It’s a yART Supply Sale! While the name sounds a lot like a yard sale, this sale is not your typical yard sale at all! This sale is geared to helping artists, whether it is to acquire lightly used art supplies at a discounted price or to get rid of art supplies they may not need.
The Watauga County Arts Council is offering this opportunity for artists to participate in the yART Supply Sale on Saturday, September 29th from noon to 5 p.m. at the Blue Ridge ArtSpace.
Artists may lease a space for $15 to set up their own table and sell off those excess supplies many artists seem to collect. Many times they’ve dabbled in a medium, decided they didn’t like it or decided they like something else better. Those supplies, equipment, and other paraphernalia can fill up a closet quickly or possibly even more than a closet. Why not use this opportunity to turn those unused items into a little cash?
At the same time, perhaps artists (or wannabe artists) want to try out a medium, but they don’t really want to expend a lot of money to do that. This is a golden opportunity to pick up the necessary supplies or tools from another artist at a bargain price! It’s also a great opportunity for art students to save a little money on supplies.
Artists are asked to email [email protected] to let the Arts Council know you will need a booth space. A minimum $15 donation is required. Bring your own table and/or shelter. For information you may also call 828-264-1789. The Blue Ridge ArtSpace is located at 377 Shadowline Drive in Boone. “It’s the place with the little blue people on the front porch.”
