ARTMAIL FOR SHUT-INS
Covid-19 is hanging out like an awkward unwanted house guest but that's okay, because there's ART! Beginning way back in March we began a little show called "ARTMAIL FOR SHUT-INS" and it's proved so popular that we are now looking for more artwork to continue it online and in -person until 2021.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BRINGING SOME HAPPINESS TO MAILBOXES ALL AROUND THE WORLD WITH YOUR ART and making a few dollars while at it, read on:
Submit any works on paper that can fit in an envelope that we can send easily in the mail to their new homes! We have received many different sizes and have even received a few works on small canvas panels. Any mediums are accepted and all skill levels and ages! Each work is sold for $20 each, with the commission shared between the artist and the gallery. We photograph all the works and showcase the entire show online as well as rotate an on-going in-person show of works too.
SUBMIT jpegs of your art as well as your contact info, and details about each of the works you are submitting to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we have connected that way, we will ask you either to drop off the works to the gallery located at 1559 Barrington Street, Wednesday- Saturday 11am-5:30pm or send in the post to: A.Afford, 6302 Young Street , Halifax, NS, B3L 1Z8 .
