Supporting GALA  A significant portion of the funds required to support GALA programs comes from our members’ donations. In this show,
we will offer two ways for you to help GALA by making the following 100% donations:
       The “Off the Wall Art Sale”  Create original artwork exactly 5”x7” in size, which may be framed or unframed. On each piece, please sign your name on the front and print your name on the back. If unframed, GALA will frame the pieces. Photography will be priced at $25 each and all other mediums will be priced at $45 each.
If your item(s) need to be framed, you may either bring them to the drop-off or, better yet, bring them before the drop-off to Surroundings Gallery at 377 Main Street, Gardner, MA 01440. Call 978-630-2340 first to confirm when they are open. This will allow more time for the items to be framed.
      Raffle  Donate artwork or art related items to the raffle. If you have not already provided info about your donation,  please email us with the title, medium and whether it is an original or print (you don’t need to include this for photography). Bring the items to the art drop-off.
Thank you for your generosity!

Volunteers  If you checked the volunteer box on your entry form, you will
be called to discuss dates/times (and thanks for helping)!

Artwork Labels  Please attach artwork labels to the back of your pieces. First, save/download the pdf to your computer.  Then you can either fill them in on your computer and then print them or print out the blank labels and fill them in by hand.

Artist Statement  If you would like to have an 8×11 (letter size) artist
statement included in a book for visitors to view, bring it with you to the art
drop-off. Advice on how to write an artist statement.

Parking on Friday Evening  We have been fortunate to experience high
attendance on opening night, so if possible, please carpool and park further
away in order to leave room for visitors nearer the entrance.
