thank you for considering this unique collaborative opportunity, and please reply to exhibitions@mexic-artemuseum.org if you are interested in participating. We hope that you will join us!
