3rd Annual yART Sale

yART Sale

 
YAC's third annual yART sale will be held on February 21st from 10-2 at the Powerhouse. Each year we clean up and clean out- extra supplies, half finished projects, works that were abandoned, broken or didn't turn out quite right. It's a yard sale for art.

This is a great time to finally move on from that experimental piece you tried in college but it didn't turn out right and you can't sell but you don't want to throw it away but who would you give it to? Or that painting your ex gave you, but you don't actually like it and now it's just collecting dust in your laundry room next to your washing machine. Or how about that hooked rug you started last summer.  Pack that stuff up and bring it to the yART sale! You can simply donate the items and know that they will find good homes, or you can receive points for them and shop for new to you stuff.
The YAC has already started a great pile of stuff from our classes and green cage, but the fun really starts with the community comes together to trade supplies and works. We hope you will help make this a continuing tradition by coming out and adding to our mix, but if you can't, please pass along the information to others who you think would be interested.
So clean out those closets! Free the space under your bed! Finally admit you're never going to finish that hooked rug/macrame wall hanging/mosaic birdbath and come take home someone else's half finished rug/hanging/birdbath! 
 
There is something for everyone. See you on February 21st 10-2 at the Powerhouse.
