8×8 to Educate
9 Glenrowan Drive, Tallai Qld 4213
We encourage everyone of all ages and skill level to participate. The competition is as much about encouraging you to give it a go as it is about raising funds for the education of children in Developing Nations.
Of course. The goal is to gather many pieces of original works of art that are 8 inches x 8 inches. Each person may enter up to 5 artworks.
Yes but please ensure that the OUTSIDE dimensions do not exceed 8 inches x 8 inches as the artwork is to be displayed in neat rows and it is important that all pieces are the same size. Framed work must have a WIRE to enable it to be hung. ARTWORK CAN BE ENTERED ON PAPER OR CANVAS ALONE AND UNFRAMED WHICH IS THE PREFERRED METHOD OF ENTRY.
It is so easy! Here are the basics:
INVITE, your friends, co-workers, family members, or your drinking buddies.
HOST YOUR PARTY and make something creative together!
ENTER AND PAY ONLINE USING THE SAME PARTY NAME FOR EACH ENTRY at least 6 pieces before the entry deadline (they will be installed together). Each artwork needs a complete entry form.
8X8 TO EDUCATE is an annual event with all funds raised going to support education of children in Developing Nations.
Artworks that are sold are marked with a coloured dot at the exhibition and marked as sold online.
We love having students participate in 8×8 To Educate! Have all your students make 8×8 inch artworks, then enter online. These can be mailed in together.
The external dimensions of the piece should be exactly 8 inches square including border and mat. Smaller pieces may be mounted to 8″ x 8″ paper or board. Installation is based on a grid, artworks larger than 8″ x 8″ effect the efficiency of this method.
Of course. We cannot guarantee that the complete series will be installed together or in order, but we will try to install them in a horizontal row. We cannot accommodate vertical sequencing. Each person may enter up to five artworks. If you want them in a certain order, please number the works left to right.
The installation will be at the organisers discretion.
Of course. Canvases are accepted as long as they are pre-wired.
If you choose not to donate your unsold work, yes you may collect your artworks after the exhibition on the date and place detailed on the website. Any works not collected will become the property of 8×8 To Educate. We reserve the right to sell works.
We cannot guarantee that all work will be displayed. However it is our intention to hang as many as possible. ALL artwork however will be displayed online.
8×8 to Educate reserves the right to reject any artwork. However, that is not the intention of the organiser. We do not anticipate this occurring.
Please do not enter any works containing glitter. Any art being entered with unfixed charcoal or pastel must have a temporary cover sheet for both its protection and that of the surrounding works. Please label the cover sheet as such as it will be removed upon installation.
All proceeds, yes folks that is 100%, will go directly to children’s education in Developing Nations. I am personally covering the administration costs. This is a fun initiative that brings together a diverse group of people. It is also an important fundraiser that enables thoughtful contemporary art programming.
The buyer receives a copy of your entry form with the artist’s name and contact information. The buyer may then contact the artist if they would like to. When entering artworks, be sure to put some form of contact information (ex. a business card) if you wish to be contacted by the buyer of your artwork. Due to the scale of this exhibition we are not able to provide the buyer’s information to the artist.
Yes, the copyright belongs to the artist upon creation and remains as such regardless of the buyer. It is important to include contact information with your piece so that the buyer can contact you.
The gallery exhibition will open on April 2, 2024. Artworks may sell out on opening night.
The 8×8 To Educate Online Gallery will display artwork as entries are received. Work will only be sold from the online gallery from 2024-04-07 09:00:00. First opportunity to purchase will be at the Opening Night (April 6, 2024).
Artworks from 8×8 To Educate will remain on display until exhibition close date. Artwork Pick-Up days will be advised online. If you are unable to pick up your purchased works on these days, please pay our flat shipping fee of $5 to have the work mailed to you AFTER the close of the exhibition.
When you buy any piece for $30 you have the option of paying an extra $5 to have the work(s) mailed to you AFTER the close of the exhibition. If you can’t make it to the pickup days, you must have the work shipped to you.
Admission for the exhibition is free. Entry fees for artist to enter the exhibition $15 for Adults and $5 for Juniors 18 and under.
