NURTUREart Benefit: I'm helping out on the committee this year and we still need more artists' work to showcase! Here's the link to donate your work: http://nurturesubmit.tristanmedia.com/

Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA): An excellent, Philadelphia-based resource and gallery space.  As this year's Visiting Curator, I organized the group exhibition "Limited Engagement."  The space is beautiful, spacious and well-lit and, best of all, they are now accepting curatorial proposals for the Visiting Curator 2011: http://www.cfeva.org/announcements.aspx

ArtConnectsNY: We're collaborating with this inspiring, new organization to curate a permanent exhibition and events program for the Ridgewood Older Adult Center.  The exhibition, "NOW! On View" is a celebration of the center's vibrant and spontaneous spirit.  If your work reflects an appreciation of the "here-and-now" or you'd like to propose a new piece or project, please submit your information/idea to gtrainsalon@gmail.com.

Trinity Project Brooklyn: We are collaborating with these passionate art and music supporters for one of our September salons.  They have partnered with the formerly neglected Trinity Church in Brooklyn and are always looking to collaborate with artists and interested souls.  Right now, they're in need of volunteers for upcoming events.  In their words:

We have a number of volunteer opportunities coming up. This is a great way to meet Trinity Project people and if you are a Trinity Project participating artist, fulfill your hourly service in exchange for space use. If you would like to help out at one of the volunteer days listed below, please RSVP to Christina: christina@thetrinityprojectbk.org ASAP! Thanks!:
