300 Plates Registration

2018 300 Plates Fundraiser and Exhibition 300 PLATES 2018 Thurs day, May 17, 2018, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM 2018 REGISTRATION DATES: VIP Registration will open on April 17, 2018 General Registration will open on April 24, 2018 All Registration will close on May 11, 2018 What is 300 Plates? 300 Plates is the annual Art Access fundraiser and exhibition. This signature event, first hosted in May 2003, presents unique artwork that is both affordable and highly collectible, created by approximately 160 established and emerging artists from the local community. Using 11 x 10-inch plates (tempered panel or plexiglass), each artist prepares small works in their recognizable style. Finished plates include everything from landscape to assemblage to pop art to photography and more. During the fundraiser and month-long exhibition the plates are hung in the Art Access Gallery, creating a kaleidoscope of one-of-a-kind artwork. This year -- for the first time ever -- we are holding the event OFF SITE in the beautiful Grand Hall at the Gateway (400 W South Temple). No more tents, standing outside in the cold (or rain), or long lines in hallways! Attendees will have more room to move around and party. It will be easier for everyone to hear, there will be more tickets available for sale, and we will have more opportunities for sponsor recognition. This year, we will have more than 400 plates from over 200 local artists, and for the first time ever--you can bring the plates you purchase home with you that night! All of our artists generously reverse the commission normally taken by our organization – i.e., they will receive 30% of plate sales and we will retain 70%. How can you participate? Plate previews are held prior to the event to provide art lovers and potential buyers with a sneak peek of the artwork. On the evening of the event during the preview hours, culinary delights, beverages, and music are enjoyed and each patron is issued one colored wristband in anticipation of the sale. Beginning at 7:00 PM, and every few minutes thereafter, a random color is announced until all wristband colors have been called. Those patrons are invited to enter the gallery and purchase one plate each. Plate prices start at $85 and increase sequentially in one-dollar increments. This year, approximately 6 artists' plates will be set aside for a blind silent auction, selling from $400 – the sky's the limit. Plates that do not sell on the night of the event may be purchased at Art Access during regular business hours throughout the exhibition. Interested in becoming a SPONSOR for this event?

Declutter Drive at the Ogden Restore

In celebration of Earth Day, the Habitat Ogden ReStore is kicking off their Declutter Drive all month long in April. Spring is coming, which also means that Spring cleaning is essential in most homes. The Declutter Drive is to challenge residents to donate items to the ReStore rather than throwing them into the dump. In celebration of Earth Day (April 22nd), the Declutter Drive will hopefully bring awareness to residents in Weber and Davis Counties about the nonprofit ReStore. Home improvement Items can be donated to a nonprofit thrift store rather than putting them in the landfill. The Habitat Ogden ReStore offers a free pick-up service for residents in Weber and Davis Counties. This can be helpful for those who have large items, including furniture, appliances, lumber, and so much more. A donation receipt will be given for IRS tax-deductible purposes. Drop-off donations are acceptable from Tuesday thru Saturdays from 10 AM to 5:30 PM. The Habitat ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement thrift store and donation center. It is operated and affiliated with the local Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties (HabitatWD). The goal is to keep good and working home improvement items out of the landfill. The donated items are sold at a fraction of the cost to the general public. Proceeds from sales go back towards HabitatWD. The funds are used for building and repairing homes for local low-income families in need. The Ogden ReStore is located at 3111 Wall Avenue Ogden UT 84401. Operating hours are Tuesday thru Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM. For the year 2017, it was calculated that the local Habitat Ogden ReStore diverted over 303 tons of items from the landfill. This is the equivalent to the weight of 30 box trucks. Items that can be donated include appliances, artwork, building materials and lumber, cabinets, 2013 or newer dishwashers, doors, electrical items, new flooring, furniture, hardware, LED TVs, lighting, new paint, plumbing, tools, and windows. For more information, please visit the site. Anyone can shop. Anyone can donate. And anyone can volunteer at the local Ogden ReStore. The Declutter Drive will begin April 1st and end on April 30th. When you donate to the nonprofit Habitat ReStore in April, you will receive a $5 coupon to use before May 1st. You can schedule your free pick-up now or drop-off your unwanted home improvement items today. Call the ReStore at 801-393-3287.
