* OPEN CALL! * WANT TO PARTICIPATE? We are holding an open call for artists. There is no submission fee. Each artist may submit up to three pieces for consideration. In order for this to be a successful fundraiser, we have strict guidelines. Please read all of the following information carefully!

There is no formal size limit, but when choosing what to submit, remember: we are trying to fill the walls with as much art as possible. 

Keep your submission SIMPLE! You may include a sentence or two about the work, but do not send excessive explanations. Additionally, when submitting, tell us the artist’s name, title of the piece, dimensions, media, year, and the price of the work. All work in the show must be for sale. (It’s a fundraiser. Price to sell!) Send your submission(s) to onegrand.pdx@gmail.com.

Please do not submit your work unless you can drop off and pick up your work during the designated times. Artists who do not pick up unsold work by September 11 will be charged $10 per piece. We are primarily looking for art that can hang on the walls rather than occupying floors or shelves.

50% of all art sales will be donated to RAICES, and the artists may keep 50%. Artists are welcome (and encouraged) to donate more than 50% to RAICES if they would like.

In addition to artists, One Grand is seeking volunteers and sponsors for the event. 

We have already secured most of the musical lineup, but musicians who are interested in volunteering a performance are welcome to send us a link to their music for consideration.
