Good news arrives via Dallas: The dream team behind The Goss-Michael Foundation and MTV Re:Define, Joyce Goss and Kenny Goss, have come together with Maxine Trowbridge, former PaperCity Dallas editor in chief and past president of the Dallas Contemporary board. The result is the recently minited Artrinity, which puts forth an engaging collecting project. Postcards of Positivty plans to tap Texas, national, and international artists to contribute a postcard-size artwork for acquisition for a democratic $250, with its creator anonymous until purchase. The works will be exhibited and sold online. Trowbridge told PaperCity that the three founders of Artrinity are reaching out to their A-list artist network, aiming for at least 100 participants. All Postcards of Positivty proceeds benefit Artist Relief a fund co-organized by respected nonprofits including Creative Capital, Artadia, and MAP Fund that awards $5,000 grants across all disciplines. Call for artists now through July 3; exhibition June 1 through July 31; contact artrinity.com, artistrelief.org.
