Project 5

Amador Gallery, ClampArt, Daniel Cooney Fine Art, Foley Gallery and Sasha Wolf Gallery are collaborating on a series of projects starting this fall. The galleries, referred to here as Project 5, will begin their collaboration with a portfolio of 5 images by 5 artists, one from each of the participating Project 5 galleries to be released on September 15. The portfolios will be released in an edition of 30 and will provide collectors the opportunity to start a relationship with five different artists and galleries at the same time.

All images will be unique to the portfolio - made specifically by the participating artists for this project. The artists included in the first portfolio are: Olaf Otto Becker from Amador, Jill Greenberg from ClampArt, Stuart O'Sullivan from Daniel Cooney, Thomas Allen from Foley, and Guido Castagnoli from Sasha Wolf.

Another exciting collaboration will be a monthly series of Artist's Salons that will alternate between Project 5's galleries. The first salon will be held at Daniel Cooney Fine Art on Saturday, September 26th at 3pm and will feature four emerging artists presenting their latest bodies of work. Participating artists are: Timothy Briner, Yola Monakhov, Jessica Dimmock, and Cara Phillips.

Project 5 is also introducing a series of group portfolio reviews for artists to receive constructive criticism and to establish an ongoing dialogue about their work with art world professionals.

To apply for Project 5’s Portfolio Review, please send:
- A written description of your work
- A biography that outlines your education and professional experience.
- A link to your website, if you have one.
- 10 jpegs sent either in a zip file or attached to an email (or series of emails). The jpgs should be 100 dpi and 6 inches at the largest dimension.

Project 5’s Portfolio Review will consist of three 20-minute reviews with three of Project 5’s gallerists. Great consideration will be given to the matching of gallery owners and artists based on the strengths and experience of each. After the formal reviews, there will be a social hour for all of the participating artists and reviewers to meet one another and share contacts.

Deadline for receipt of materials for this review will be September 6th and the artists will be notified of acceptance by September 9th. A $250 check made out to Project 5 will be due by September 12th.

Please direct any questions to or to any of the galleries involved.
