2021 First Brush of Spring Art Sale

2021 New Harmony First Brush of Spring Art Sale

Attention Artists! Great News for this year’s traditional Art Sale!  We are reducing its commission rate for this event!

Everyone knows that New Harmony visitors loves to patronize the arts.  Simply put, they want more art at our sale!  To meet that demand, we have dropped our commission rate to increase artist participation. Artists will get 70% of the purchase price and Hoosier Salon will retain 30% at our traditional Art Sale in the Ribeyre Center (Gym). We want artists to sell more work and give buyers an array of art choices. BOOTH SPACE IS LIMITED SO WE CAN ACHIEVE SOCIAL DISTANCING.

In addition, the Hoosier Salon New Harmony Gallery will offer TWO opportunities for you to sell art during this year’s Paint Out.  You may participate in either, BUT not both events!  The two separate and distinct Art Sales:

1. the Ribeyre Annex Sale Saturday, April 17, and
2. the Ribeyre Center Sale Saturday, April 17. Artists may sell original artwork brought with them or painted during the First Brush of Spring Paint Out.

Hoosier Salon will handle the event promotion and sales, but you can help by posting on your website, Facebook and Instagram accounts. The Ribeyre Center is located at the corner of Main and Tavern Streets, under the clock tower.
