D'Art for Art is Crooked Tree Arts Center's premier fundraising event that has been held each July for more than a decade. D'Art for Art is unique in that guests leave with an original work of art created by artists of local, regional and national acclaim. The proceeds from D'Art for Art help support the year-round programs of CTAC, including exhibitions, classes, school tours, and scholarships for youth. Learn more about the D'Art for Art event.

The success of this event largely depends on the generosity of our artists. This is the one time that we ask artists to donate their work. Otherwise, we work diligently to promote and create opportunities for our artists.  D’Art for Art is a two night event with 500 guests each evening comprised of both the resort and local community art patrons.  We hope that you will join us in our mission and donate a piece of your art in support of Crooked Tree Arts Center.

Benefits to donating artists:
All donating artists will be included in the D'Art Artists Catalog. The catalog began as an effort to further market our donating artists. We have received numerous stories by artists being contacted at a later date through the catalog, resulting in art sales. The full-color catalog includes your name, contact information, and gallery listings where your work is exhibited. 1,500 catalogs are printed and distributed annually. The catalog is given to each D'Art for Art guest, the Preview Night attendees, is posted on CTAC's website and in our galleries. You will receive a copy along with the name of the recipient of your artwork.

Donating artists are invited, along with a guest, to attend the Preview Wine Tasting on Wednesday, July 13, 2016. Guests will sample wines from a variety of vintners from California, Oregon, and Michigan, hors d’oeuvres from area chefs, meet the artists and preview all of the art for D’Art for Art. The wine tasting will be from 6:00 – 8:30 PM. You and your guest may arrive whenever it is convenient for you. All donated artwork must be original, framed and ready to hang (if applicable).

D’Art donating artists also receive:
  • Special “D’Art Artist” rates on any CTAC professional development lectures.
  • Two tickets to a Swirl of their choice for the 2016-17 season.
  • $25 discount when you sign up or renew your CTAC Artist Directory page
 
Minimum artwork value:
$300. CTAC and the D’Art for Art committee politely reserve the option to decline a donation of art. CTAC has a gift acceptance policy which offers both the donor and the organization a streamlined manner in which to accept and process non-monetary gifts.
