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 edu@ebsqart.com.

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.

To add an entry to any 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.

Please support Think Pink

October is drawing to a close, and we’ve seen some tremendous support for our Susan G Komen fundraiser, Think Pink.  At present time, we’re at 56 awesome and thought provoking entries.  We’ve asked for a suggested donation of $10 per entry to EBSQ’s Think Pink Team, but right now we’re only at $245 (that’s 16%) of our $1500 fundraising goal– and I personally donated 10% of our goal to our total. We’re doing slightly better with our prize money goal with our Chipin widget. We’re trying to raise $500 in prize money for our participating artists and we’re doing fairly well with $130 (that’s 26%) toward that goal.

How can you help? First and foremost, if you’re a show participant and haven’t donated directly to the EBSQ Think Pink Team on the Susan G Komen website, please do so now.  It’s a very worthy cause AND it makes you eligible to win the prize money being collected.

Secondly, we hope you’ll consider supporting our artists by donating to our chipin for the Member’s Choice award. Right now, we’re at the largest monthly prize amount we’ve seen in quite some time. I’d dearly love to see us reach our $500 goal, or even surpass it by month’s end.

Last but not least, PLEASE help promote the show.  The clock is ticking and I’d really love to see us make both of our goals before October ends.

Thanks for your consideration!
