Calling All Artists!
August 06, 2018
Are you an artist? If so, we invite you to do what you love all weekend long during Color Your Weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 31-Sept. 2, right here at Harvest Green.
Color Your Weekend is a three-day art extravaganza we are hosting in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Museum Fort Bend. In order to make it spectacular, we need you to come out to the Farmhouse, 3400 Harvest Corner Drive, and do what you do best.
Online applications are now available for artists and groups who wish to participate. A $50 application fee covers the cost of a 4-foot by 4-foot vinyl square. The squares will be staked out on our event lawn, ready for you to add a splash of color. While you can begin to work on your vinyl before the event kicks off on Aug. 31, you must continue the work during the event, finishing up on Sept. 1.
Art lovers will bid on your emerging work via silent auction. The auction will take place on all three days of our event. You are not required to sell your work, but if you do, all proceeds from the sale will go directly to you.
The starting bid for each artist or organization participating will be $50, so you will either take your art home or get your submission fee refunded when you collect your earnings.
We’re kicking things off on Friday, Aug. 31, with White Linen Night, an adults-only, artist VIP reception from 7-10 p.m. Admission to the event is $20, but registered artists will receive a free ticket. Guests will enjoy cocktails, music by Marisela y su Son Karibe and unlimited bites by Fuego y Romance BBQ Catering Show.
The rest of the weekend will be devoted to an art market, live music, food and fun.
To participate, submit your application by Wednesday, Aug. 15. You must submit a study for approval and art must be family friendly. Artists also can purchase a booth for $100 in which to sell additional pieces.
Sign up today and add your talent to our colorful weekend!
