The North Texas Artists Auction was created with two visions in mind: To make a positive impact by raising funds for social causes that are currently affecting the community and to create a platform for artists in North Texas to build a community and bring awareness to the talent that resides here. For each series the artists have an option of donating a minimum of 20% of the sales to two organizations. For Series Two, we are focusing on two local organizations, Feed the People Dallas and United Peoples Coalition.
The artists suggest the sale price, prices may be adjusted depending on size, framing, and anything that may affect the cost for shipping. All unsold work stays with the artist. North Texas Artists Auction does not keep or hold any art. Shipping and local delivery is left to the artist to fulfill.
All current North Texas residents are encouraged to submit. Series Two’s theme is 'Prints + Zines', we are currently accepting print based media which may include: artist books, zines, printmaking, and photography. We will select a total of 15 submissions to be included in an auction sale starting Oct. 26th. 1 submission per artist of a zine or print (with a maximum of 5 copies/edition of 5).
