PLUS: SHOW US YOUR CHOTSKIES!
A silent auction of artists’ objects to run in conjunction with Inc. Squared
Tchotchke (/ˈtʃɒtʃkə/ CHOCH-ka)[ is a small bauble or miscellaneous item. Depending on context, the term has a connotation of worthlessness or disposability as well as tackiness, and has long been used by Jewish Americans and in the regional speech of New York City and elsewhere. –Wikipedia
Well, perhaps that’s a bit harsh! Artists love to accumulate objects of interest. Call them trinkets, talismans, treasures, ephemera, or what you will. They may be insignificant, they may be of the utmost importance, but there’s usually a reason they found their spot on the shelf. If you are an artist and have collected an object that you find interesting, obscure, inspirational, scandalous, or absurd, perhaps you’d like to share it with the world, or at least another person. Hamilton Artists Inc. is accepting donations of your chotskies! These objects will be lovingly displayed and sold by silent auction at our Inc. Squared event, to raise funds for Inc. programming. *Please bring your object and submission form to the gallery along with (or in place of) your foot-by-foot piece
Thank you in advance for your participation and support!
