Torpedo Factory Art Center’s popular annual exhibition and art sale, March150, returns to Target Gallery for the 10th year. Proceeds benefit future exhibitions and programs at Target Gallery and the Art Center. The show is on view Saturday, March 14, through Saturday, May 31*, 2020.
All work in the exhibition is created on gallery-supplied 10” x 10” panels and is priced at $150. About 200 original works are created by artists of every ability from the greater metropolitan area. Professional, emerging and amateur artists participate with artworks featuring a diversity of topics and media, including painting, photography, etching, mixed-media, fiber and more.
“March150 has become a staple at the Art Center and people look forward to it all year,” said Leslie Mounaime, director of exhibitions at Torpedo Factory Art Center. “This exhibition is a low-pressure environment for both artists and patrons. It encourages new collectors to buy original art, exposes seasoned collectors to new local artists and sets the stage for artists to test new techniques and ideas. It is accessible and affordable.”
Starting on the last weekend of the exhibition from Saturday, May 30 – Sunday, May 31, all unsold artwork is priced at $100.
In 2019, Target Gallery grossed more than $17,000 from March150. Proceeds benefit exhibitions and programs at the Art Center, such as the annual Solo Exhibition, The Late Shift, and others.
