ANNUAL “5 by 7” SHOW – HOLIDAY FUNDRAISER
In its nineteenth year, Byrdcliffe’s annual 5 by 7 Show will be on view from December 8 through January 6, 2019. This year’s Preview Party is on Friday December 7; doors open at 5:00 pm, though crowds are known to start lining up early in the afternoon in order to have the first shot at the best artworks on view. Every year the 5 by 7 Show brings in hundreds of artists from the Hudson Valley and beyond, who donate artwork to be sold for $100 each. The 5 by 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, Henrietta Mantooth, Portia Munson, 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 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 Friday, December 21.
