TONIGHT! Artist Open House: April 16, 2014
The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery, Dunkiel Saunders and Champlain Housing Trust invite you to join us tonight at Art+Soul’s Artist Open House on April 16 from 5:30-7:30 PM at the Rose Street Artists’ Cooperative and Gallery, located at 78 Rose Street in Burlington, VT.
Enjoy a fun evening with hors d’oeuvres and learn more about how to submit creative pieces that are inspired by, or connected to, Champlain Housing Trust, the 2014 Art+Soul beneficiary. The artwork does not need to be newly-created work; it just needs to be related to CHT’s mission.
Selected artists will participate in a one-night benefit and event on June 5th, 2014 in which the artwork will be sold with a 50 – 50 split going to CHT and to the artist, and you set the price!
We are accepting submissions of creative pieces in any medium until May 16, 2014. Art may be submitted through the event website: www.artandsoulvt.org
Over the last twelve years, our law firm has been privileged to work with people all around Vermont who are engaged in creative and meaningful enterprises that make a real difference in our communities. Helping these inspiring individuals, nonprofits, and businesses succeed is what makes the practice of law so fulfilling for all of us at Dunkiel Saunders.
We’ve created Art+Soul to celebrate their good work, raise money for great causes, and help people forge new connections in Vermont’s vibrant creative economy.
Each year, Art+Soul benefits a different local nonprofit and features local art inspired by, or connected to, the nonprofit’s mission. All art will be sold, and proceeds from art sales will be split between the artists and the nonprofit.
For additional information, please visit www.artandsoulvt.org or check the Art+Soul Facebook page for updates and for photos from the previous years of Art+Soul, as well as images of the artwork.
This year, the event will benefit Champlain Housing Trust and will feature artwork inspired by CHT’s mission, which is to provide affordable housing to people in the three northwestern counties of Vermont. In all, over 5,000 people live in apartments, housing co-ops, condos and single-family homes that CHT keeps permanently affordable. CHT has programs that help people wherever they are in the spectrum of housing needs, from homelessness to homeownership.
The Champlain Housing Trust has also served thousands of people with financial literacy, homebuyer education, credit counseling and foreclosure prevention advocacy. A leader nationally and internationally, CHT also won the United Nations World Habitat Award in 2008, recognizing its innovation and sustainability, leading to the formation of new affordable housing organizations in London, Brussels, Sydney and Paris based upon the “Burlington model.”
