The 9 x 12 Works on Paper Show was inaugurated in December of 2005 as an inexpensive exhibition opportunity for artists worldwide and as filler for the galleries during a traditionally slow month. That year, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center received over 900 small works of art through the mail. It was such a success for the artists and the Arts Center that we have continued to hold the exhibition every December, and it is no longer a slow month, as patrons and art collectors discover this treasure-trove of small art.
The artwork for this exhibit may be any size, as long as it is on or of paper and can be mailed in a 9” x 12” envelope. This year’s exhibit features artwork from most of the United States and several other countries. Artists of all ages have responded with small original paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, collages and other works on or of paper. All artwork is on sale for $100, and the artists will receive 80% of every sale they make.
