Display your art and antiques in the show!
Your item doesn’t have to be an heirloom! Any object of artistic, sentimental or historical interest with thought-provoking history will help to make this show a success.
Perhaps Grandma’s Teapot had a cache of confederate monies hidden inside for her secret savings. You could bring a ceramic object that generations of relatives stole from each other, an old painting, a wall hanging, an old book, an old print, a map or a small sculpture, or a piece of furniture. It can be anything, just not too large. We have glass cabinets and we’re insured. Two people will be on duty when the gallery is open.
The event’s purpose is to get together, have fun and enjoy each other’s company and to promote community spirit. And of course, we’ll share family histories and funny tales.
Your item does not have to be for sale, however, if you choose to sell, we are asking a 25% commission. The gallery accepts credit cards and we remit commissions within one month. If you want to enter or have any questions, please call Anna Raff at 703-795-5976 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for entry is Friday, March 18 for notification. Just call or email her to share your entry, and let Anna know you want to have something placed in the show.
For those of you considering a submission, the deadline to notify TAG is March 18 and the deadline to deliver your favorite item is Sunday, March 27. Additional drop off dates for your convenience are March 16 -9:30 to 12:30, and March 17 – 20 Noon to 4 p.m. The Gallery is located on the corner of Water and Prince Street in Old Tappahannock.
A short history paragraph, your name and phone number should be attached to your item, PLEASE. The opening reception is on Saturday April 2nd, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The Artique Road Show will run from April 2nd until May 1st. Please join us and meet TAG’s new President, Elizabeth Harper and our new board members.
(THIS IS A CHANGE. TAG has decided to move the opening of the “Artique” Roadshow to Saturday, April 2 to avoid any conflict with Good Friday and Easter Weekend. )
