Call for Entries: The Painted Canvas becomes The AAF-Black Hills Art Auction

The past two years, The Painted Canvas silent auction has been held at the American Advertising Awards to showcase the creativity of our community, while raising much-needed funds for AAF-Black Hills.  We greatly appreciate the response we have gotten in the last two years, but realized that while this opportunity was great for painters, we were leaving out the countless other creative mediums that our club members, and others in the community, have to offer.

This year we are expanding The Painted Canvas to become The AAF-Black Hills Art Auction.  We welcome any creative mind to participate in the silent auction at the American Advertising Awards by submitting your creations for auction. Paintings, framed photographs, sculptures, pottery and any other physical art form that you are willing and able to create, we will welcome and auction off at the event.

Canvases are still available in limited numbers for a $5 refundable deposit.

If you have questions on whether a piece is eligible for inclusion in the auction, or would like more information on the artistic guidelines, please email Lyndsey Akley at Deadline for entries is Jan. 29.
