24th Annual 5 By 7 Show

Dear Artist,

You are invited to participate in the Twenty-fourth Annual 5 by 7 Show.
Please make one or two small works for us!

The Kleinert/James Center for the Arts 5 by 7 Show is one of Woodstock’s premier events, showcasing artists from the Hudson Valley and beyond. The show is open to ALL and we accept and display ALL submissions. Works are exhibited anonymously, a fun way to give equal voice to ALL—so, please only sign the back! 5 by 7 artworks are sold for $150 each. This is a major fundraising event for Byrdcliffe. By contributing a small work, you help to support our high-quality programming in the arts including exhibitions, artist talks, readings, curatorial discussions, performances, and more.
