Artclectic will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in October.
We are proud of the work we put in last year to take Artclectic online during Covid. We attracted buyers from all over the country, and we were happy to support our artists, as well as continue with a show that has been a favorite USN community event in October for over two decades.
We are planning to return to a show at the school in the fall, with adjustments made as needed to ensure that we keep the school community healthy. Thanks to the generous efforts of Atiba last year, we now have a beautiful website to accompany the in-person art show.
For those of you new to the event, Artclectic is an annual juried art show with 65+ emerging and established artists, both local and out-of-state. Proceeds from the event are given to the Artclectic Endowment Fund for Innovative Teaching, a fund supporting curricular innovation and classroom excellence.
We are excited about our 2021 showcase of diverse artists. You will see artists new to the show, returning favorites and artists from last year’s online show who will be in person for the first time this year. In addition, we will have a dozen artists who will be exclusively selling online.
We missed seeing faces last year so we aim to bring a renewed spirit about coming together as a school community. You don’t have to be an art collector to enjoy this event. It’s a time to be proud of our school and our art show, to volunteer if you are looking for more engagement at USN, and to connect with new and old friends.
The show will open with the Patron’s Party on Thursday, October 21st. During the school day on Friday, each lower school class will have a hands-on experience meeting with the artists in small groups; and Middle and High school students will have opportunities to walk through the gallery and speak with artists. Friday night is Art Bash, our community party and Saturday is a great day to bring the family.
Plans will be contingent on advice from the medical community. Please stay tuned for announcements closer to the show about any changes to the itinerary and which events will be live at USN, online, or both.
Visit the Artclectic website, www.artclectic.org, where you will find information on the upcoming show and the events surrounding it, links for information on our generous sponsors and information about our participating artists along with images of their work.
POPclectic is Artclectic’s hip companion – a marketplace for artisan food and crafts. This is a chance for talented community members to showcase their wares. Whether you are a seasoned seller or a crafter who wants to try your hand at retail, we invite you to fire up your creative juices and POP to it.
