South Street Gallery of Greenport has issued a Call for Artists for its annual "Postcards for 88.3 WPPB" benefit exhibition and art sale to be held at the gallery in July.
Participating artists will create an artwork on a complimentary 5 x 7 inch card stock or a self-provided one to benefit 88.3 WPPB, Long Island's only NPR Station. Artists can submit up to three artworks. Registration is open to all artists. There is no fee to participate.
Submission Deadline: June 26, 2016
Artists are asked to create work on complimentary 5 x 7 inch card stock, available at the South Street Gallery, or submit work on their own 5 x 7 surface. Art work should be signed on the back ONLY.
One of the unique aspects of the "Postcards for 88.3 WPPB" benefit art exhibition is all the artworks are purchased without the identity of the artist discovered until after the purchase.
The mystery aspect of the sale encourages the discovery of artists that may be unknown to the purchaser. It also fosters dialogue at the benefit art sale on the possible identities of artists contributing works for sale and the artist who may have made the anonymous work exhibited in the art sale.
All art works will be sold for $50 to benefit 88.3 WPPB.
Registration deadline to participate is June 26, 2016. To register, click here.
Art work needs to be delivered by Sunday, June 26, 2016 at 6 p.m.
Art can be dropped off at South Street Gallery in Greenport or at 88.3 WPPB, 71 Hill Street, Southampton, NY. Art can also be mailed to The South Street Gallery, 18 South Street, Greenport NY 11944.
