Twitter Art Exhibit Charity

Hey everyone, I wanted to let you know about this this thing called “Twitter Art Exhibit”, it’s a yearly event where people create and donate a hand made post card sized artwork that will be sold for charity. I have been a part of it for several years now. And not only is it fun, it’s for a good cause! Over the last 10 years they have raised 85,000$ and helped numerous charities.

I will note that the art MUST be traditional and handmade. Not digital, nor printed. Only works painted or drawn physically accepted. I know this is a digital art forum, but I wanted to let you all know about it anyway as I believe it is a good cause that deserves more attention and needs more artists to contribute! :slightly_smiling_face: I will note you do need a twitter or instagram handle to enter, as this event makes heavy use of social media, as it started as a twitter only event. The deadline for this year is March 15th. It’s fun, and very easy to be a part of, so I just thought I’d share!

I read it and it says that digital work IS accepted, but it needs to be printed in a very high quality paper.

Ah, you’re right. That’s new this year! Thanks for noticing! It’s in the FAQ.

Q. What mediums are approved?

A. Twitter Art Exhibit is an exhibition of handmade art , and we mean this in the traditional sense. We are accepting Digital art for the first time this year but it must comply witht eh requirements of a one off original created for the TAE event and signed. Please make sure it is printed off on high quality paper and of a high quality print.

You may use watercolors, pencil/graphite, acrylic, ink, gouache, encuastic, oil, charcoal and pastel (please use spray fixative!), or mixed media. Also collages are accepted as are fabric and felting. (Please mount them on a stiff piece of card). Linocuts, etchings, silkscreen, woodcuts and lithographs are accepted but must be unique (1/1) and hand-signed. Please, nothing perishable, toxic or otherwise harmful.

Just to show an example, I’ve just finished my art card, traditionally made. This card will soon be mailed off to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Where the charity event will be held. Remember March 15th is the deadline, and February 17th if you want to be in their catalogue.

They want all the cards they can get! The more they sell, the more will be raised for charity!
