D'Art for Art is Crooked Tree Arts Center's premier fundraising event that is held each July. 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, scholarships for youth, and so much more. 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 resort and local community art patrons. We hope you will join us in our mission and donate a piece of your art in support of Crooked Tree Arts Center!
** Please note - the artwork is a donation! We do NOT auction your artwork off at our event. **
Benefits to donating artists:
Donating artists are invited, along with a guest, to attend the Preview Wine Tasting on Wednesday, July 18, 2018. Guests will sample wines from a variety of California, Oregon, and Michigan vintners, enjoy hors d’oeuvres from area chefs, and meet the artists while previewing 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 two (2) tickets to a Swirl of their choice for the 2018-19 season.
Minimum artwork value:
We ask that your artwork have a minimum value of $300. This minimum value ensures our patrons and guests receive quality, as well as original, works of art. 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.

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 a list of galleries (up to, and no more than three) where your work is exhibited. 1,500 catalogs are printed and distributed annually. The catalog is given to each D'Art for Art guest and Preview Night attendee, and is also posted on CTAC's website and available in our galleries.
