LoDi Project Art for Haiti Call for Artists
Advertise on NR

The owner of one of the newest art galleries in town, The LoDi Project on North Blount, Georges Le Chevallier has put out a call for local artists to create art for a benefit for Haiti. Georges’s cousin Gerard Le Chevallier worked in Haiti during the Earthquake and is still missing. The show will be from Friday February 5th - Sunday the 7th. All proceeds from the art show will go to Mercy Corps and designated to the immediate relief of the Haitian people.

This is one of many ways you can give to Haiti through local businesses including eating at an Empire Eats restaurant today (Tuesday) and give clothes and supplies to Beleza in Cameron Village.

Check out the details of the Call for Artists below.

Open to all artists of any level and any country - everyone is welcome to contribute
Help the Disaster Relief efforts in Haiti by donating an unframed work on paper to the Artists Unite for Haiti art sale.

Work on paper or light board any size, but no larger than 11 x 17 inches (maximum size: 29 cm x 43cm)
Any medium such as: drawing, painting, collage, photography
All works must be unframed and unsigned- the work needs to be signed on the back (also include your city and country)
Work will be hung using clips, so avoid using heavy materials.

Each artwork will be sold for $25.00
The artists will remain anonymous until after sale

    I am looking forward to donating several pieces, featuring imagery that has been popular with my customers at various arts festivals and charity shows.
