And now I hear from BUILT 2018…


I’ve entered my artworks at BUILT, Historic Albany Foundation’s charity fundraising auction, for nearly eight years.  Ever since I submitted my first piece, a print of The AGFA Bridge Over Ansco Lake, my artworks have found new “forever homes” with art lovers throughout the Capital District.

Earlier this year, I submitted two photos and a burlap stitching project to this year’s BUILT “Call for Art” request.

Yesterday, I received word.

These were the three pieces I submitted.


Ladies Make Their Own Entrances. Nikon Df camera, Vivitar 19mm f/3.8 lens, 1/125 sec., ISO 400, f/5.6. Photo (c) Chuck Miller, all rights reserved.

Yep, my wistful shot at North Lake Avenue, at what’s left of an old “Ladies’ Entrance” sign.


Fort Orange Dairy and Feeds. Created by Chuck Miller, all rights reserved.

Yep, this artwork – which garnered two ribbons in Competition Season 2018 – now has a chance to find a new home for itself.

And …


Jesus Saves. Nikon F100 camera, Nikkor 300mm f/5.6 lens, Revolog Tesla 2 film. Photo by Chuck Miller.

Yes, one of my three “Triple Blue” pictures, a photo of the neon Mercy Mission sign, a photo that claimed blue silk at three different competitions back in the day.

Yesterday, I received word from Historic Albany Foundation.  All three artworks have been ACCEPTED and will be at the Empire State Plaza Museum on Saturday, November 3 for that awesome BUILT gala!

So yeah, Charity Season is going quite well – three of my artworks will be up for bid / purchase on Saturday, November 3 at the Empire State Plaza Museum, while my fourth piece – Infrared Horizon 787 – gets its chance to shine at the Albany Institute of History and Art’s “Call for Art” on Wednesday, November 7.

This is so cool.

Can’t wait. 😀
