Art Loan Program

The seARTS art loan program is an opportunity for artists to display and sell their work in public locations and an opportunity for businesses and organizations to show their support for the arts, and enhance their surroundings with beautiful wall art. 

The program is now in its eighth year (2015).  The signature program began at Bass Rocks Golf Club and has been successful in exposing the work of 25-30 new and returning artists each year.  In total, nearly $17K worth of artwork has been sold off the walls of the Golf Club.  This year’s submissions deadline, March 28, has passed, and we are now closed to further submissions from applicants.

The 2015 Opening Reception is Thursday, May 28th,  at 6PM at Bass Rocks Golf Club.

Each new installation kick-offs with an opening reception and the artists’ work is promoted throughout the year.  Sold work is replaced.
