The Colonie Art League is happy to be hosting a virtual fundraising event titled “Art for a Cause”. The goal is to raise money for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY. This will be accomplished by donating all proceeds from the artwork that is sold, plus a $25 match by CAL per painting. To start, CAL is asking our members to donate artwork in any medium and any size with the theme of “FOOD”. You may submit a picture of your artwork on the CAL website from July 15th through August 10th.
Many individuals in our community have been impacted by this pandemic. Art for a Cause is an opportunity for our members to help those in need.
If you have any questions, call Dee Foley at 518-727-1228.
ART FOR A CAUSE DETAILS/GUIDELINES:
The “Art for a Cause” will be on our website from August 15 through September 15. There is no entry fee for this show.
The donated artwork shall be labeled with the artist’s name, title of the piece, medium used, size and price (maximum $100). Please price your artwork so it will sell quickly. Entering your artwork is as easy as completing the clickable entry form and attaching a photo of your work.
The submission period is July 15th through August 10th. Each member may submit more than one piece of artwork, but each piece needs to be on a separate entry form.
All participants must be CAL members. However, if you are not a member, but wish to donate artwork, one may do so by just completing and remitting the membership form found on this website. The artwork may be any size. Watercolors, pencil drawings, etc., if not framed, must be matted; oils and acrylics, if not framed, must be painted on all edges.
To purchase artwork: Starting on August 15th, call Dee Foley at 518-475-9132 to discuss payment either using PayPal or check and to arrange for receiving the artwork. Please note that if the artwork cannot be delivered locally, and must be shipped, the buyer will be responsible for the cost of shipping.
We hope that many CAL members will participate in this show.
