Clothesline Art Sale poster & postcard ~ Members only

We are getting ready to take our Clothesline Art Sale poster/postcard to the printer, and we need some digital images of member artwork to hang on the “clothesline” pictured in the poster. If you are interested in having a piece considered, please send a small digital image of it (pick your best piece), preferably a JPEG (*.jpg) under 1 meg in size with at least a resolution of 72 pixels per inch. to Norma Eaton. This is free advertising, so it is worth doing.

On another note, we are going to be placing an ad in the Gazette Times to run for a few weeks before the Clothesline Art Sale. This will cost some money, so we have to ask you to send a check for $30 along with a CD Rom containing a digital image of your favorite painting (this time at least 250 pixels per inch) to Margie Kinch.

Be sure that the CD is labeled with the following:

Phone Number
Email Address (if applicable)
Title of 2D Artwork

If you want it back, send a self-addressed envelope stamped with sufficient postage to get it back to you.


Clothesline Sale of Art 2007

It is that time of year when those who are planning to participate in the Clothesline Sale need to start getting your artwork in order, according to Clothesline Chair Molly Perry.

If you have matting, framing, card printing, etc. to do, it might be a good idea to get all of the necessary things ready. Time seems to catch up quickly with all of us.

Molly will be presenting our program for the July meeting and will be able to answer any of your questions at that time. The applications for display space for the sale will be inserted into the July issue of Brush Strokes for your convenience.

And, please remember, that only juried exhibiting members are allowed acceptance into the show with only two-dimensional work to be displayed. Guidelines for the sale are available in the 2006-2007 Art Guild Directory.

It is important for new or returning Guild exhibiting members who wish to participate in the sale to note that you are required to display at least once in one of our Guild sponsored sites in order to be eligible to display at the Clothesline Sale in August. Because of the large number of participants and the limited amount of space available, there will be no exceptions to this rule.
