Collar Works is a non-profit art space located at 621 River St. in Troy, NY dedicated to supporting emerging and under represented artists, working in any media, exhibiting challenging and culturally relevant contemporary artworks. Striving to expand the current art vernacular in New York’s capital region, Collar Works provides a venue for community dialogue focused on serious, provocative and spirited artworks.

 We are thrilled to be hosting the third annual MAD Collar Party on Saturday, August 10th. Please save the date and join us for a great night of art, music, and libations in celebration of Collar Work's tenth year! This event will embody the spirit of a summer backyard gathering. We’re bringing the outdoors indoors with classic lawn games, tailgate style eats, and the “Art Yard Sale” which we would love for you to be part of.

The Art Yard Sale will have artists’ works available for purchase – prices displayed in a “tag sale” manner in the center of the party. Sales will be managed by Collar Works so the participating artists can enjoy the evening, and proceeds will be split 50/50 between the artist and the gallery. Collar Works proceeds will be used to support continued arts programming. The suggested price range is $100-$300.

To show our appreciation, artists who participate in the Art Yard Sale will be admitted for free to the party, and each participating artist may bring one guest at a discounted ticket price of $20 (regular admission price is $35.)

To submit, please provide the following:

1. Your full name

2. Up to 3 images of the work in jpg or png format.

3. Titles, medium, price and year created.

Drop Off dates will be Thursday & Friday, August 1st and 2nd from 12- 4 PM.

We hope to see you on August 10th!
