You Should Go or Do or Give
HELLO ARTISTS here’s an announcement just for you: MIDOMA Gallery in Midtown Manhattan is currently accepting submissions from LGBTQ artists in the New York area. Chosen artists will showcase their work September 17 to October 21st as the backdrop for a very important fundraiser “Upstate Meets Downstate — Take 2”, helping raise awareness and funds for The Q Center located in Syracuse, NY.
The Q Center is a safe space for LGBTQ youth ages 8-26, their parents and allies. They provide support groups, healthcare, housing help, GED support, college scholarships, food and crisis help.
This will be an open submission process and those interested should email at least three samples of their current work to Drea Saenz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
