Add to Favorites Report Listing

What Makes this event different?

The 6x6 art call is free and open to anyone and everyone, and not just to those who define themselves as professional artists! All artworks will be accepted and displayed anonymously June - July. An online component and in-gallery exhibition allows people to purchase artworks in support of RoCo for $20 each. We find that 6x6 is an accessible way for artists to participate in a fun exhibition in Rochester, NY without a lot of commitment or restrictions! It is a great opportunity for those artists who are looking to try new creative techniques which may differ from their typical practice.

Copyright Policy

Copyright belongs to the artist upon creation and remains as such regardless of the buyer. It is important to include contact information with your piece so that the buyer can contact you.
