Now in its 6th year, the 10×10 is a great opportunity for collectors of all levels to get interesting pieces by talented artists at a remarkable price. Prints, drawings, paintings, and mixed media will be on display and buyers can have instant gratification as purchased works can be taken home immediately. “I’m thrilled by the turnout and support,” remarks Artistic Director Gretchen Schermerhorn. “Having so many talented artists say yes during the current pandemic and political crisis is a testament to how much artists are willing to support institutions they care about. I am thankful for the nominating committee which included Alonzo Davis, Deborah Grayson, Bronwyn King, and Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi for pulling together such an impressive roster of seasoned and emerging artists.”
