INTRODUCING SUNSET ORANGE!
We are pleased to introduce the tenth in our series of Custom Oil Colors: Sunset Orange! Sunset Orange was manufactured by Gamblin Artist Colors specifically for Pygmalion’s, in partnership with Wet Paint Art Materials & Framing. Designed by local artist Mark Blaney, and formulated by Gamblin, Sunset Orange is available in 37ml tubes for only $8.95 per tube. Fashion statement pins are only 25 cents each, and t-shirts are coming soon! As we have done for all of our past Custom Colors, all proceeds from sales of Sunset Orange merchandise benefit a local non-profit organization. This year’s recipient will be the Indiana University School of Art, Architecture, and Design Visiting Artist lectures.
We are continuing our tradition of holding a one night art show featuring the year’s Custom Color. This year’s Wednesday Night Art Show with Sunset Orange will be Wednesday, April 24, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. For one night only, we display works of art made with Sunset Orange all around the store. Prizes are awarded by an outside juror, and all are invited to view the wonderful artwork.
CALL FOR ENTRIES: We invite you to purchase a tube of Sunset Orange for just $8.95. Use it in a work of art, in any way that you would like, and submit your artwork to our WEDNESDAY NIGHT ART SHOW! Your work of art does not need to display Sunset Orange color in an obvious way. As long as you used the color in making the work it is eligible for submission.
Artwork in any tangible art medium may be submitted. Painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, book arts … creative uses of Sunset Orange are welcome!
You are welcome to offer your work for sale, but are not required to do so. Artists offering their work for sale have the option of donating 10% of the purchase price to the Indiana University School of Art, Architecture, and Design Visiting Artist lecture series. Pygmalion’s does not take a commission on sales.
This year's WEDNESDAY NIGHT ART SHOW will be Wednesday, April 24, from 5-8 p.m. To enter your Sunset Orange artwork in our show please bring it to the store by TUESDAY, APRIL 23 at 6:00 p.m. We encourage artists living outside of the local area to participate in the show! Please send us your artwork made with Sunset Orange so that we receive it by Tuesday, April 23. If it does not sell at the show Pygmalion’s will cover the cost of return shipping.
If you have any questions please give us a call at (812) 332-0025, send us an email here, or stop by the store!
