The Clothesline Show: Going, Going, Gone Opening Reception

Gallery 18 takes pleasure in announcing its first-ever silent auction/benefit! Entitled “The Clothesline Show: Going, Going, GONE,” it will be on display from December 3 to December 31, 2019, with an Opening Reception on Sunday, December 8 from 12 – 2 pm. The auction itself ends Thursday, December 19, 2019.

December’s show celebrates “Small Works on Paper” in the theme of “Holiday Spirit,” however the artists choose to interpret it. Unframed, inserted into job ticket sleeves, and hung on a clothesline throughout the gallery, the artworks comprise a show that couldn’t be less pretentious.

And for a good reason, namely, as a way of using simple means to benefit artists, galleries, and community! The artist is spared the framing expense, as well as any entry or hanging fees; the gallery benefits by receiving 40% of sales, rather than its normal 20%; and the community, with bids starting at a very modest $25, get to buy art at highly affordable prices. It’s a win-win-win in keeping with the Holiday Season!

The sub-theme of the show is: Art is for everyone! Visitors to the gallery are asked to consider giving one of the exhibited art pieces instead of a tie, a “fun” gift, a bottle of wine. Art is more lasting and has more impact than many a gift any of us will give or receive this season. And with bids that start so very low for very accomplished artwork, this is the chance to acquire for a friend or family member a real find!
