NEWSROOM POST: TRENTON, NEW JERSEY

Trenton, NJ – One of Artworks Trenton’s signature events, the 10×10 Red Dot Fundraising Exhibition, enters its 13th year with hopes of being bigger and better than before. Addison Vincent, Artistic Director of Artworks Trenton states, “During the pandemic, we utilized the internet and a virtual gallery to keep the 10×10 alive. We are carrying the virtual exhibition into this year’s event, learning that the popularity of the 10×10 was far reaching, and it gives people accessibility without having to be here in person. Whether someone is buying their
first piece of original art, or adding to their collection, they will find a piece of art to fall in love with.”

Managing Director, Craig Shofed spoke to the accessibility for artists. “The 10×10 is an example of Artworks’ overall mission of making art accessible to everyone. Anyone can participate in the exhibition, from refrigerator artists, budding artists testing the waters and showing their work for the first time, right up to the seasoned veteran, we accept all works created for the event, provided they fit the 10”x10” criteria.”

Red Dot + Artwork = Support. The Red Dot shows support for Artworks and the community of artists in Trenton. Over 100 Trenton area and regional artists can pick up one free 10”x10” canvas courtesy of Jerry’s Artarama in Lawrence, NJ, at Artworks from now until supplies last. Jerry’s Artarama will also have canvases for a discounted price if the artists wish to create more than one. The works are dynamic, diverse and all created specifically for
Artworks. Works in oil, acrylic, mixed media, photography, pastel, watercolor and more can be found in this exhibition. Each artwork sells for $100, with $50 going to the artist, and $50 going to Artworks. In many cases, the artists choose to donate the full proceeds of the sale to Artworks which is used for programming throughout the year.
