Sell Your Art!
Artsbridge’s Outdoor Art Sale, August 30, 11am-4pm

Exciting news! Our popular Outdoor Art Sale (formally known as the Clothesline Art Sale) is now firmly scheduled for Sunday, August 30th, 11am – 4pm on the grounds of Prallsville Mills in Stockton, NJ. This event is for members to exhibit and is non-juried. The event is being coordinated with the Prallsville Mill Historic Society and all NJ Department of Health guidelines to prevent COVID-19 will be followed. That is why an outdoor event is best! The Board hopes you will take advantage of this opportunity.

We urge reasonable pricing for your art and encourage a $300 maximum due to the nature of the show. Registration begins August 1st, and is on a first-come-first-served basis. This is a members show and sale and you must be a member of Artsbridge to exhibit. The registration fee is $25.00. The closing date for registration is August 15th, 2020.

Details: Set up begins at 9:30am. Artists do their own set up. You can bring a tent, umbrella, display racks, tables and chairs. We will be following social distancing guidelines, and will share spacing information and mask policy, following registration. To hold your place, you must either mail a check with contact information to Therese Halscheid, 1143 W. Mt. Vernon Ave. Haddonfield, NJ 08033, or pay $25.00 via PayPal on the Artsbridge website. One last step: email Therese to secure your reservation. Send your name, email, phone number, and how you paid to thalscheid@gmail.com, or text/call her at 609-238-2155. Questions? Call or email Therese, the show coordinator.

If you are not a member and would like to become one to participate in this event and others, please send your membership check with your Art Sale registration fee via mail or pay by PayPal on our website. Membership for the remainder of the year is discounted to $20.

This is a non-profit event for Artsbridge. This event is designed to keep costs low and give members an affordable opportunity to reach potential buyers. The registration fee covers a display ad in the Bucks County Herald, lawn signs, posters, and social media. Artsbridge board members will be helping with publicity and we encourage you to reach out to your friends, collectors, and supporters with whatever method of communication you use. Please download the posters, and mail, email, post, or drop off to supporters.

Get your art ready and come out and have fun exhibiting and selling your art at this beautiful and historic river valley setting which is on the Lambertville-New Hope tourism map and gets lots of traffic on a summer Sunday.
