The Four by Four for Education has become an annual tradition in the Lowell arts community. This year about 140 artists are participating.
Who Benefits: The Four by Four raises funds for the Brush Scholarship and Special Perspectives. A $1000 scholarship is granted to a deserving UMass Lowell art student. Special Perspectives programming brings art instruction to challenged adults.
The Brush provides a blank, stretched canvas. We ask visual artists to create one 4 inch by 4 inch work of art. Artists create whatever they wish with whatever media and materials they like. Artists then donate their work to the gallery for the exhibit and event.
The Raffle Event
: Guests buy tickets on March 30th and leave with a work of art. Names are drawn at random and your place in line is determined by the drawing. Tickets are $25 and are purchased at the door. No tickets will be sold in advance.
As an added attraction, UMass Lowell Faculty artwork will be on display in conjunction with the Four by Four exhibit from Mar 9 to April 20
. Faculty who are exhibiting recent work: Ellen J. Wetmore, Hanna Melnyczuk, Deborah A. Santoro, Michael Roundy, Laurel McMechan, Yuko Oda, Jennifer Houle, Padmini Chandrasekaran, Melissa Schrenker, Stephen Mishol, Samnang Riebe, Mary Robbins, Meghan Ambra, and Markus Haala.
It's a pleasure to have faculty work here during the same time period as our Four by Four for Education fundraiser -- it's basically two exhibits in one and it reinforces our relationship with UMass Lowell.
