Original Art Trunk Sale



As you know, I'm moving! One of the things I've been thinking about is lightening my flat files. They are just stuffed with art and I can't fit anything else in. It's time to make an art purge!

But what to do? At first I thought I'd just give it all to an archive like the Dodd Center  but it does seem a little sad to think of all of it just sitting in a vault (not that it's doing much more in my flat files). I'd love the art to be seen and enjoyed.

Then, my good friend Janet Wong suggested that I have special online "trunk sale" of my artwork for schools and librarians. I could offer them  the opportunity to purchase my art at a discounted price, it  would be displayed instead of put in a vault AND I it would be financial aid for our move!

The first 12 pieces will go on sale in a couple of weeks and I'm making a special list for it. If you are a teacher or librarian* and would be interested in purchasing my art, please sign up to be on the list HERE. There will be a choice to be on my newsletter list or the trunk sale list---make sure you click "Original Art Trunk Sale"  to be on the list but feel free to sign up for both (I have special giveaways on my newsletters, too).

Please spread the word! If you are a PTO member, please let your teachers and librarian know and have them get on the list! Tell your public librarians. I'd love for my art to be at your library!


*if you are a collector yourself, you are welcome to put yourself on the list, too.

I hope it's okay that I signed up. I'm just a Mom who would love to see your art hanging in our school library. It's a teeny tiny island school and their budget doesn't lend themselves to this kind of thing. I'd love to try to buy one for them and donate it. If you feel that's not what you are trying to do, that's okay. We are just big Grace fans in our house, and I know our little gal would light up to see your artwork hanging in your school.

This will be super, Grace--a win-win for everyone!

Hi Kiy--Feel free to put yourself on the list. The reason I said schools & libraries is that even though I plan on slashing prices, they still might be expensive for an individual. But I think I will put some small, affordable pieces in as well so that there will be a range.
