Donate an Artwork to Over the Top

Over the Top! 2017

Thank you for considering an artwork donation to MAWA's Over the Top Art Auction and Cupcake Party! 

We could not hold this important fundraiser without support from artists like you.

 

HOW CAN I DONATE?
If you want to donate an artwork, please email Alison at info@mawa.ca to let us know.  Then fill out an artist contract and drop off your work on one of the drop off times listed below. 

WHERE AND WHEN CAN I DROP OFF MY WORK?
We accept submissions at MAWA, 611 Main St. 

  • 10 am – 6 pm Wed. Feb 21, Thurs. Feb 22 & Fri. Feb 23 
  • 6:30 – 8:30 pm Mon. Feb 26
  • 10 am – 8:30 pm Wed. Feb 28 
  • 10 am – 6 pm Thurs. Mar 1 & Fri. Mar 2

Artworks can also be mailed, at the artist's expense, to MAWA, 611 Main Street Winnipeg, MB R3B 1E1

If we do not receive your artwork by March 2 by 6pm, we may not be able to include your work in the auction. If none of these times work for you, contact MAWA’s office at 204-949-9490. 

HOW MANY PIECES CAN EACH ARTIST DONATE?
MAWA will happily accept one artwork per artist.

WHAT KIND OF WORK DO YOU ACCEPT?
Artists are asked to donate one piece of art in any media. 

CAN ONLY WOMEN PARTICIPATE?
No! We welcome all adult artists to participate in Over the Top! We regret we cannot accept children’s work, but kids are more than welcome to munch on the cupcakes on the day of the auction.

DO I HAVE TO SUBMIT ANYTHING WITH MY WORK?
Please fill out a MAWA contract and submit it with your artwork. This allows us to keep track of your work, hang or install according to your instructions, and title accordingly. You can fill out a contract at MAWA when you drop off your submission, or you can download a contract here. When you drop off your donation, we will give you a complimentary ticket to the event (ticket has no cash value).

WILL I RECEIVE A TAX RECEIPT?
Yes! Those artists whose works are sold will receive a charitable tax receipt. Charitable tax receipts will be issued for the amount the work sells for at the auction.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WORK DOESN'T SELL?
In the event that a work doesn't sell MAWA will contact the artist the Wednesday or Thursday following Over the Top to let the artist know when they can pick up their piece. We so appreciate all contributions to Over the Top no matter the outcome!
