The Ink People’s Tuxford Gallery recently put out a challenge to its membership to create 15 original works of art in just one month.

Thirty entry forms arrived, and the participating artists set off to start their paintings, sculptures, collage, beading, poems and more.

The results of this challenge — adding up to some 400 works — can be viewed Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. during Arts Alive! at 525 Seventh St. in Eureka.

“It’s an ‘Off the Wall’ fundraiser,” said show curator Kati Texas. “If you buy a piece, you get to take it right away.”

Two-thirds of each sale will go to support the Ink People’s Community Art Projects and free programs for at-risk youth.

Each artist chose one of four sizes, and had to make all of their entries in that size. Then, each size sells for a set price between $20 and $75.

The works will be available at the Ink People through Dec. 8.
