Artcite's 34TH annual DOIN' THE LOUVRE Holiday FUN(d)raising®™ exhibition

November 10 - November 21, 2015

Gala Reception for artists guests and patrons: Friday December 4, 7:00 pm
ENTRY DROP-OFF DATES & TIMES: November 10 - Nov 21 from 1:00 - 5:00 pm.
Please note that we are NOT open Sundays, Mondays or mornings!

Call the friendly Artcite staff if you cannot drop-off during these times. 519.977.6564

ELIGIBILITY: Open to Windsor and Detroit/ South Eastern Michigan area artists (if you live outside of the area,
but want to be part of DTL, please call--we would love to be able to include works by our out-of-town members and friends!)

FEES, PRICING AND COMISSIONS: DTL is open and free to all up-to-date Artcite members, so we know you will want to renew
your memberships. If you really don't want to be a member, you can simply pay the $15 admin fee (per you, not per work), which
helps cover our inventory control costs. But since the student/ unemployed/ retired membership rate is $20 and the regular
membership is $25, why not splurge?! All DTL art must be priced at $99.99 or LESS, and less sells better.
Sales commission or this special Artcite FUN(d)raiser ®™ is 70% artist, 30% Artcite.

EXHIBITION REQUIREMENTS: Paintings, drawings, prints, photographs (or a combination of media), small scale 3-D works
and artist-made gift items (books, toys, cards, "art-wear", t-shirts, pottery, accessories, xmas ornaments, etc.) will be exhibited.
A maximum of 10 works per artist will be accepted ( incl. print ed’s., artists’s multiples). Combined dimensions of each work
should not exceed 24 "+ 24 " (or 48" running, two sides -eg: one side at 14", the other side at 34" works too.).
If you really want larger, you must pre-clear your entry with us, and it may be mounted very high or low on the gallery walls.
3-D works must fit within a 24" cube.
PLEASE RESPECT the size restrictions! With over 1000 items on display in recent years,
hanging space can get tight.
MULTIPLES: 10 identical and identically priced works can count as ONE work. This works best for
very low-priced works, e.g. xmas cards, audio CD's, pins, magnets etc. Be advised that only ONE of these might be displayed at a time.
However, a similar group of items, (eg t-shirts) with different designs and prices will count as separate items. Looks different and/ or
has a different price = separate item. Looks the same, has the same price = multiple item, counts as one entry.

SMALL JEWELRY: Please affix small items of jewelry to a display panel where possible. Black velvet over foam board in a frame
works well. Sew, pin or clip the works securely. Providing your own moderately sized display case is always appreciated. 2-D artworks
do not have to be framed, but they MUST be ready for hanging.
All entries must be clearly identified with, labelling on the back where possible * Artist's name, title, medium, date and sale price.
Works accepted will be insured by Artcite during the exhibition ONLY.

We regret that due to restrictions of storage space, Artcite cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to unsold works not picked up
by Tuesday, Jan 5, 2016. Questions? Please call or fax us at: (519) 977-6564 or e-mail us at: info@artcite.ca

Hey!! Artcite members and friends! Are YOU available to help w/ DTL hanging, Installation or w/ holiday decorating?
(Afternoon and evening shifts available)? Have wacky, weirdo or vintage toys, books or Xmas decorations that you'd be willing to
donate or lend (for a tax receipt) for our always-fabulous Xmas window displays? Give us a call! We are also looking for additional
select, high value ($500 - $5,000) donated art works for our annual RAFFLE WALL. We take these as donations and provide a tax receipt.
Please feel free to pass our DTL call on/ distribute to--any--and all--interested artists!  




S'n'B/ATC - come on out and make some of these! ATC's by"Chuck" Stake, 2011

Every month Artcite presents “Stitch ’n Bitch” and “Artist Trading Cards” events in our gallery space or at select off-site locations.
“Stitch ’n Bitch” events feature “how-to” and technique workshops, opportunities for collaborative creation and guest presentations on various issues relating to the feminist landscape.
“Stitch ’n Bitch” is an international movement empowering and reclaiming “women’s work” but guys can show up
and mend their socks too!

Artist Trading Cards (ATC) are teeny works of art (2.5" x 3.5") that are made specifically to trade.
There are no restrictions of medium or theme and materials can range from collage, drawing, painting, glass, ceramic,
metal, fabric and melted wax to computer-generated imagery and photography, etc.
The creative intention behind the creations and trading of ATC’s is to present a non-commercial, non-hierarchal
avenue for artistic exchange — but more importantly, ATC sessions are meant to be FUN!
Cards are traded one-to-one and people of all ages and artistic abilities are encouraged to participate.

Artcite’s first monthly ATC event was launched in Spring 2007, with a generous gift of several ATC’s
by Vancouver artist Chuck Stake, for Artcite’s “25 Years to Life” anniversary art exhibition and festivities.
The local component of ATC production and trading has proven to be a success and the gallery
has seen a diverse and increased interest with each trading session.

“Stitch ’n Bitch” and “Artist Trading Card” sessions are usually held on the last Thursday of every month.

Stitch ’n Bitch” and Artist Trading Cards at Artcite now has a Facebook Group!

Artcite Inc., Windsor's artist-run center and gallery for the contemporary arts will host a project curated and organized by local entrepreneur/artist Daniel (D3N!@L) Bombardier to feature, fifteen street-art murals that will be created in Windsor’s downtown core (and surrounding areas).

Dynamic murals will replace dull walls that were subject to vandalism (or ‘tagging’), neglect or disrepair. Works will be completed in high traffic, high visibility areas to be experienced by the largest audience possible. Each work will be geographically dependent, reflecting the individual site and a specific community. These works created by internationally recognized street-art muralists will serve as positive gestures to the community, bringing long lasting character, energy and beauty to the city, and placing Windsor on the forefront of the international street-art movement.
