Links in a Chain FUNdraiser
Purchase ticket for drawing: $20 each
FSG is excited to announce we will be showcasing our "Links in a Chain in 2018" fundraising contest to benefit FSGand its educational programs.
We are asking metal artists from all over the country, to send in one or more necklace links that best represents their work to be part of a wearable necklace (or two if we get enough links) that will be put on display at The Morean Art Center, and subsequently raffled off. This is also a contest that will include prizes for the top 3 best links.
Show us your vision. Impress us with your signature style. Let your piece represent you as an artist! Create a link that will become part of a necklace chain (or two) and ultimately raffled off. We will award prizes to the best three links sent in, so show off your artistic ability! The judges, will represent the art community in the Tampa Bay area.
All the links will be photographed and posted on the FSG website. We will post your artwork, with your name and a photo of your artwork, with your name and a website link (even to Facebook) if you would like. If you have a photograph you would like to provide of the link, we can work with that too! This is great advertising and promotion opportunity for all participants, and the sooner you send them in the sooner they will be pictured on the website !
Each link should include a total of 2 jump rings, (16 Gauge and are 5mm or as close to that as you have) with 1 on each end to
help it attach to the other links. All metals and skill levels are welcome. Links should be of high quality and durable for wear. We encourage metal and fabrication, but will not exclude anyone. We want to show the world what we do!
The completed chain (or two!) will be displayed at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, Florida from September until
the drawing in early December. It will be seen by thousands of visitors. You will be part a true art experience. Members can send a link and $5 for the drawing to be held to win a chain. Want more chances to win? Send an additional $10.00 for each additional ticket.
Non-Members can send a link and $10 for the drawing. Want more chances? $15 for additional tickets for non-members. Can’t find the time to make a link, but want in on the fun and contribute to the fundraiser? Just $20 a ticket to enter the drawing.
