Family of Woodstock and CronArtUSA raffle
We’ve teamed up with New Paltz based artist Ryan Cronin, CronArtUSA, who recently created an original artwork in honor of the Mohonk Tulip Festival.
Anyone who donates to this fundraiser will be automatically entered to be randomly selected to receive the first unframed print of this original artwork. The print will be printed on Hahnemuhle paper, an archival, heavy weight, fine art paper which guarantees high color density, superior resistance to light and aging, and unchanging quality in reproduction. All of the artwork is scanned to ensure the most accurate representation of the original.
The fundraiser will end on May 31st. We will direct message the winner of the print via Facebook on June 1st. The winner will have a choice between an unframed 11″ x 14″ or 30″ x 40″ print.
