ALL IN

Over the years, HP Galleries has developed into one of the top contemporary exhibition spaces in the Truckee Meadows, exhibiting work by local, national, and international artists of all ages. In order to maintain this high level of exhibition programming (and build on it), it is important that the gallery continues to become a more self-sustaining piece of the bigger Holland puzzle. With that in mind, HP Galleries is excited to announce the 6th bi-annual ALL IN gallery fundraiser, a pop-up exhibition scheduled for October 15, 2021. The goals of ALL IN are two-fold:

1) Raise money for the gallery. As a non-profit entity, fundraising is always going to be a crucial part of the success of the organization. This fundraising effort, as with other Holland fundraising events, will hopefully raise not only money but also awareness of and interest in what is happening at HP, which brings us to the second goal…

2) Present a snapshot of the artists who are actively contributing to the visual arts side of Holland, from those who have recently exhibited in the space to those who help out behind the scenes. Because art shows typically run 5-6 weeks, there are far fewer exhibition opportunities in a given year than there are music performance opportunities, for example. For this reason, many of the people who have helped to make the art and gallery arm of Holland what it is may not actually get a chance to exhibit their work in the space. This show is our chance to present an exhibition that shows what all of the makers in our community within a community (hence, “ALL IN”) are up to.

This is where you come in! If you’ve received this invitation, it is because you are one of the artists who has helped define the character of HP Galleries, and we would like you to be a part of this exhibition. As this show is also a fundraiser, we are asking for artwork donations from the participating artists, with 100% of the proceeds from artwork sales going towards the Gallery.

Thank you so much for your time and all the love and support you’ve given Holland Project! ALL IN is a very special to us and we love to see our community come together in this way. Additional nuts-and-bolts details for the exhibition are below.

– Please accept or decline your invitation by JULY 16th, please feel free to email Alberto, Alisha, or Alana to confirm and if you have any questions!

– All artwork will need to be delivered to The Holland Project at 140 Vesta Street by OCTOBER 1st. Can be dropped off or mailed to 122 Ridge Street, Ste B, Reno NV 89501. The galleries are always open Tues-Fri 12-6PM.

– The exhibition reception and fundraising event will be on OCTOBER 15th, times TBA.

– Rather than a silent auction, the artwork will be sold on a first-come-first-serve basis on the night of the closing reception and all artwork will be priced at $50 or $100, and the participating artists are encouraged to donate artwork that they feel comfortable being sold at that price point.
