TINY ART SHOW
We invite each artist registered for the show to participate in our Tiny Art Show. We'll supply the 4" x 4" canvas (or canvases if you'd like to do more than one) and you supply the talent. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each tiny work will go directly to Sunset Vision to fund our latest community project. 

​​​Sunset Vision offers anyone the opportunity to show their work at our annual art show and sale.The central theme for the 2019 exhibit is Coastal Visions. We invite artists from North Carolina, South Carolina, and beyond to challenge and inspire the way we see our beautiful coastal surroundings, whether through geography, people, personal, historical, or otherwise. 


Artists will create original works for submission for the show and sale. The work will hang for 3 days in Triple D's Hemi Haven, a private classic car showroom, with a fundraising reception on Friday, June 21, 2019. Art can also be viewed on Thursday, June 20, 2018 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm and on Saturday, June 22 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
