Call for Artists

Attention artists of the Hudson Valley, we need your work, because New York needs your help. 

An art exhibition/fundraiser to help those devastated by Hurricane Sandy will be held on Saturday, December 22, at The Shirt Factory, 77 Cornell Street, Kingston, NY. Proceeds will benefit Craft Emergency Relief Fund + Artists' Emergency Resources (CERF+) and Occupy Sandy.

All works must be anonymous, but may be signed on the back. All artwork must be for sale. Submit up to three works of either Full Sheet (no larger than 8 1/2 x 11 inches, horizontal or vertical orientation) or Half Sheet (no larger than 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches) size. Full Sheet works will be sold for $100, Half Sheet works will be sold for $50. This will be a first-come, first-served, no haggling benefit. All artwork will be released to the purchaser that evening.

There will be no thematic constraints and any media will be accepted.

Three dimensional works may also be submitted and should measure no larger than 12 inches in any one dimension. All three dimensional works fall into the Full Sheet category and will be sold for $100 the night of the event.
