Wanted in Greenpoint: local art for good of the library

library artGreenpoint artists, your Brooklyn Public Library branch is calling. The Friends of Greenpoint Library are seeking local art to stock the library’s spring benefit: an art show and silent auction this Saturday, May 1. The show is called the Greenpoint 100, and the organizers are looking for 100 under-appreciated (or fully-appreciated) Greenpoint Gauguins to help line the walls. All you artists will get some love and maybe even a cash prize, and the library will get some much-needed support. Non-artists should stop by too and, you know, actually bid on something.

Works in all media are being accepted (maximum size is 11 x 14 inches), and all entries must be entered by April 30. But you have to be accepted first, so email thefriendsofgreenpointlibrary@gmail.com ASAP with your contact info and a JPEG of your work. The 11 am show will be judged by local gallery owners and cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Bidding for all items will start at $25. Check the BPL Website for more info.
