Create, Compete, and Participate with Your Tiny Art
All Tiny Treasure Entries are due July 10, 2015. An entry form can be found below.
More information can be found at www.wraawrap.com.
WRAA is an organization devoted to providing opportunities for Wisconsin artists who make art for the joy of creative growth and who do not receive the majority of their income from their art. The WRAA has been WRAP's collaborative partner since 1954. The organization continues to collaborate with the Wisconsin Regional Arts Program (WRAP) to offer 24 exhibit/workshops around the state as well as sponsoring youth art exhibitions, and produce art publications for its members. The proceeds from the Tiny Treasure fundraiser benefits the WRAA’s Publication Fund. The WRAA Publication Fund helps support the color catalog for the Wisconsin Regional Art Program’s statewide exhibit each September, the WRAA newsletter Contour Notes, and the Tiny Treasures WRAP Pocket Calendar.
If you donate your piece to the fundraiser to be sold, they are available to potential buyers for $25. The Tiny Treasures included in the Buy-It-Now Fundraiser will be available for sale online starting July 28 and ending August 15, 2014.
If your Tiny Treasure doesn’t sell, and you are willing to donate it, it will be matted and donated to a worthy non-profit organization. In 2014 the WRAA will gift unsold donated works to Wausau’s Neighborhood Shelter in hope of sharing a little something beautiful to a worthy organization doing good work. In 2015 another worthy organization will be chosen.
ARTWORK must be RECEIVED BY JULY 10, 2015
This competition is open to adults and teens at least 14 years old (calculate age as of July 10, 2015). Each Tiny Treasure entry costs $10.00. You do NOT need to be a WRAA member to participate. There are cash awards: 1st Place $100, 2nd Place $75 and 3rd Place $50.
You may enter as many Tiny Treasures as you’d like – submit $10 and a separate ID label for each one. Tiny Treasure entries from prior years can not be submitted again. WRAA members, a registration form can be found in Contour Notes, or it can be downloaded from the WRAA website at http://www.wraawrap.com
The 2015 Tiny Treasure exhibit will be in Madison at the Pyle Center August 11th-September 25th as a part of the Wisconsin Regional Art Program ( WRAP) State Conference activities. Awards will be announced at the WRAA Evening with the Arts Reception at the Pyle Center on September 25th, 7-9 PM
Also new this year is the ability to donate your unsold Tiny Treasures to WRAA to be gifted to a worthy nonprofit organization. Last year 120 Tiny Treasures were donated to a women's shelter. This year they will go to the Middleton Public Library. So rather than sticking your Tiny Treasure in a closet if it is not sold, you can share your creative work with a worthy non-profit organization. All you need to do is check the box on the Entry Form when you enter to indicate your intention
All entries will be exhibited virtually on-line at www.wraawrap.com (You can see the 2014 exhibition there now).
Winners will be notified by phone after July 20, 2015.
You can also choose to donate your Tiny Treasure to the WRAA Buy-It-Now fundraiser, or you may include it in the exhibition and competition and mark it Not For Sale (NFS).
You don’t have to be a WRAA member to participate - although new members are always welcome.
Why not have a Tiny Treasure’s party to enjoy making them together with your friends! Professional and nonprofessional artists are welcome to participate.
What is the Buy-It-Now Fundraiser?
As mentioned above, in addition to the physical exhibition in Madison all Tiny Treasures are posted as part of a virtual exhibition online at www.wraawrap.com.
If you donate your piece to the fundraiser to be sold, they are available to potential buyers for $25. The Tiny Treasures included in the Buy-It-Now Fundraiser will be available for sale online starting July 27 and ending September 14, 2015.
If your Tiny Treasure doesn’t sell, and you are willing to donate it, it will be matted and donated to a worthy non-profit organization doing good work.
