ABOUT THIS PROJECT :Our second project with Hudson Headwaters has two rounds of selection. All artwork submitted through the call for artists will be presented to Hudson Headwaters’ staff for a first round of selection. Hudson Headwaters will select approx. 100 works from the first-round to include in a final catalogue that will be presented to supporters attending their Hudson Headwaters’ Community Champions Celebration on September 22, 2019. Event guests will then be encouraged to sponsor (purchase) artwork for the Champlain Family Health Center, their Ticonderoga Health Center, or make a charitable contribution to Hudson Headwaters and purchase the work for themselves. Event proceeds benefit Hudson Headwaters’ vital mission: “To provide the best health care, and access to that care, for everyone in our communities”. The commission on artwork sales helps Saratoga Arts continue to offer a wide-variety of programming, exhibition and sale opportunities for artists, and helps us fulfill our mission of ensuring the arts are accessible to all.
