Love Alice Austen is a juried show of donated artwork that will be exhibited for one week and auctioned in a benefit for the Alice Austen House Museum. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, The Alice Austen House Museum along with the Parks Department are working to restore the museum’s beachfront park. Your donation will help this effort as we approach our new season of exciting programs and exhibitions.
We invite you to send us submissions of inspiring artwork in all disciplines, including photography, painting, sculpture, illustration, sound, ect. In this time of recovery, strong consideration will be given to the work that carries a theme of love, hope, beauty, renewal, and strength to offer the local community a show of positive works to move forward in 2013.
Jpegs of submission should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. By February 5th 2013.
File should be saved as jpegs, 1000px wide. Please do not send hi res files.
Please note: the work doesn’t not have to relate to Superstorm Sandy.
Accepted submissions should be ready to hang on the wall and artists are responsible for the delivery of the work. The museum is happy to help where possible.
