CALLING ALL ARTISTS! An invitation to CREATE & DONATE!
Apr 14, 2020 @ 8:00 am - May 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Artists Work from Home for Families without a Home
Like everyone, Artists are home. You are creating art in your studios, on your kitchen tables, wherever and whenever you can.
Now, While Apart… Artists Are Coming Together Virtually… Showing Love.
To share this “Art While Apart,” ArtSpace is creating an exhibition called “Small Works from Big Hearts.” At first, it’s online only. But when things become safer, we will exhibit the works “in real life.”
At HomeFront’s ArtSpace, we know that creating art has many benefits – calming the troubled spirit, lifting one’s mood, focusing the mind, and inspiring hope. At this time when we are all practicing “social distancing,” art is a refuge, now more than ever. HomeFront families residing at the Family Campus are also creating tons of artwork!
We are inviting you to join with ArtJam artists and HomeFront artists to support Homefront’s ArtSpace during this challenging time. While Apart… Artists Are Coming Together Virtually… Showing Love.
The works, which are donated to HomeFront, will be for sale and 100% of proceeds will benefit HomeFront’s ArtSpace programs.
SUBMISSIONS: Accepted now through May 8, 2020.
You can check out the ongoing sneak peak of submissions all month.
On May 10th the complete exhibition goes live at www.artjamnj.org
We hope the artwork uplifts you in some way and maybe inspires your own creativity in these uncertain times. Stay safe.
