Artist Toolbox: 10X10=100 Moves to VSOP

The 14th Annual 10X10=100 Art Show and Sale, which annually benefits the North Fork Environmental Council and WPPB, Peconic Public Broadcasting, is moving this year from the South Street Gallery to VSOP Gallery at 311 Front Street in Greenport.

Artists of all levels of experience and working in any medium are invited to pick up a complimentary 10X10 inch wood panel for their work at VSOP Projects beginning on Sept. 1. Completed works must be dropped back off between Nov. 16 and Dec. 1.

The exhibition will be open for preview during the Greenport Village First Fridays Arts Walk on Dec. 6. The sale will begin promptly at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7. Works will remain on view and for sale through the opening of VSOP Projects’ winter Salon on Dec. 14.

All works will be sold for $100 each. 25 percent will go back to the artist, 65 percent will be donated to NFEC and WPPB, and 10 percent will be retained by the gallery.

The 10X10=100 Art Show was founded in 2005 by Amy Worth at the South Street Gallery, where it has been running for 19 years.

“The North Fork has an important history of artists and artmaking,” said Jonathan Weiskopf, owner and director of VSOP Projects. “I am honored to have been asked to keep this long-time holiday tradition going, one that supports causes so vital to our local economy.
