ANNUAL “5 by 7” SHOW – HOLIDAY FUNDRAISER
Every year the 5 by 7 Show, with this year’s Preview Party on Friday December 7, brings in hundreds of artists from the Hudson Valley and beyond, who donate artwork to be sold for $100 each. The 5 x 7 artworks are exhibited anonymously at Byrdcliffe’s Kleinert/James Center for the Arts: buyers buy for the pure love of an artwork rather than its perceived monetary value, and emerging artists are discovered. Of course if the purchased artwork is by one of the Hudson Valley’s art-world celebrities who regularly participate—Milton Glaser, Portia Munson, the Starn Twins, Joan Snyder—then that buyer has made an excellent investment! Every year the number of artworks donated and people crammed into the K/J’s high-energy 5 by 7 Show Preview Party goes higher and higher, demonstrating wide support for Byrdcliffe’s programming in exhibitions, artists’ residencies, classes, and more. Artwork purchased from the 5 by 7 show can be taken home as of Friday, December 21.
