Clothesline Benefit Art Sale
Friday December 1, 2017


On December 1 ABC No Rio will reprise its Clothesline Benefit Art Sale -- this time at the Clemente, one of our ABC No Rio in Exile locations and temporary home to our Zine Library, our archive, and our office. We are asking artists who support ABC No Rio to participate by donating work to this benefit event.

As in previous clothesline benefits, all artwork will be presented on clotheslines strung through the Clemente's LES Gallery space, and should be unframed, two-dimensional work no larger than 11" X 17".

For our clothesline benefits prices are set at either $25 or $50, depending on the size and complexity of the work, and to be decided by you.

Work can either be mailed to ABC No Rio at the address below, or delivered in person on November 29th or 30th between 7:00-9:00pm. Please provide the information requested below for each work donated.

Your participation and support is crucial to ABC No Rio. If you've walked down Rivington Street over the past year, you'll have noticed a gaping hole where ABC No Rio once stood. In July 2016 we vacated our beloved building in advance of demolition and new construction. During the construction of our new facility, ABC No Rio programs and operations will continue "in exile" at other venues and in collaboration with other organizations. The Clothesline Benefit Art Sale will support our ABC No Rio in Exile programming.

Please freely forward this request to friends and fellow artists. Announcements and invitations for the Clothesline Benefit will be sent to all participating artists. Please invite your friends, colleagues and collaborators!
