ART + PRESERVATION
CALL FOR WORK
Painting for Preservation (P4P) will host its first show during the National Trust for Historic Preservation Conference in Buffalo, New York in October.
Two-dimensional entries relating to the themes of historic preservation, architecture, urban aesthetics, community or personal history in Western New York. All styles and interpretations are welcome. Submit by email to P4Partist@gmail.com by September 27.
The Private Opening for the show will be during reception of the National Preservation Conference on Wednesday, October 19, 2011. A Public Opening will happen soon after. The show will be juried by an independent voice if the number and size of submissions requires. There is no fee to enter but a 40% donation of any sales will go to help the renovation of the Statler Towers, a 1920's grand hotel, and our host.
PAINTING FOR PRESERVATION
P4P is a group of eclectic and inclusive artists and preservationists that gather at historic places to make art on-site. We create positive awareness of distressed and under-utilized buildings; we create a record of current building conditions through the artist's point of view; we spark new and innovative preservation opportunities. We are inspired by our historic urban environment.
