OKLAHOMA CITY– Join us for a delightful evening of art and community at the Annual 12×12 Art Fundraiser hosted by the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC). For over 35 years, this event has brought together Oklahoma’s finest artists, local food, a cash bar and live entertainment.
This year, we’re thrilled to invite you to Lively Beerworks, located at 815 SW 2nd St. in Oklahoma City, on Friday, Sept. 29, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
“Building upon the success of previous editions, we are committed to offering a better, and improved experience this year,” said a spokesperson for the event.
Each participant artist creates a piece of artwork that conforms to the dimensions of 12×12”, or 12x12x12” for 3D artwork.
You’ll have the opportunity to bid on these works in our online auction, with bidding starting at $200, or you can secure your favorite artwork instantly with the “Buy It Now” option, and participate in our silent auction packages to win amazing prizes from local businesses.
Oklahoma Artist, George Oswalt describes his experience in 12×12 Art Fundraiser: “I’ve participated off and on in the 12 x 12 fundraiser since the beginning many years ago where the exhibitions were in pop up spaces. It was always exciting to see the venue and the amazing work that came in such a small format. One year the 12×12 hung in the home of a major art collector alongside Blue Chip art. That excitement hasn’t changed for me and I always look forward to making a new painting when asked to participate. What an opportunity for a collector to buy great art at a reasonable price and to help fund the OVAC mission.”
Tickets are $45 in advance online and $50 at the door.
Sales and donations go toward OVAC’s mission to grow and develop Oklahoma’s visual arts community through education, promotion, connection and funding.
Children 16 and under get in FREE! This year, Jon Fisher and Trent Lawson are the cochairs of the annual 12×12 Art Fundraiser.
