Works of all mediums, subjects and styles regularly decorate our walls, and now they can spice up yours too! The Soak Up the Summer ART SALE at the St. Augustine Art Association offers BARGAIN BUYS on original artwork from St. Augustine’s artists.
Artists! Now is the time to clean the cobwebs out of the closet and brush the dust off of your stored artwork! You probably have some pieces that haven’t been displayed in a while, and others desperately need a new home. So, what better way to soak up the summer by selling the old and making way for the new?
All of the art in this exhibit is PRICED TO SELL and READY TO GO TO A NEW HOME at the time of purchase — Buy art online or in person at the STAAA gallery: July 3 – August 28!
HOW TO ENTER
Please note that there are 2 aspects to this exhibit (online & in-gallery) and it runs for the months of July and August. All entries that meet the guidelines will be accepted and listed online. (Artwork that has been in an STAAA exhibit IS allowed) Due to the safety and spatial measures we have adopted for reopening, there is a limited number of works that can be installed in the gallery at a time. Works installed in the gallery will rotate so that every piece has an equal opportunity to be displayed.
