Clothesline Benefit Art Sale - Call out for artwork

On Sunday December 11, 2022, MEUS will host its inaugural Clothesline Benefit Art Sale.

We are asking artists to participate by donating work that will be featured and sold at this benefit event. All artwork will be presented on clotheslines strung throughout our mezzanine space, and should be unframed, two-dimensional work on paper, no larger than 11" X 17". Prices are set at either $25 or $50, depending on the size and complexity of the work, and to be decided by you. As space is tight, we’re limiting work to one or two pieces from each participating artist.

Please print and fill out this form to accompany your donated work. Please bring donations to MEUS during our shop hours (Tues.-Sat. 11-5, Sun. 11-4) by December 5th. Contact us if you need special arrangements:

Work can also be mailed to:

104 Baker Street, Ground Fl
Maplewood, NJ 07040

Your donation will help The Essex LGBT Reaching Adolescents In Need (RAIN) Foundation provide food, shelter and support services to homeless LGBT youth & young adults. RAIN Foundation provides emergency shelter services to address the emergent need of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) individuals experiencing crisis leading to homelessness. Their programs promote self-sufficiency and independence to enhance their residents’ ability to function within their communities. Their programs aim to help adolescents lead healthy, productive and meaningful lives.

*The Clothesline Show is modeled after a bi-annual fundraiser held by ABC No Rio, an art and activist center in NYC.
