How I was able to turn out some kind of artwork to enter this year’s Twitter Art Exhibit is beyond me.
My erstwhile friend, Mr. Resistance, has moved into every room in my virtual house and is making every waking hour a living nightmare.
I have to check, but I have entered this online art exhibit and sale for Twitter users for the last three years.
The entry can be of any media, design, style, but at a postcard sized surface. The organizers clip the artwork to the gallery wall.
The artwork is donated by the artists and purchases go to a worthy charity. This year it’s being held in New York City and benefits Foster Pride.
Here’s some information from the Twitter Art Exhibit website:
Twitter Art Exhibit: NYC is an international exhibition of original postcard art benefiting Foster Pride’s “Handmade” Program, in which young women in foster care learn to create and market a unique line of goods. The entire exhibition is carried out by an unpaid, volunteer corps of organizers and artists; there is no entry fee, and artists of all career levels are encouraged to participate, making it possible for emerging talent to appear alongside seasoned professionals.
Twitter Art Exhibit: NYC is the sixth installment of an open international exhibition of handmade postcard art for charity, donated by hundreds of participating artists from around the globe.
Social media plays a major role in Twitter Art Exhibit. It is our intention to tweet, share, seed and promote our artists to thank them for their participation, and to make this event a huge success.
The event will be highly publicized and well attended by art buyers and enthusiasts, members of the press, local artists and the community, as well as by the staff of Foster Pride and the young people they support.

It’s exciting that the Twitter Art Exhibit is right in my backyard in NYC. Maybe, if I can get all my ducks in a row, I can attend the opening night reception.
