Overnight Projects is now fundraising for an exciting summer season of exhibitions and events. As a 100% volunteer-run organization, we cannot make these programs happen without the support of our community. Our most intensive summer undertaking will be a site-specific exhibition at South Hero's abandoned Sandbar Inn, and for this we are now offering donors the unique opportunity to individually sponsor one of five participating artists. We invite you to get involved, and seek financial support for the following projects: 

Over Land Art Book Fair, May 2018: The side of our efforts dedicated to artist books is working with Burlington-based Flatlander Press to launch Vermont’s first and only art book fair: Over Land Art Book Fair. Extending our exhibition model in non-traditional spaces, we will host pop-up fairs in different places around the country, the first iteration of which will occur this coming May in collaboration with the music festival Waking Windows

Sited within Winooski's festival, OLABF will present a curated selection of regionally-based sellers and small presses, including Benjamin Ogilvy Projects, Border Patrol, Bread and Puppet Press, Green Mountains Review, Ruth Stone FoundationWilt Press, Wing ClubWords & Pictures, as well as tables from Flatlander Press and Overnight Projects featuring artists that we have worked with, hope to work with, or who we just really like. The fair will take place on Saturday, May 5 from 1-7pm at 41 Main Street in Winooski's Rotary. 

Jon Beacham Screening, June 2018: A series of silent 16mm films by Kingston, New York-based artist Jon Beacham. The screening will be held at an historic property in Shelburne, Vermont, on Thursday, June 14, and will be by invitation only. Folks interested in attending can contact abbey@overnightprojects.com for details. We are seeking donations to help offset the costs associated with the artist's materials, time, travel, and accommodations. 

Sandbar Inn Exhibition, July 2018: A five-artist exhibition at the abandoned Sandbar Inn in South Hero, Vermont, to take place the last weekend in July. The exhibition will be installation-based with artists responding to the site and its history through the lens of their respective art practices. Work will include video, light, sound, and performance. 

To help support these initiatives and/or to sponsor an artist, please email abbey@overnightprojects.com — or simply make a tax-deductible donation toward summer programming.
