ReCreative Spaces has partnered with Rhode Island Avenue Main Street, Cultural Tourism DC, and Keller Williams Capital Properties, to support and manage the below artist call this month.

Keller Williams Capital Properties Silent Auction + Grand Opening Event
ReCreative Spaces is now accepting submissions for a gallery show and silent auction as part of the Keller Williams Capital Properties (KWCP) Grand Opening and introduction of the CPMG Foundation. The overarching theme of the event is a sense of neighborhood, community, and partnership. This may or may not translate into the work submitted – they leave that up to each artist to determine.

This silent auction offers a unique opportunity for established artists and student artists from Jesse White’s 5th grade art class @ John Burroughs Elementary School to showcase work in a joint show. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the artists, will help to restore some of the art materials budget that was cut at John Burroughs Elementary School, and will also directly help fund the CPMG Foundation for future grant opportunities.

Instead of asking for a standard donation for auction items, artists will be paid 50% of the sale of their work, with the remaining 50% going directly to CPMG Foundation. In addition, KWCP has partnered with John Burroughs Elementary School in order to help raise funds to offset a budget cut for arts materials in all of their art classes. Sales of any student artwork will also be split 50/50 between the art department and CPMG Foundation.
