Dear Artist,

You are invited to participate in Byrdcliffe’s Eighteenth Annual 5 by 7 Show—please make a small work for us!

Byrdcliffe’s 5 by 7 Show is one of Woodstock’s premier events, showing artists from the Hudson Valley and beyond. Works are hung in our Kleinert/James Center for the Arts and exhibited anonymously, a playful way to give equal voice to all—so, please only sign the back of your work! All 5 by 7’s are sold for only $100 each. The opening reception (to which all of this year’s contributing artists receive complimentary admission) is a true Woodstock happening; we had over 400 attendees last year. This is a major fundraising event for the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild; by contributing a small work you will help support our high-quality programming in the arts, including exhibitions and performances.

Guidelines for the exhibition:

–Work is due no later than FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2017, 5:00 PM
–Please limit the number of 5 by 7 works to two
–Artwork must be dry (and if framed, ready to hang). Wet paintings cannot be accepted, sorry!
–Final size must be 5 x 7 inches or 7 x 5 inches – including frame. Please do NOT put work in frames measuring 6 x 8, 8 x 10, etc. ALL MEDIA ACCEPTED! 5 x 7 shadowboxes are great for jewelry.
–Please do NOT write your name on the front of the work! Write on the BACK only: your name, address and email; also indicate the top of your work.
–Mail or drop off at: Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild (attn. Derin Tanyol), 34 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY 12498. Tuesday – Friday, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm | or Byrdcliffe Shop, 36 Tinker Street. Shop hours: Thursday – Sunday, 12:00 – 6:00 pm
The Preview Party is Friday, December 1, 5:00 – 7:00 pm; attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a 5 by 7 before the gallery opens to the public at noon on Saturday, December 2
–The price of admission to the Preview Party is $10 – free for this year’s 5 by 7 artists; artists’ spouses/partners/family members must pay…it’s a fundraiser! Free for children under 12.
–All work unsold by December 22, 2017 will be discounted to $50
–Artists are requested to pick up unsold work after the show closes, or to please include a self-addressed stamped envelope if you’d like unsold work mailed to you. You are of course welcome to resubmit it in subsequent years, but unfortunately we are unable to store it.

If you want us to mail you a 5 by 7 canvas board, please email or call us. You may also use your own equivalent sized surface. Please make sure to include your name, address, phone number, and email on the back of your work so we may thank you properly and inform you of the purchaser in the event your work sells.

Your participation makes a real difference to us. We very much look forward to seeing your 5 by 7 this year!

Very best wishes,
Derin Tanyol
