donate — galleryELL @ governors island

on behalf of galleryELL i would like to introduce you to transient landscape: visualizing governors island, a new group exhibit and artist-in-residence program coming to governors island this summer.

this two-part project will include an evolving group exhibition, entitled transient landscape, which takes a broad look at the influence of our ever-changing landscapes — physical and psychological — through a variety of media, as well as a concurrent artist-in-residence program, visualizing governors island, which will give the public an inside look at our artists at work. this project will run from 22 july through 25 september 2011.

the majority of expenses for each galleryELL event are carried by our artist members. due to the size and scope of transient landscape we are reaching out to you to ask for some form of sponsorship. financial donations will be graciously accepted and will help fund exhibition costs including packaging/shipping, installation materials, marketing, insurance, and other related expenses.

last year, governors island received more than 443,000 visitors during its 2010 summer season, and even more are expected in 2011. we are very excited to have the potential to reach so many people and share our mission and our work with the public. we would love to have you be a part of that experience.

should you choose to donate to our event, your generosity will be recognized by adding your name to a credit panel that will hang at the entrance of the gallery space on the island.

galleryELL is a transient, brooklyn-based gallery comprised of active artists who look beyond daily practice by reaching out to members of our community and to the community at large, sharing resources, ideas, and creativity through camaraderie. we see the idea of transience as part of all of us and as part of the cities in which we live. recently we have had successful exhibits both locally and internationally. to find out more about galleryELL visit galleryELL.com.

we thank you for your generous support. you help bring great art to the people of new york!

sincerely,
john ros, artist & founder/director, galleryELL
