2023 New Harmony First Brush of Spring Art Sale

Attention Artists! Great news for this year’s traditional Art Sale!

Everyone knows New Harmony visitors love to patronize the arts. Did you know that the Art Sale has generated nearly a quarter of a million dollars in sales since 2010?

To meet that demand, we have eliminated the booth fee so more artists can participate. Artists will retain 60% of the purchase price at our traditional Art Sale in the Ribeyre Center (Gym). We want to help artists sell more work and give buyers an array of art choices. SPACE IS LIMITED

To make it easy for artists, Hoosier Salon will manage the event promotion and the sales. You can help us 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.

Our traditional Saturday-only Art Sale in Ribeyre Center on April 15, 2023 is from 9 a.m.–noon, (Central time). The sale will be operated by a representative of Hoosier Salon. Space is available to anyone; tables are provided, but you must provide the display and/or easels.

If you send your biography information before April 1, I will include it in a pamphlet for collectors. Please send it to lvolz@hoosiersalon.org. You may include a short artists statement, hometown, medium, a brief description of your art, and recent awards. A condensed version would be excellent, one or two short paragraphs.

Bring your painting(s) between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Central time) Friday, April 14 or 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. Saturday, April 15. All paintings and displays must be removed following the sale.

Art sold outside our traditional art sale.

In years past, we asked artists to only sell their art during structured events. This year, artists are encouraged to sell their art off their easels throughout the event with only a 10% self-reported commission to Hoosier Salon before May 1, 2022. Hoosier Salon, PO Box 338, New Harmony, IN 47631.

 Regular Hours:

Thursday and Sunday

1 – 4 p.m.

Friday and Saturday

12 – 4 p.m.
