Postcards for Lindsay: February 1, 2008
On February 1, 2008 Corporate & Museum Frame at 301 West Broad Street will be hosting a very special, month-long art exhibit and sale titled Postcards for Lindsay. All sale proceeds will go to help Lindsay Aronson Ess and her family with medical and rehabilitation expenses.
Local (and not so local) artists will be donating unframed pieces in 3 specific sizes: 4 x 6, 8.5 x 11, and 11 x 14 - they may donate one or more, in any of those sizes. These might be existing pieces, or created specially for the event. Paintings, drawings, photography, collage: these will be original works by both well-knowns and unknowns. 4 x 6 will sell for $25 each, 8.5 x 11 for $35 and 11 x 14 for $50.
Signatures will be on the back: you won't know who the piece is by until you've bought it. That's part of the fun! Every buyer will get a wonderful work of art at a remarkable price; some will walk away having made a surprisingly valuable purchase. But each sale will be worth far more than simply the value of the art itself, as 100% of the proceeds will go to help Lindsay and her family.
The show will be up through the month of February and we hope to sell as many as 200 to 300 pieces. Preview Open House/Gallery Reception will be Thursday, January 31 from 7PM to 9PM with the official opening on Friday, February 1 (First Friday!) from 7PM to 10PM. Mark your calendars, stop by and plan to purchase a great piece of art for a great cause! (Purchases can be made by cash or checks made to Love of Lindsay; sorry, no credit cards.) If you are an artist who would like to donate work, please go to www.corporatemuseumframe.com for information and a donation form.
It's a really good cause and sounds like a great event. I hope you'll all consider submitting a piece.
