“Artists of Ridgewood” Calendar Project

 The submission process is closed and the Committee is currently reviewing applications. Announcements will be made by June 30.

Description: The Ridgewood Arts Foundation is calling all artists with a connection to Ridgewood to submit artwork to be considered for inclusion in our new fundraising project, a wall calendar for 2020 entitled "Artists of Ridgewood." The calendar will highlight the work of local artists working in variety of mediums and artistic styles. Proceeds from the sale of the calendar will support RAF’s mission to provide funding for scholarships and grants to Ridgewood-based artists and artistic groups.

Eligibility: Any artist living or working in Ridgewood, or whose work reflects or represents Ridgewood, is eligible to apply. Submissions may be of any artistic style, method, medium, or subject matter.

Image Requirements: The preferred image format is PDF, but we will also accept high resolution TIFF, JPEG, PSD, AI, EPS, or INDD files. Image resolution must be 300 dpi or greater and color mode should be set to RGB (to avoid additional conversion in the design process). The format for the wall calendar is 8 1/2 x 11 horizontal (11 x 17 when open), and images should be suitable for that orientation.

Submission Deadline: April 30, 2019. All submissions must use the form below. Images may be submitted either using the Artwork URL field to include a shareable link, or via email to information@ridgewoodartsfoundation.org with the subject line “Calendar Project” and the artist’s name.
