Squares of Stickiness: A Show Inspired by Inktober

On the heals of INKTOBER (follow along for prompts from each day HERE, please join us for a ONE DAY ONLY SHOW AND SALE of “Squares of Stickiness" at Argyle Fine Art on Saturday, November 2nd, 3pm-7pm  for a fun group show inspired by the awesome folks at Hot Art Wet City in Vancouver, BC.  The show will feature one-of-a kind art on 3” x 3” inch sticky notes from artists for just $20 each. All ages are encouraged to participate. Free to attend, as always! Join in the fun and support local living artists!This could be a fun idea to do with the kids or community group too...

An example of one of our first submissions by Rachel Ogden! She painted on a pink sticky note.
All artwork must be done on an actual sticky note. Any subject matter and colour is fine but it must measure 3" x 3" and have an adhesive back.  No diptychs : no works that have multiple pieces to make a whole.Minimum of 5 and maximum of 10 submissions, per artist.  Materials are up to each artist but NO pencil sketches. Each work will sell for $15 each with a 50/50 split between the gallery and the artist.  ART FOR THE SHOW must be received no later than October 26th.  If you have any questions, get in touch.

If possible submit your art on 3 sticky notes like this:  
#1 sheet: Put your Amazing ART right there..and don’t forget to sign the back with your signature. #2 sheet: PRINT your name on this second sheet, along with your mailing address and email so we can pay you later. #3 sheet: Leave this page empty but attach it to the other sheets to keep the adhesive clean.

If you are delivering your art to us in person, please do so during regular business hours and in an envelope to keep your art safe and clean or if you are submitting more than one work, you caoul also attach al your sheets to one larger piece of paper etc.If your work is unsold after the show, you will be responsible for picking up your work or arranging for it to be returned within no longer than 1 month of the show ends.
