Art from the Heart to benefit American Red Cross Haiti Relief

Online Art Show:  Art from the Heart: A Benefit for the American Red Cross for Haiti Earthquake Relief

February’s big date on the calendar is St. Valentine’s Day. Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is going to be everywhere you look. Not one to buck tradition (at last not this time), EBSQ is presenting a heart-themed show–with a twist. Because the need in Haiti continues to mount, we’ve turned this show into a fundraiser for the American Red Cross’s earthquake-relief efforts. There will be a $10 fee per entry. Half will go to the Red Cross. The other half will go to the Member’s Choice Winner to be selected by YOU at the close of the show. In additon, EBSQ is encouraging show paticipants to donate part (or all) of any proceeds that come from the sale of your entries to the American Red Cross (or another charity working to aid Haitian earthquake victims), although this is purely optional.

All entries in Art for the Heart should be heart-themed and may be any media or combination of media that the artist chooses.

We strongly recommend all artists include in their statement information about why and how they chose to create their piece, as statements can enhance the experience for the online viewer. We also encourage you to include detail shots of your entries. This will allow the viewer to fully appreciate your work as small details can be lost in an online environment.

Eligible entries must meet all points of the prospectus. If you have any questions regarding the prospectus and its requirements, please send them to

Entry Instructions:

This show has special entry requirements

There is a $10 entry fee per piece entered and payable via our Chipin widget. $5 of each fee will go directly to the American Red Cross. The rest will go directly to the Member’s Choice winner which will be voted upon by registered site visitors between March 1-7 2010. All entrants which have not paid their fee by the end of February 2010 will have their work removed from the show.

  • Upload your art or search your artcase for the piece you’d like to enter. 
  • Select “enter show” from the pull-down menu at the right hand side of this item (the default says “edit”) and click the “go” button. 
  • Find the show you wish to enter and read over the prospectus to make sure your piece meets all of the requirements. If you feel you’re good to go, click “enter.” 
  • That’s it; you’re all done! 
Artists may submit up to 5 pieces per show.

  1. Our names are Kate and Emma Marinchev. We are 7-year old twin sisters who along with our mom, came up with up with The “Art Hearts” Project.The goal of the project is to use art to help children and people who are in disaster and disadvantaged situations to feel a little less alone, a little more hope, and a lot more loved. The children of Haiti will be the first recipients of the Art Hearts project. We are hoping to collect 10,000 hearts and $10,000. We are asking children and adults everywhere to pick up a marker, crayon, paintbrush, pencil or any other type of art tool and create a unique heart from the heart. We both love art. It makes us feel good. We hope that the hearts and money we collect and send will make the children and people of Haiti feel good too. Our goal is to collect 10,000 hearts and $10,000.

    We would love it if the artists participating in this program could send us a heart too at: Art Hearts for Haiti, c/o Let’s Gogh Art, P.O. Box 664, Lunenburg, MA 01462. There is no deadline for participation. Along with the help of family and their sponsor, Let’s Gogh Art, the girls will be working with a Haitian relief organization and/or Haitian orphanages to distribute the hearts in Haiti.
