Historic Albany Foundation Calls For Young Artists in Build 2021 Show

The Historic Albany Foundation is looking for artists to submit to their upcoming art show and auction, Build 2021. The entry fee of $10 is waived for artists under 25 years old. These young artists will also be eligible for an additional $100 prize.

All submissions must “speak to the built environment of the Capital Region or be constructed using salvaged material.” Submitted work will not be accepted for exhibition and auction if they do not fit these requirements. Each artist may submit up to three pieces, one of which may be a print or reproduction.

Access the submission form here by Friday, Sept. 17.

Artists from all backgrounds and experiences are welcome to submit work, including “renowned professionals, passionate hobbyists, and undiscovered talent.”

The event opens at The Argus Hotel in Albany on Nov. 4 and will be open to the public Nov. 5-7.

At the opening event, guests will be able to bid on up to 200 pieces of the architecturally-themed multimedia art–featuring works that range from paintings to photograph to sculpture and jewelry. Artists receive 50 percent of the price sold at auction. The remainder is donated to support the Historic Albany Foundation.
