Two resources for local artists today: the first is a new grant program, the other a new platform for artists to share and sell their works:
Columbia County Arts Fund
Furthermore, a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund, has launched the Columbia County Arts Fund. Artists who have 501(c)3 status, or can apply with a partner organization, are eligible for grants up to $5,000. Applications are open now through July 1.
Hudson Art Fair
The Hudson Art Fair has launched, giving Hudson-based artists the opportunity to showcase and sell their work online. Currently, the program is donating 25% of all online sales to the Hudson Youth Center and the Hudson Arts Emergency Program.
