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.

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.

Who benefits?

Art Access provides accessible and inclusive arts and cultural opportunities to many people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate, as well as equal opportunity for established and emerging artists with and without disabilities in a nurturing and supportive environment. Funds from the annual 300 Plates fundraiser and exhibition allow Art Access to offer programming throughout the year, including: education and engagement with art to special needs children and others in Utah schools; the elderly and other institutionalized individuals or those participating in community social services programs; teens with disabilities, those who are at-risk or are otherwise underserved, and young people in the mainstream; youth and adults living in rural areas of the state; emerging and established artists with and without disabilities; and the community at large. Over the years Art Access has demonstrated that its philosophy and programs are successful in uniting and strengthening the community through art.
