300 Plates Fundraiser and Exhibition


Kelie Hess, 2019 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 11x10-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. After the fundraiser at The Gateway, the plates are hung in the Art Access Gallery for a month-long exhibition, creating a kaleidoscope of one-of-a-kind artwork.
