VISUAL ARTISTS & WRITERS: SOLSTICE WALL CALENDAR
We are creating a 2022-2023 solstice wall calendar works created by marginalized artists living or working in the Hudson Valley region. We will be working with a local graphic designer and local astrologer to help create the calendar’s contents. Each artist involved (24 total) will be offered a $50 honorarium for their work and the calendars themselves will help share their work with our community. The calendars will be printed in Hudson NY by ProPrinters, who is sponsoring our project. All funds raised through sales of the calendars will go toward future Celebrate845 programming- all of which prioritizes keeping participation costs minimal for artists, collaborating with like-minded venues and spaces, buying supplies locally, not taking commissions on sold artworks, paying collaborators, and circulating funds back into our community.
