FUNDRAISER~Original Art on sale at York College

Want to own original artwork by professional artists at a MUCH LOWER COST?
Art Sale Fundraiser in the York College Galleries (Wolf Hall)   

Gallery director Matthew Clay-Robison has filled the gallery with original prints (woodcuts, etchings, lithographs, silkscreens, etc) that are being offered in exchange for donations to help one of his former students pay for his cancer treatments.

 

The student, Todd Gerundo, was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma cancer of the left hand in March of 2010. In order to contain the disease, Todd’s arm was amputated and he underwent 4 months of rigorous chemotherapy treatments. During his treatment Todd has gone deeply into debt and while his health recovers he and his friends have begun a fundraising campaign to help him pay off his medical bills and outstanding debts. The prints in the gallery are being offered in exchange for small donations, making this an excellent opportunity to begin an art collection at a very low cost. Most of the prints were made by Prof. Clay-Robison and his former students at University of Maryland, Moore College of Art, and Bloomsburg University. Many of these artists have begun careers as professional artists in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, and DC. The suggested donation for small prints is $10 or 3/$25 (as opposed to $250-750 in a professional gallery,) though some prints are of a higher quality than others and smaller donations are certainly welcome.

The fundraiser will run from July 16 – 23 during normal work hours. If you would like to make a donation you can leave a check made out to Matthew Clay-Robison in the donation box or use the computer in the gallery to make a direct online donation. If you have any questions, please email mclayrob@ycp.edu.

Go ahead...take a swing. I'll duck and listen.
