For the past 26 years, Friends of Family Planning has put on an art show to benefit the Family Planning Clinic of Martha’s Vineyard. Last year’s event took place during Memorial Day weekend and over 120 artists displayed their work at the Agricultural Hall for the three day art show. This year’s event takes place again on Memorial Day weekend, from May 23 to 25.
But the planning begins now and Friends of Family Planning is looking for artists to submit their work to be included in the show. The deadline for applications is April 15.
Artists donate between 40 and 100 per cent of their sales to the cause, and in the past the show has included work from professionals to hobbyists in nearly every medium imaginable. Oil paintings, watercolors, photography, furniture, lamps, notecards, clothing and handmade paper were all in abundance last year. One artist even donated a handcarved table and chair set.
To submit work and download the application, visit their website. Applications will automatically be sent to all returning artists.
The event is the only major fundraiser for the Family Planning Clinic. For more information, call 508-693-2200, extension 132.
