The Ann Arbor Art Center is seeking handmade works of art for the 3rd annual Art Off the Wall holiday exhibition. Art Off the Wall is designed to give patrons the opportunity to purchase original, handmade works of art as holiday gifts or to add to their personal art collection. Artwork is purchased directly “off the wall” for a fun and festive shopping experience.

All artwork mediums are welcome, including painting, jewelry, sculpture, ceramics, photography, prints, glass and textiles. Artwork is NOT required to be holiday themed.

A $25 entry fee entitles each artist to submit up to five images. Images may represent a single artwork, five individual artworks, or a collection of the artist's small work. Only credit or debit card payments will be accepted. No cash or checks, please.
