A ‘meet-the-artist’ reception will be held on the evening of December 12 at 7pm in Gallery W-16. Guests will enjoy an evening of wonderful music, great food, and all attendees will take home an original piece of artwork, while supporting the Workhouse Arts Community. A live auction with spectacular gift baskets and other fabulous works will also take place at the Collector’s Showcase reception.
Artists that are chosen MAD! Artist of the Month will be exhibiting their work during the Collector’s Showcase and will be eligible for MAD! Artist of the Year People’s Choice Award. Visitors to the Workhouse will have the chance to act as critics and vote for their favorite artist beginning on November 25. The MAD! Artist of the Year will be announced at the Collector’s Showcase reception on December 12. The winning artist will be given the opportunity to have a solo show at the Workhouse in May, 2010.

The ticket price includes admission to the reception and a lottery to select one piece of original artwork from the designated collection.
