 The Seventh Annual 6x6@110 project is underway!

Artists and members of the public are invited to participate in this award-winning event that involves creation of more than 500 canvases that portray a myriad of subjects in a wide variety of media. On June 6, the exhibit will open at 6 p.m. Each piece will be sold for $20, with all proceeds going to help fund the City of Tyler Main Street Department, which operates Gallery Main Street.

 The 2017  6x6@110 featured 700 works by hundreds of participants.

“Though we are a City of Tyler department, we do have to fundraise a good portion of our operational budget,” Rojas said. “We feel 6x6@110 is an excellent way to engage artists and the public in that mission while still furthering the arts downtown as well.”

The popular 6x6 project began in 2012 when an artist shared the idea with Main Street staff. The idea seemed to fit numerous goals of the gallery, so it was adopted...and has grown every year in terms of participation, popularity and financial success.

“We invite artists and members of the public to join us at these parties to create canvases that we will sell for $20 each to help raise funds for operation of Gallery Main Street, as well as its arts programming,” Rojas said. Part of the Main Street Department’s mission is to operate the gallery as well as programming such as gallery exhibits, public art and arts workshops. Rojas noted that though the parties are primarily geared toward adults. Only 150 6"x8" canvas will be available for artists under the age of 18 years old.  There is no cost to participate.

The project earned the distinction of receiving the Best Promotional Event award from the Texas Downtown Association. Opening date and time are always June 6 at 6 p.m.

Special credit for the success of 6x6@110 is project chairman Dace Lucia Kidd, a local artist who donates many hours of her time to see the project through.
