Let's fix this messy studio by getting rid of some stuff!
"This is the first ever 'clean out the studio' and recoup your losses yard sale!" according to Debbie Rasberry of the Piedmont Pastel Society. She has invited MAG and others to participate in this event for artists to buy and sell art items and meet each other in the process. It's a no-lose proposition. So plan on attending to sell or buy.
Bring any art/photography supplies you are no longer using, or have never used and sell them to other artists. Easels, frames, frame supplies, any art/photography surfaces, paints, pastels, brushes, books and DVDs... bring it along and sell it.
Tables are provided, but artists are responsible for their own sales. Bring plenty of cash for change.
It is Saturday, July 20th, 10 AM to Noon, at the McDowell Art Center in the upstairs gallery at 123 McDowell Street, Matthews. The building is located next to the Matthews Community Center at 100 McDowell Street. Some gps gadgets have a hard time finding the art center.
In addition, any unwanted or unsold items can be donated to the Nash County Correctional Facility for a wonderful program that teaches interactive skills through art! They need supplies like pastels, pastel paper, watercolors, brushes, etc. Labeled boxes will be around for greatly appreciated donations.
Contact Nicki Shishakly at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a table.
Afterwards, PPS will have Adele Goodman do an animal pastel portrait demo and give advice on how to survive a negative critique at 1 PM.
