Dear local artist,
The Mermaid Ball will be held Friday March 10 2017 from 6-10 pm at the Seaglass Festival Event tent located behind the Vets Hall.
This under the sea evening of fun will celebrate the 7 th annual Cayucos Seaglass Festival and will be a major fundraiser of the Cayucos Chamber of Commerce 4 th of July fireworks display.
We are including 25 willing artists who would like to submit an art creation to be auctioned off during the Mermaid Ball event with all proceeds benefitting the fireworks.
Here's how it works:
Interested artist will be given one 16x20 canvas on December 1 st 2016 to create an under the sea, mermaid, or ocean themed display. Any materials may be painted or applied to create your unique piece.
Canvases can be picked up at Happy Go Smile, a downtown business located at 36 No. Ocean Ave. Cayucos. Artists can use their own 16X20 canvas if unable to pick up.
The finished pieces will be delivered to Happy Go Smile on or before February 15 2017.
Each artist should return the form with a short biography of the artist and a brief description of the medium used. Also a " buy it now" dollar value.
Beginning March 1 st, as part of the community wide Mermaids in March Art Display, as many of the pieces as possible will be displayed at local businesses. The public will have the option to " buy it now" before the silent auction begins. All checks will be made to the Cayucos Chamber of Commerce to benefit the fireworks display or pay with credit card at Happy Go Smile.
March 10 th all the available pieces will be brought to the Event Tent to go up for sale at the Silent Auction during the Mermaid Ball.
Minimum bids will begin at $100. And raised at increments of $20.
The auction opens at 6 pm and closes promptly at 8 pm.
Any items not purchased will be returned to Happy Go Smile ready for pick up by the artists on the following Monday March 13th.
