The FAI BoD is Looking for Committee Members!


Interested in helping out year-round? You have a knack for growing and supporting our community in ways less related to our events? You want to help out but can't because you live too far from the action? This is a great opportunity for you!

ART INSTALLATION REGISTRATION IS OPEN


Bringing an art project to this year's Alchemy? Art installation registration is now open! Registering your art project is not required, but with registration comes advantages galore! Follow this link to start the registration process: Art installation registration form.

Registering your art project will allow it to be labeled on a large map that can be found at Connexxus. Participants will be able to hunt your project down and shower it with "ooohs!" and "aaahhh!" and "what possibly could have been going through their head when the built that?!" Our Photography Team will know where to find your project while they're out doing their photography thing. Registration also allows you to choose your preference on where you'd like your project to be at the burn. Like theme camp placement, nothing is 100% guaranteed, but being able to work with the Art Team and Placement Team to get your project where you want it is a far cry from a battle royale-esque first-come-first-serve throwdown! We will do our absolute best to get your project exactly where you want it.

Art project registration is open to any participant bringing an art project, regardless of whether it was self-funded or funded through the Alchemy Art Fundraiser.

The Art Team would like to remind you that if your project is with a theme camp, then registering your project is NOT a substitute for registering your theme camp. Please do both! Art project registration and theme camp registration are two separate processes. Further, if your art project utilizes amplified sound in any way, then you must register your project separately from the Art Project Registration: Sound and Theme Camp Registration.

Does your art project in any way utilize open flames? Do you plan to burn your project? Then you need to talk with fire safety regardless of whether or not you register your project. Talk to them pronto by emailing firesafety@alchemyburn.com.

Schwag/Gate/Ticket Design Callout


Hey Alchemists!

The 2014 Alchemy Events Committee is looking for artists to design this years schwag and gate design.  Do you have a creative bone in your body?  Even if you just have a creative hair, we’d love to see your submission.  Consider this: the person who designs the schwag and the gate sign gets to have their art seen and worn by everyone at Alchemy.  



Schwag Design Information:

The design needs to have defined lines.

The design needs to be able to be in a format that can be read by most CAD software, if possible.  If not, we will work with you to make that happen!

If your design is a drawing, keep in mind the design will go on a piece of metal a little larger than a quarter.

If your design is an actual shape, not just a drawing, that’s ok!  Just keep in mind sharp edges flatten air mattresses.  

Keep the Alchemy 2014 theme in mind!: Tabula Rasa: the Blank Slate.  Art incorporating the theme is best.

 

Gate Design information:

A preliminary sketch all the way up to a professional drawing is acceptable.  If your design is accepted, you will have a budget to create this design!  You will then transfer that design in your preferred medium, whether it be painting onto a smooth finish large piece of wood and coating it with sealant, or a printed banner - whatever method you’d like to use, please make sure it’s weatherproof on the off chance we have inclimate weather.  Again, please keep the theme of Tabula Rasa in mind.  

 

To submit your design, please fill out this form: Form

Please submit your design by the deadline, which is 08/01/2014

If you have any questions, please email: art@alchemyburn.com

Service Dog Registration


In order to bring a service animal onto the property for Alchemy it MUST be registered. All unregistered service animals will be turned away at the gate.

Art Fundraiser Update: Online is LIVE & Event Stats


The 2014 Alchemy Art Fundraiser was a HUGE SUCCESS.  A fantastic time was had with 27 of our artists representing projects that peaked our interest and captivated all of us.  Even more art projects will be involved in the Online Fundraiser.  Many thanks to all the submitting artists who have worked so hard so far, but the job isn’t quite over yet.  We can’t wait to see what you bring to Alchemy this year!

 

Didn’t make the physical fundraiser?  Perhaps you did, and you want to give your favorite projects MORE MONEY!  Or hey, what about those projects that didn’t make the physical fundraiser.  Wanna see those?!  The Online Fundraiser is happening right now and ends July 4th!  Go Go GO!

 

Numbers and Gratitude

We had 231 unique ballots, so that’s 231 participants through the Gate who were invested in voting!  Those 231 Participants donated $4,196.00 total for an average ballot amount of $18.16. We raised an additional $675.00 through the Live Auction, which means we raised a total of $4,871.00!  That’s more than we’ve ever raised before! Great job, everyone!

 

Big appreciation goes out to the artists who donated to the auction:  Michelle Waymire, Susan & Parker of Kittybear Hoops, Rebecca Scott of the Giving Bunnies,  Kelly McGuire, Ash Monogue, Jay & Becca of Forged Creations, Ryan Petty, Serenity River, and Violet of the Deathcar.  These artists donated not just their art, but their time to make that art, and support other Alchemy artists in the process.  Thank you all so much for your gifts, and to those who bid on auction items! We hope you love whatever you scored.

To the wonderful volunteers who pulled extra time and helped bust out this great event:  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Annnnnd now, numbers!  Remember, this is only the tally for the physical event last night.  Much fundraising still to be done in the Online Art Fundraiser! Please look forward to it!

Want to see how the Online Fundraiser is going? Clicky!

We apologize profusely to those who weren’t in attendance and eagerly awaiting online feed.  The space was too crowded and noisy to do successful interviews, though we tried.  Any artist who wishes can make their own video for the online portion. These videos will be posted on each project’s Online Fundraiser page as well as to this YouTube playlist.
