ART | "6x6x2015" 

The stars are aligning for the 8th annual fundraising "6x6" art show and sale. Well, the numbers are, anyway. The opening reception and artwork sale falls on Saturday, June 6. The event features thousands of 6-inch by 6-inch works of art donated by celebrities and commoners alike, the names of which remain anonymous until after their work is purchased. Artist names will be revealed online on July 3.

Rochester Contemporary Art Center (137 East Avenue) will hold the popular reception from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., with the $5 raffle for buyer positions numbers 1 through 20 taking place at 7:30 p.m. Purchasing for all other buyers opens at 8 p.m.

To participate in the artwork sale, purchase artwork buyer stickers ($20 each) during preview hours, June 1 to June 5, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. or at the gallery during normal gallery hours. There's a $10 admission fee on opening night, and a $2 admission fee during regular hours. Rochester contemporary is open Wednesday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday, noon to 10 p.m.

You can preview all of this year's artworks before the show opens at, and in the gallery during the aforementioned preview hours. Global online purchasing begins June 9 at 10 a.m. The show remains on view through July 12, but unsold artwork will remain available for purchase online, along with unsold works from previous years.
