8 X 10 FUNDRAISER 2018
It’s time for the biggest PLATFORM event of the year, the 8X10 fundraiser!
Get your ticket and prepare yourself for a great party—and to leave said great party with some great art.
8 X 10 Draw and Party | 15 December | 7-12 PM
Artwork Preview | 13-15 December
Bridget Moser Artwork Raffle | 15 December | 9:30 PM
Limited number of 150 tickets | $20 each
Here’s how it works: Tickets are $50, and a ticket guarantees an artwork. When your ticket is drawn at random, you select a work of art from the wall. You might get called first, or last, or 25th, or 25th from last. You are, in essence, allowing the hand of fate to help curate your art collection (or pick out a great gift). It’s all so exciting and vaguely mystical! Just like the holiday season.
Always a popular event, always a fun night, and all proceeds go towards supporting PLATFORM’s Programming and Outreach initiatives.
Tickets are also available in the gallery office right up until the draw begins at 7:30.
PLATFORM is very fortunate that every year we have the support of an incredible group of (generous and talented) local and national contemporary artists willing to donate artwork for the event.

PLATFORM is pleased to offer a rare chance to own artifacts from Bridget Moser’s inimitable performance work! This special raffle is in conjunction with this our upcoming 8X10 fundraiser. Bridget Moser’s Artifacts from If You Have a Similar Story Keep it to Yourself will be raffled to raise funds for PLATFORM’s programming and outreach initiatives. The winner of this raffle walks away with two mounted c-prints each 24″x20″ in size. There are a limited number of 150 tickets for sale and sell for $20 each. Tickets can be purchased above or in the gallery. Please note that out-of-town purchasers are responsible for shipping, should they win the work.
To see the work in person, stop by the gallery office. Artifacts from If You Have a Similar Story Keep it to Yourself will be on display from now until the December draw date.
