Bryan Osburn. Untitled. Oil on canvas. 14 inches x 12 inches. 2012

A few weeks ago, painter Bryan Osburn was brutally attacked near his Greenpoint studio by a group of thugs who shattered his jaw and took his cell phone. Bryan has undergone extensive surgery to put his jaw back together and will need financial assistance as his body and mind heal.

106 Green has set up a fundraiser and the local artist community has rallied by donating artwork to help out one of their own. Donate, buy a raffle ticket, attend this Sunday’s event and show love the Greenpoint way! Here’s how you can help:

1) Donate here via Stripe in any amount.

2) Buy a raffle ticket. For $100, you can win a piece of art.

3) Donate an artwork. A small drawing, painting, print, doodle, etc. Ideally, work under 12 x 12”(ish)*


On Sunday, August 9, 106 Green (104 Green St) will be hosting a fundraiser from 4-7PM. The raffle will begin at 5PM. All names will be put into a box and drawn at random. When your name is called, you will be able to choose any artwork that is available and take it home!
