RE: Horse Themed Art Show
We invite you to participate in a Horse Themed Art Show to be exhibited at CNY Artists Gallery in May and June. Any and all media are accepted, including mixed media. The show will be juried with selection based on artistic merit and relevance to the theme. The theme includes all aspects of horses and horse related activities.
The show will be held in conjunction with a fundraiser to benefit ReRun, a nonprofit Thoroughbred adoption program whose mission is to rehabilitate, retrain, and find loving, adoptive homes for Thoroughbred racehorses when their careers on the track are over. This national organization saves hundreds of race horses from slaughter each year. This fundraiser is to benefit our local chapter in Fulton, NY
To attract attention to the show and raise money for ReRun, Moneighs will be displayed for sale at the gallery. Moneigh®s are original artwork created by famous racing horses using their muzzle, tail and hooves. The word "Moneigh®" came from combining the name of the famous artist, Monet, and the sound that a horse makes, a neigh. Among the paintings to be displayed are work by Olympic Gold Medal jumper Carlsson vom Dach, The Funny Cide, winner of both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, and Cigar, ranked as one of the top US horse champions of the 20th century and inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. To learn more about ReRun and Moneighs, visit their website at www.rerun.org.
All horse themed art and Moneigh®s will be up for display and sale at CNY Artists Gallery in Shopping Town Mall, DeWitt, NY from May 7 through July 1, 2013. Advertising will include two months of prime time announcements on WRVO radio station, postings in local events magazines and newsletters, ads in horse trade magazines and newsletters, distribution of posters and postcards throughout Syracuse and surrounding areas, including local equine centers in Cazenovia and Morrisville.
Although this is a fundraiser for ReRun, SALE OF ANY OF YOUR ART WILL BE YOURS AND CNY ARTISTS AND NOT PART OF THE FUND RAISING ACTIVITIES. ReRun will appreciate any donations you would care to give. You will receive 70% of the sale of your artwork and CNY Artists will receive 30% during this promotion.
To submit your art for the jury process, please deliver your finished piece and completed application to CNY Artists, Shopping Town Mall, Erie Blvd, DeWitt, NY., no later than Saturday April 20th. If you have any questions, please contact either Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org, cell 315-391-5115 or Dorita at email@example.com.
We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to challenge your creativity, and participate in a worthy cause.
