Green Kill is now welcoming submissions for the Itsy Bitsy Biennale.  

The Itsy Bitsy Biennale will be a summer exhibition of small works from June 16, 2016 until August 30, 2016. Summer is the busiest time of the year for the Hudson Valley in New York State. New works will be added to the walls as they arrive over the first month. The second month will present the full exhibition. Press releases will be sent out periodically to announce new submissions.

As an artist, you will benefit from multiple promotional outreach activities. Besides the consecutive press releases your work will be included on  Greenkill.org and Green Kill pages in Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, The Art Stack, PinterestTumblr, DeviantartGoogle+, VK, Blogger, Instagram and a growing list of social network sites. You will be in a show of international art and you can sell your work in a dynamic and progressive new public space for the arts. The full amount of the sale after small fee for Paypal processing will be yours. The costs to you is only the shipping to and from Green Kill and 15 dollars, which goes towards an on-going crowdfunding effort to sustain Green Kill for future activities which benefit artists, performers and educators.

Some Itsy Bitsy points.

Your work will be added to the exhibition when it arrives.  If return postage is not included, your art will have to be sent back C.O.D. There will be an opening for the Itsy Bitsy Biennale on Saturday, July 16 when it’s anticipated much of the work will have arrived and been added to the exhibition. There will be events scheduled in Green Kill during those months which will give the Itsy Bitsy Biennale more exposure.

If your work sells, the return postage you provide will be refunded. Sales by check will be passed on to you and then taxes are you concern. Payments by cash for card must be processed and so taxes will be withheld and processing feeds deducted. All sales will be final and the money will be passed on to artists as soon as any necessary Paypal or bank processing is completed and all artists will be noticed of sales.  People interested in seeing more of an artists work, will be communicated to the artists.

Artists who live near Green Kill can drop off their work at the gallery. The space is open 12-6 from Wednesday -Sunday. Off ours, ring the bell by the side door are send a text to 347-689-2323 in advance for coordination.
