Calling All Artists!

Our 2010 calendars will be ready soon! Stay posted for details!

We are searching for Artists!

We're working on an exciting Newf Rescue fundraising project for 2011 featuring the work of artists who have depicted Newfs in their work. This can be pencil sketches, watercolour, oil, etc.
For 2011, rather than having a calendar of photographs we have decided to offer something a bit different......we are creating a calendar of Fine Art Images of Newfs, then holding an auction to auction off the original pieces that the artists have donated. To reach the largest audience we will likely be hosting the auction online so that our Newf Friends worldwide can participate. This calendar is going to be truly unique -- a collection of images created in different media -- truly one of a kind!
So far, we have confirmed a few Newf loving artists who are happy to participate in this fundraiser, and we are now looking for your help in finding a few more to help us complete this calendar.
12 artists will have their donated piece of art as the large feature image for the month, and will have their bio and contact info featured on that page. They will also be featured on our rescue site.
If we have more than 12 artists donate their artwork, then we will have a panel of judges select the 12 feature images, and all of the other artists' work will also be included in the calendar as the smaller images throughout the calendar. Again, their info will be listed in the calendar, and their bio will be posted on our website.
We would like to have our list of participating artists confirmed by September 30, 2009 with donated art submitted by January 15, 2010 Artists can use either one of their existing pieces, or create a new work for this project.
If you are interested in participating in the fundraiser please contact us at newf.friends@gmail.com Please cross post to other Newf loving artists who may be interested in being a part of this endeavour. If response is really strong, we may end up incorporating all of the images into a book as well.....but first step is our calendar!
We look forward to hearing from you!
