As many of you reading this are probably aware, yours truly has a fondness for fur kids. This is especially true of cats. For this reason I feel compelled to pass along that BARC is seeking donations of art for their upcoming fundraiser. Julie writes:
Just to confirm, the event is scheduled for Monday, September 13th at My Two Dogs, 434 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222 (718-963-0400).
The time will be from 7 PM until approximately 10 PM. Any artwork that artists would like to donate can be dropped off at BARC Shelter, 253 Wythe Ave, or I can arrange to pick it up. BARC hours are Tues-Sat from 12-5.
The event is free for people who just want to attend. If someone wants to bring home a piece of artwork they’ll donate $250 and they’ll select the piece they want (names of all the people who donate $250 go into a jar and are picked at random- first name picked selects first and so on).
I have been advised that any and all artists donating work should attach a piece of paper to their work with the following information:
- their name
- their email address (NOTE: this is for BARC’s purposes only.)
- name of the piece (if there is one)
- media used in the piece
The deadline for submissions is September 1st, so any and all interested in submitting work should get hustling!
September 13, 2010 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.
