Village of Greenport Carousel Committee
Inner Scenic Panels RFP Requirements

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Village of Greenport is soliciting portfolios for the creation of Artwork to be photographed and digitized for the Inner Scenic Panels on the Village of Greenport Carousel.

Specifications include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Total of fourteen custom-stretched canvasses (supplied by the Village of Greenport) gessoed and painted with oils.
• Each canvas is to measure: 32” x 28” and will be photographed and re-sized to fit the Inner Scenic Panels.

Each artist shall submit five (5) portfolio pieces of works in oil colors. For each submission, the medium and size of the work should be identified.

Portfolio submissions should be photographic images in either hard copy color print, or digital imagery on a DVD disc (300dpi) or thumb drive.

The subject matter of the panels will include chosen scenes of the North Fork area, from Arshamomoque to Orient Point, focusing on scenes of Greenport. They will be representative of the area during the period of 1850 – 1950. The completed works are expected to be of detailed realism, using some directional light and a warm palette with a full range of values.

Please note that, owing to the number of required inner scenic panels and project completion timing, it is expected that more than one artist will be selected as a result of this Request for Proposals. (Each inner scenic panel must be completed by no later than one month from full contract execution.)

Selected artists will be responsible for providing their own brushes, artist oils and studio space. The Village of Greenport will supply the stretched, gessoed canvases, and representation(s) of assigned scenes.

Each completed panel – and the art work associated with it – will become the property of the Village of Greenport. (It is the intent that the completed inner scenic panel will be permanently installed on the Village of Greenport Carousel.)

Portfolio submissions must be submitted to the Village Clerk no later than

This year’s competition awards are valued at over $70,000 and are designed specifically to support our larger mission: to promote the spread of extraordinary and innovative art in our modern world and to ensure the future productivity and enhance the careers of selected artists. Aside from cash prizes, other awards include participation in the collective exhibition, magazine profiles, valuable PR opportunities and an honorable mention and a complimentary entry to the 34th Chelsea International Fine Art Competition (Feb. 2019). A portion of the gallery’s proceeds from artwork sales will be donated to the Children’s Heart

“Before entering the gallery, I experienced an OMG! moment, when I saw that one of my works was selected for the outdoor display poster. Once inside, my feelings were a little vague at first. Even standing there, in the space, I was still trying to absorb the fact that my artwork was being exhibited in a New York
gallery. Then I felt honored, humbled, and delighted, all at the same time. I was very impressed with the thoughtfulness in which the work was displayed. The whole show looked great!.”
-Rosanne Wolfe, United States, 2017 Selected Artist
