Thank you for choosing to participate in our Awards Program. We are pleased that all Purchase and Merit Awards go directly to the artists. We also appreciate additional donations to help support this important Exhibition. There are three ways to donate:
By sponsoring a $300, $400, or $500 Purchase Award, you will be able to buy a work of art from the exhibition in one of those price categories from a Purchase Award participating artist. Your entire chosen Purchase Award amount honors and awards the artist. Choosing your painting at the time of installation ensures your name will be in the program and announced at the gala during the awards ceremony. A Purchase Award ribbon will be displayed in association with the art you have chosen.
By sponsoring a Merit Award, in any amount, your cash donation will go toward an individual cash award to artists whose works are selected by the judge on basis of artistic merit. A Merit Award ribbon will be hung with all paintings that receive this honor. Some Merit Awards will be in the form of sponsored gift certificates.
Direct donations to the Art Barn can be made here, by filling out the online form below, or by mailing a check to Art Barn School, 695 N 400 E, Valparaiso, IN 46383
As always, you may purchase any painting in the show at its regular price, excluding those already selected for Purchase Awards by other donors.
