10 x 10: Celebrating Creativity

Coastal Arts Guild and American Easel are excited to announce the opening of their 3rd annual exhibit featuring new works on wood on 10″ x 10″ panels. 10 x 10: Celebrating Creativity will be on display in the Upstairs Gallery at Newport Visual Arts Center (VAC) from April 17 – May 26, 2024.

ALSO: Join us Saturday, April 20th from 2-4pm in the Upstairs Gallery for an Opening Reception to celebrate this exhibit. Light refreshments will be served, and the judges choices will be announced.

This unique show features brand-new, multidisciplinary works of art from community artists. Each begins with identical 10” x 10” wood panels as their base, but what they do from that point is entirely up to them. The show will feature a variety of mediums – from acrylics to mixed media, fabric collage, linoleum print, and more.

The exhibition is not only visually beautiful, but it also does something beautiful – it provides funding. Artists purchased their base panels, and that money will fund initiatives at the VAC. The sale of completed pieces, however, will benefit artists directly and fully. When a visitor purchases a completed panel from the exhibition, one hundred percent of the price will go directly to its creator.

“The 10 x 10 show gives artists an opportunity to share the vast variety of their mediums and styles with the public while simultaneously supporting the VAC,” said Chasse Davidson, VAC director. “We’re grateful to the Coastal Arts Guild and feel fortunate to have their support. Their volunteer contributions help keep our galleries accessible to the public, and their monthly Tea & Talk provides an introduction platform for visiting artists.”

Exhibits at Newport Visual Arts Center (VAC) are free to the public and can be viewed most Wednesdays through Sundays, from 12pm – 4pm, at 777 NW Beach Drive in Newport.
